Abstract: Traditionally, growth of the firm is described in stages with a focus on comparing outcomes such as increasing the size, scope and various other performance measures. Each stage has been defined by the firm’s organizational characteristics such as its structure, culture and ability to change, to learn, to innovate and to be entrepreneurial. While the extant research has been carried out in silos for each of these specific aspects of growth there is additional benefit to conceptualizing firm growth as an ongoing multi-faceted process. Accordingly, the papers in this panel offer a multi-theoretical perspective which then lends itself to a set of empirical results and regularities with the potential to facilitate a richer and deeper understanding of how firms grow.
