Advancing theory development in entrepreneurship research, 2019 AOM, Boston

 

Despite the growth of entrepreneurship research, theory development has remained a key concern, with some scholars arguing that much of the research is atheoertical or that theory building/development is somewhat ad hoc and largely pre-paradigmatic. The goal of this Symposium is to shed light on how to advance theory development in entrepreneurship. Specifically, the Symposium seeks to address three broad questions. First, given the pre-paradigmatic stage of theory building and development in entrepreneurship, how do we extend and refine current theories to enhance our understanding of entrepreneurship? Second, how do we use various approaches to develop new ideas or theories? Third, what can we learn from the personal journeys of accomplished scholars in developing new theories?

Theory development in entrepreneurship research, 2018 AOM, Chicago

 

As the entrepreneurship field grows, so does the need to advance theory for better description, explanation, and prediction of entrepreneurship phenomena. Theory development has been hampered sometimes by the tendency among scholars to seek theoretical novelty and the pressure in academic journals for empirical research to make theoretical contributions. The overarching goal of the workshop is to discuss how to enhance theory development in entrepreneurship. The workshop also offers a platform for a dialogue with our distinguished scholars about the future directions in theoretical entrepreneurship research.

Real options and strategic entrepreneurship, 2018 AOM, Chicago

 

Real options theory as one of the more generalizable theories in management can be applied to a wide range of core entrepreneurship issues such as the decision to become an entrepreneur and the decision to finance a new venture. Yet, with few exceptions, real options theory has not worked its way into the entrepreneurship filed as in other fields such as strategic management. In this workshop, we discuss how real options theory can be applied to offer unique insights into entrepreneurship phenomena and how it can help enhance the theory development in entrepreneurship.

Real options symposium, 2010 AOM, Montreal

 

Real options theory has emerged as an important theoretical tool for strategy and entrepreneurship. This symposium attempts to move forward theoretical and empirical research in real options by joining this theory with other organization economics theories and models to offer insights into key issues in strategy and entrepreneurship.
