Chapter 4: Antecedents of firm-level entrepreneurship: how organizational design coordinates and controls the firm’s entrepreneurial ecosystem

Nicolai J. Foss and Jacob Lyngsie

Abstract

In this chapter, the authors develop a framework to understand how organizational design fosters those behaviors that aggregate up firm-level entrepreneurial outcomes in an entrepreneurial ecosystem. Their proposition is that organizational design variables profoundly shape the acquisition, development, and organization of the focal firm’s entrepreneurial skill set, and in turn the discovery, evaluation, and exploitation of entrepreneurial opportunities. Overall, they sketch a framework that links organizational design, intra-firm entrepreneurial behaviors, and firm-level entrepreneurship.
