Chapter 2: Entrepreneurial teams research in movement
The quantitative and qualitative importance of entrepreneurial teams has been increasingly recognized in entrepreneurship theory but the overall number of research articles addressing this topic is still relatively low. While recent reviews on research on entrepreneurial teams exist, each with a specific focus (e.g., team diversity, cognition, intermediary mechanisms), this chapter advances existing knowledge by examining entrepreneurial teams in terms of movement. Movement is captured from a developmental stage perspective and the chapter uses this approach to critically review entrepreneurial team literature through the three main phases of an entrepreneurial team: forming, functioning and evolving. Thereafter, the chapter takes a more holistic approach and seeks to capture the weaker and stronger signals within the current evolution of entrepreneurial team research. In striving to identify the lessons that are being learned, the chapter also outlines how future research efforts could be reinforced and developed in the most impactful ways.
