    Is the Family an "Asset" or "Liability" for Firm Performance? The Moderating Role of Environmental Dynamism2014In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627X, Vol. 52, no 2, p. 210-225Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By integrating the stewardship and agency perspectives, our study extends the understanding of the dynamics that regulate the family as either an asset or liability for the firm. Our results show that the percentage of family members on the top management team (TMT) has an inverted U-shaped relationship with firm performance. However, when environmental dynamism is low this curvilinear relationship becomes steeper. When environmental dynamism is high, an increased percentage of family members on the TMT enhances firm performance.

    Commitment escalation to a failing family business2018In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627X, Vol. 56, no 3, p. 494-512Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The overarching intent of this manuscript is to heighten awareness to the concept of commitment escalation as it bears on a failing family business. Specifically, drawing on the concept of emotional ownership, together with self-justification arguments, we a) identify factors considered to be most forceful in contributing to the presence of commitment escalation and thus, resistance to change in a failing family business (i.e., emotional ownership, feeling of responsibility, investment of capital, temporal distance from the founder’s business, individualism/collectivism), and b) model these related factors in a form that can serve heuristically to stimulate future empirical research capable of testing for the construct validity of commitment escalation in a family business context. We present potential items that may be useful for future scholars in measuring our constructs of interest as they relate to a failing family business.

    Policy Support for Women Entrepreneurs’ Access to Financial Capital: Evidence from Canada, Germany, Ireland, Norway, and the United States2018In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This cross-country study documents policies and practices designed to increase women entrepreneurs’ access to financial capital in Canada, Germany, Ireland, Norway, and the United States. Drawing on feminist theory, we examine assumptions of policy alongside the eligibility criteria, rules and regulations of practices. Our findings reveal that four of the five country policies examined were predicated on a neo-liberal perspective that positions women entrepreneurs as economic assets. We offer insights into opportunities for modernizing policies and practices in ways that will enhance the legitimacy of a more diverse array of women entrepreneurs and increase their access to financial capital.

    The Reciprocal Relationship of Innovation Capabilities and Socioemotional Wealth in a Family Firm2017In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627X, Vol. 55, no 4, p. 547-570Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with entrepreneurship in family firms by researching how technology-based innovation capabilities influence the socioemotional dimensions of the owning family and vice versa. In combination with dynamic capabilities, the socioemotional wealth (SEW) perspective offers a framework that enables an investigation of the nature of innovation capabilities in family firms. Studying a single firm, we identify a positive reciprocal relationship between innovation capabilities and SEW. We find that this reciprocal relationship within the family business presents itself in a synergistic fashion, yielding synergies between financial wealth and SEW. The findings contribute to the literature on entrepreneurship and innovation in family businesses.

    Entrepreneurial Leadership and Gender: Exploring Theory and Practice in Global Contexts2015In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627X, Vol. 53, no 3, p. 581-586Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reflects on extant scholarship on entrepreneurial leadership and gender, as published in both the Journal of Small Business Management and elsewhere. As such, it lays the foundation for the special issue, and contributes to current knowledge in the field. Our selected papers-summarized and critiqued in this article-collectively offer a contemporary view of women's entrepreneurial leadership at the global level that should usefully contribute to extending scholarly debates. In this regard, we highlight the diversity and complexity of women's entrepreneurial leadership, and demonstrate that it is both economically and contextually embedded, worthy of further scholarly attention.

    Planning and the Entrepreneur: A Longitudinal Examination of Nascent Entrepreneurs in Sweden2012In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627X, Vol. 50, no 3, p. 365-388Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We studied 623 nascent entrepreneurs during a six-year period, examining how their planning decisions impact venture-level performance. Our study is unique in that we tracked nascent ventures, examining their planning behavior, including changes to plans. Relying on the theory of legitimacy, this paper adds to the scholarly debate over the merits of business planning by examining, longitudinally, the impact of planning during a six-year period, accounting for both pre-emergent nascent activity and post-emergent success factors. We found that neither formal planning nor changes in the business plan increased venture-level performance over the six-year study period.

    Satisfaction of entrepreneurs: A comparison between founders and family business successors2019In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although a substantial body of literature compares the job satisfaction of employees to that of the self-employed, scholars rarely take into account the heterogeneity of the latter population. We compare the level and the drivers of job satisfaction of founders and successors in family businesses. Building on the notion of procedural utility, which entails the gratification that individuals experience in the process of performing a task, we find that job satisfaction and perceived discretion in decision making is lower for successors. We also find that perceived discretion fully mediates the relationship between mode of entry into entrepreneurship and job satisfaction.

    International Corporate Entrepreneurship among SMEs: A test of Stevenson’s notion of Entrepreneurial Management2015In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627X, Vol. 53, no 3, p. 780-800Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite increasing attention devoted to international entrepreneurship, little is known about firm-level entrepreneurship carried out by established small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in international markets. We apply the opportunity-based conceptualization of “Entrepreneurial Management” by Howard Stevenson to international corporate entrepreneurship activities of SMEs. We hypothesize that the different dimensions of Stevenson's theory have a positive impact on SMEs' international corporate entrepreneurship. We test the hypotheses on a longitudinal sample of international SMEs. Our results show the expected positive effects of some, but not all, aspects of Stevenson's theory. Thereby, the paper suggests more precise boundary conditions of the theory and contributes to the literature on international corporate entrepreneurship by SMEs.

    Family firm heterogeneity and governance: a configuration approach2014In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627X, Vol. 52, no 2, p. 192-209Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Family involvement in ownership and management of business varies significantly within family firms. Although the literature recognizes the diversity in family firms, it remains unclear what governance mechanisms are most appropriate to achieve prioritized performance goals of different types of family firms. By combining two established categorizations of family involvement in firm ownership and management, nine types of family firms are identified. Drawing on the configuration approach, we theorize the governance mechanisms likely to most efficiently address the incentive systems, authority relations, and norms of legitimization in each of these types of family firms.

    Institutional perspectives on entrepreneurial behavior in challenging environments2011In: Journal of small business management (Print), ISSN 0047-2778, E-ISSN 1540-627X, Vol. 49, no 1, p. 107-125Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the institutional embeddedness of entrepreneurial behavior. The institutional context influences the nature, pace of development, and extent of entrepreneurship as well as the way entrepreneurs behave. This is particularly apparent in challenging environments such as emerging market and transition economies with an uncertain, ambiguous, and turbulent institutional framework. The paper develops suggestions as to how to extend the current institutional approach by emphasizing that institutions not only influence entrepreneurs but entrepreneurs may also influence institutional development by contributing to institutional change. This also includes acknowledging the heterogeneity of entrepreneurial responses to institutional conditions, depending on the situational configuration of institutional fit, enterprise characteristics, and entrepreneur's background, in which the role of trust as an influence on entrepreneurial behavior needs to be investigated. By focusing on these interrelationships, the paper aims to make a theoretical contribution to the field of entrepreneurship, illustrating how entrepreneurial behavior is linked to its social context.
