I argue that a closer examination of specific evaluations by audience members, rather than aggregate assessments of objects, can shed(More)
A central issue in the study of organizations relates to the explanation of the genesis of organizational diversity. In this context, niche-width theory deals with the consequences for organizational form survival of intertemporal selection processes in industries that feature environmental variation over time. Drawing from evolutionary biology, the theory(More)
