The concept of dispositional resistance to change has been introduced in a series of exploratory and confirmatory analyses through which the validity of the Resistance to Change (RTC) Scale has been established (S. Oreg, 2003). However, the vast majority of participants with whom the scale was validated were from the United States. The purpose of the(More)
In this paper, we study the transition from planned venture to operational start-up in the emergent independent power sector. While planned ventures face tremendous obstacles in assembling the resources necessary to begin operations, we hypothesize and show that formal certification from authorized actors increases the likelihood of making this transition.(More)
This study examines the effects of formal structure on the performance of new ventures in the emergent Internet sector during the years 1996–2001. Burns and Stalker (1961) argued that in dynamic economic sectors, firms with organic structures are more effective than those with more mechanistic structures. We suggest this proposition does not hold for new(More)
This study advances our understanding of network dynamics by applying matching theory to the formation of interorganizational alliances. We introduce market complementary and resource compatibility as two critical matching criteria in alliance formation, and argue that good matches increase firm performance. Using data from liner shipping, we find effects(More)
Departing from prior work that demonstrates the stickiness and stability of alliance networks resulting from embeddedness, we extend matching theory to study firms’ withdrawal from alliances. Viewing alliance withdrawal as a result of firms’ pursuit of more promising alternative partners – outside options – rather than failures in collaboration, we predict(More)
organizations and psychological research on risk and decision making, we propose that the development of institutions that reduce the risks of entering new sectors has a stronger effect on the founding rates of firms using novel technologies than on firms using established technologies. In an analysis of the independent-power sector of the electricity(More)
There have been two approaches in the field of organization research and strategic management that account for the competitive advantage of multiunit-multimarket (MUMM) organizations. The multimarket strategy perspective claims the importance of patterns of competitive rivalry and structures of markets in which MUMM organizations are embedded. The multiunit(More)
With the idea of expediting drug development and increasing the availability of new medicines to patients, the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) was organized more than five years ago. Since then, significant progress has been made toward harmonizing preclinical and clinical requirements for the development of medicinal products. For companies(More)
Departing from prior work that demonstrates the stickiness and stability of alliance networks resulting from embeddedness, we extend matching theory to study firms‟ withdrawal from alliances. Viewing alliance withdrawal as a result of firms‟ pursuit of more promising alternative partners – outside options – rather than failures in collaboration, we predict(More)
