This study seeks to fill this gap in the innovation literature by examining differences in knowledge search strategy by SMEs. Drawing on a survey data obtained from 3,175 SMEs, we used cluster analysis to identify groups of SMEs that pursue homogenous knowledge search strategy. The study result...

Drawing on a sample of 3,175 SMEs in South Korea, we used cluster analysis to identify groups of SMEs pursuing homogenous innovation strategies. We also examined the effect of SMEs' innovation strategies on financia...

Despite much interest in the characteristics of entrepreneurs and their impact on venture performance or survival of start-ups, the relationship between such entrepreneur characteristics and successful venture exit has largely been unexplored. This paper explores the impact of the entrepreneur’s pre-entry industry experience, general education, and post-entry labor on entrepreneurial exit. We distinguish closing down of a venture from the termination of business because of a merger or acquisitio...

The aim of this study is to provide a theoretical framework concerning how firms exert isomorphic pressures to survive and thrive in the existing market. In addition to the institutional strategies (Lawrence, 1999), the authors clarify the relationship among isomorphic pressures from firms, the value of firm resources, and sustainable competitive advantage. For this purpose, this paper reviews institutional isomorphism and relevant theories like resource based view, transaction cost theory, and ...

The purpose of this study is to investigate the critical success factors of platform leadership in the Web 2.0 based service business environment. Because of the lack of theoretical foundation for this topic, we adopted relevant theory and case study analyses. Representative Web 2.0 firms which have developed platform leadership were chosen and analyzed on the basis of previous research on platform strategy through spider web analysis. This study shows that Web 2.0 firms such as Google, Flickr, ...
