Hanna Arendt stated it used to be banal. The purple Sox examine the Yankees. And during this hilarious, traumatic, quirky, and very good little e-book, famous illustrators Nicholas Blechman and Christoph Niemann current a catalog in their personal misanthropic imaginings. the 2 met in 1997, while Blechman used to be paintings director for the recent York occasions Op-ed web page and Niemann, now a widespread contributor to the hot Yorker, had simply got to work in manhattan urban.

Further, his approach directs no or only cursory attention to the possibility of alternative modes of exploitation for given “opportunities” (Shane & Venkataraman, 2000; Van de Ven, Angle & Poole, 1989). If interpreted as a delineation of the (entire) research domain his take on entrepreneurship appears overly narrow in these regards. In short, I see Gartner’s focus as the natural task for an organization theorist to take on within a somewhat broader domain. Below I will try to create precisely that: a somewhat broader, yet sufficiently precise, domain delineation.

The researcher is well advised to rummage the toolbox a little more before trying such questionable solutions. However. sometimes the toolbox does not contain the perfect theory. This is when a sound amount of creative disrespect may be needed vis-à-vis theory. Theories are not untouchables; one might need to adapt and combine them in order to get the tools needed to solve the problem. Using theory is not a reason to stop thinking for oneself! Sometimes entirely new tools may need to be developed.

Entrepreneurship research should also study failure and induced processes of emergence. Piecing it all together, I arrive at the following (cf. Davidsson, 2003a): Starting from assumptions of uncertainty and heterogeneity, the domain of entrepreneurship research encompasses the study of processes of (real or induced, and completed as well as terminated) emergence of new business ventures, across organizational contexts. This entails the study of the origin and characteristics of venture ideas as well as their contextual fit; of behaviors in the interrelated processes of discovery and exploitation of such ideas, and of how the ideas and behaviors link to different types of direct and indirect antecedents and outcomes on different levels of analysis.
