Entrepreneurial Initiatives as a Microfoundation of Dynamic Capabilities

In this article, co-authored with Birgit Renzl, we develop a model of how entrepreneurial initiatives change existing operational routines and, hence, serve as microfoundations of dynamic capabilities. We develop a conceptual model that strives to explain those dynamics. While we build on the capability perspective of organizational routines, this article provides a way to understand how individuals change those operative routines and capabilities. The article contributes to research that connects strategic management and entrepreneurship research as well as microfoundations research.
