Strategic corporate entrepreneurship: a configuration approach-based case study
by Sascha Kraus; Coen Rigtering
International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing (IJEV), Vol. 9, No. 2, 2017

Abstract: This article approaches strategic (corporate) entrepreneurship as a response to increased complexity and turbulence confronting professional service firms. By applying the configuration approach, we analyse the strategy, operating environment, organisational structure and effect of the founding person on a highly successful professional service firm in The Netherlands. Our analysis shows that a company that actively manages all four proposed configurational domains is not only better able to create organisational change, growth and financial returns, but is also more resistant to crisis situations.
