Strategic management research increasingly builds upon entrepreneurship-related concepts and variables. Here, entrepreneurial thinking often appears critical to organizational performance, especially in high-velocity environments. The dynamic capabilities approach, firmly anchored in the social and behavioral sciences, provides an overarching framework that can help explain the various paths through which entrepreneurial thinking affects managerial practices, including decision rules and routines, and even firm-level governance approaches, as well as organizational structures and systems. Entrepreneurial thinking morphed into dynamic capabilities appears to be the single most important driver of long-run competitive success, in terms of survival, profitability and growth. The conference Co-Chairs and Track Chairs invite submissions of proposals that will advance the dialogue on the value added of incorporating entrepreneurial thinking, and more broadly entrepreneurship related concepts and variables, as key building blocks in dynamic capabilities research and more generally, in strategic management research.
