The theory of the growth of the firm by Edith Tilton Penrose( )

169 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 3,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do some firms perform better than others? What enables a firm to grow and take advantage of its opportunities? Currently much discussion of these questions pivots around the ideas of competencies and capabilities, and the concept of the learning organization or knowledge-creating company. The Theory of the growth of the firm is a rich and pioneering work that addresses these questions and laid the foundation for this approach often referred to as the "resource based view of the firm." Edith Penrose analyzes managerial activities and decisions, organizational routines, and knowledge creation within the company and argues that they are critical to the ability of a firm to grow

The growth of firms; Middle East oil, and other essays by Edith Tilton Penrose( Book )

16 editions published between 1971 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in 1971: At first glance it might seem that the three subjects dealt with in the essays written over the last twenty years and now collected in this volume could hardly be more diverse, beginning with the growth of the firm and moving from the international petroleum industry to the Middle East generally. Oddly enough, however, these subjects are connected by the same type of historical logic that characterizes the diversification of an industrial firm: the logic in the simple principle that one thing leads to another

LIBYA by J. A Allan( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oil revenues have made Libya rich since 1961, when oil exports began. This new wealth has affected all sectors of the economy and especially the agricultural sector; there have been considerable movements of population, changes in the use of land, and, possibly most important, there has been a profound change in the expectations of the Libyan people. Agriculture was the major contributor to GDP before oil and even in 1968 it was still the major sector in terms of employment, occupying 32 per cent of the employed population; as such it has always been given prominence in government planning. Th

Edith Penrose et la croissance des entreprises by Lise Arena( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

S'il est courant aujourd'hui de parler de compétences, de connaissances, d'imagination, de flexibilité ou encore de ressources pour comprendre la croissance des "firmes-réseaux" ou des entreprises innovantes, cela le fut beaucoup moins au milieu du XXe siècle lorsque dominait le modèle des grandes firmes managériales et les interrogations sur leur "taille optimale". Toute l'originalité des travaux d'Edith Penrose tient dans la mobilisation avant-gardiste de ces concepts pour construire une théorie dynamique de la firme et de sa croissance qui dépasse les frontières disciplinaires entre l'économie et la gestion. Comme le montre cet ouvrage, la filiation entre les travaux de Penrose et les débats actuels dans le cadre de la Resource-Based View transparaît tant dans la distinction entre "taille" et "croissance" de la firme, que dans le rôle de la connaissance dans cette croissance aujourd'hui au coeur du champ du management stratégique. Cet ouvrage contient une traduction inédite d'un article de Penrose, peu connu, publié en 1955 dans l'American Economic Review : "Limits to the Growth and Size of Firms."
