Competence, governance, and entrepreneurship : advances in economic strategy research ( Book )
19 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and German and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This title illustrates modern economics. Because it informs strategic choices, it is relevant to business administration in general, and for strategic management in particular. Two dominant streams may be identified in the literature, namely the "competence" and "governance" perspectives on the firm. While there has been little direct discussion between the main proponents of these perspectives, both claim that they are reaching for a "strategic theory of the firm". Such a theory would not only shed light on the classical questions considered in the theory of the firm (e.g. why firms exist, what determines their boundaries and internal organization), but would also be helpful for informing strategy issues, such as understanding strategic flexibility, strategic options, and the sources of competitive advantage. This volume brings together prominent voices on competence, governance, and entrepreneurship to advance and stimulate economic strategy research
Resources, firms, and strategies : a reader in the resource-based perspective ( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Strategic management has been increasingly characterized by an emphasis on core competences. This reader brings together extracts from the seminal articles that created this dominant perspective in strategic management
Organizing entrepreneurial judgment : a new approach to the firm by Nicolai J Foss ( Book )
11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Entrepreneurship, long neglected by economists and management scholars, has made a dramatic comeback in the last two decades, not only among academic economists and management scholars, but also among policymakers, educators and practitioners. Likewise, the economic theory of the firm, building on Ronald Coase's (1937) seminal analysis, has become an increasingly important field in economics and management. Despite this resurgence, there is still little connection between the entrepreneurship literature and the literature on the firm, both in academia and in management practice. This book fills this gap by proposing and developing an entrepreneurial theory of the firm that focuses on the connections between entrepreneurship and management. Drawing on insights from Austrian economics, it describes entrepreneurship as judgmental decision made under uncertainty, showing how judgment is the driving force of the market economy and the key to understanding firm performance and organization"--
Towards a competence theory of the firm by Nicolai J Foss ( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explores a new theory of the firm produced through an exchange between management theory and economics. In the process economics is seen to provide a foundational element for strategy research whilst developing a more realistic theory of the firm with a greater emphasis on its internal features. The success of competence theories of the firm also reflects their ability to explain significant trends in the business world, notably the declining importance of conglomerates and critical features in the success of Asian and Japanese business
Entrepreneurship and the firm : Austrian perspectives on economic organization by N. J Foss ( Book )
13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While characteristically "Austrian" economic themes are clearly relevant to the business firm, Austrian economists have said little about management, organization and strategy. The 12 chapters in this work seek to advance the understanding of these issues by drawing on Austrian ideas

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Innovating organization and management : new sources of competitive advantage by Nicolai J Foss ( Book )
17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The search for competitive advantage serves as the basis for organizational strategy. This book argues that there are four key sources of competitive advantage and financial success that have not been given the attention they deserve. Firstly, that organizational design and management processes may be strategic resources in their own right. Secondly, that organizational design and management processes can be deployed to create new strategic resources. Thirdly, that managers have begun to think of organizational design and management processes in a proactive way rather than seeing them more passively as necessary facilitators of success. Fourthly, that this new way of looking at organization and management requires a search for new ways of structuring organizational design and managerial processes. These points are driven home through case studies of the Danish firms LEGO Group, Vestas Wind Systems, Coloplast, Chr. Hansen, IC Companys and NKT Flexibles"--
Knowledge, economic organization and property rights : selected papers by Nicolai J Foss ( Book )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nicolai Foss, the influential European management scholar, presents in this essential book sixteen of his most prominent papers. Written from a new institutional and Austrian economics perspective, this book focuses on the knowledge-based view of the firm, economic organization and property rights economics. The author critically examines notions of routines and capabilities and calls for the use of micro-foundations in management research. He illustrates the need for more emphasis to be placed upon managerial opportunism and other organizational costs, and highlights how concepts of property rights can inform strategic management. Accompanied by a lively and accessible introduction, this informative volume will invigorate strategic management, organization and international business students and scholars, as well as economists concerned with organization
