The new institutionalism in strategic management by Paul L Ingram( )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Institutions are the "rules of the game" of economic behavior. They include the laws of states, the policies of organizations, and even the normative prescriptions of cultures. In this exciting volume, a diverse and accomplished group of scholars work to integrate theories of institutions with strategic management. The research they present examines a wide range of industrial contexts, ranging from American retailing at the end of the nineteenth century, to German tax law at the beginning of the twenty-first. Likewise, the chapters apply a diverse set of methods, including historical analysis. These varied research styles make the overall coherence of the authors' arguments more compelling. The key arguments go beyond the familiar position that institutions affect economic performance to describe a reciprocal relationship between institutions and organization strategy. Indeed, they suggest a broadening of the scope of strategy, to include efforts to influence the law, to reconfigure organizational boundaries, and to develop the legitimacy that enables strategies to be effective. Together, the chapters form an empirical and theoretical foundation for the increasing inclusion of institutions in strategic management. -- from back cover

Economic institutions of strategy by Jackson A Nickerson( )

18 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the publication of Oliver E. Williamson's Economic Institutions of Capitalism in 1985, new institutional economics approaches have increasingly been used to understand strategic challenges. This volume brings together the disparate strands of new institutional economics-based strategy research in a single comprehensive source. The papers in Economic Institutions of Strategy are designed to provide three kinds of value to scholars or organization and strategy. First, EIS highlights a wide array of new institutional approaches to the study of firm performance and its antecedents. Most notably, papers underscore how transaction cost economics has informed the study of firm performance across a variety of contexts and dependent variables. Second, for a specific set of topics, papers review the literature and bring readers up to date on the research found within these topics. These topics cover value creation and capture within and between firms. Third and most importantly, the volume explores and generates new research programs for organizational and strategy scholars studying organizational performance. -- from back cover
History and strategy by Steven J Kahl( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Business historians and economic historians frequently contribute to our understanding of strategic management, and strategy scholars often rely on a deep understanding of historical context to make sense of classic strategy issues. Historically, the two sets of scholars have not always communicated with each other as effectively as one might hope. They also have different approaches to methodology and assessment of validity of results, which adds to this 'two solitudes'. In this volume, strategy scholars, business historians, and economic historians are brought together to develop a volume that explores the complementarities of approaches
Entrepreneurship, innovation, and platforms by Jeffrey L Furman( )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite recent advances in our understanding of how innovation and entrepreneurship impact the creation and appropriation of value, numerous questions remain unanswered. This volume draws together scholars working at the forefront of entrepreneurship-, strategy-, and innovation-related domains to explore these questions
Collaboration and competition in business ecosystems( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research featured in this volume is devoted to understanding the competitive and collaborative challenges that firms face as they manage interactions with different actors in dynamic environments, in what are coming to be referred to as business or innovation 'ecosystems'. Rapid technological change, globalization, and recent financial turbulence have brought us to a point where managers are painfully aware that 'no man [or firm] is an island.' Success in business, in both the profit and non-profit sectors, increasingly relies upon collaboration with upstream suppliers, alliance partners, and downstream complementors. This volume presents new findings of how innovation and value are created in collaborative networks, specifically 'ecosystem analysis' and the unique roles of individual actors within this system
Academic earmarks and the returns to lobbying by John M De Figueiredo( Book )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite a large literature on lobbying and information transmission by interest groups, no prior study has measured returns to lobbying. In this paper, we statistically estimate the returns to lobbying by universities for educational earmarks (which now represent 10 percent of federal funding of university research). The returns to lobbying approximate zero for universities not represented by a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee (SAC) or House Appropriations Committee (HAC). However, the average lobbying university with representation on the SAC receives an average return to one dollar of lobbying of $11-$17; lobbying universities with representation on the HAC obtain $20-$36 for each dollar spent. Moreover, we cannot reject the hypothesis that lobbying universities with SAC or HAC representation set the marginal benefit of lobbying equal to its marginal cost, although the large majority of universities with representation on the HAC and SAC do not lobby, and thus do not take advantage of their representation in Congress. On average, 45 percent of universities are predicted to choose the optimal level of lobbying. In addition to addressing questions about the federal funding of university research, we also discuss the impact of our results for the structure of government.

How does the government (want to) fund science? : politics, lobbying and academic earmarks by John M De Figueiredo( )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines academic earmarks and their role in the funding of university research. It provides a summary and review of the evidence on the supply of earmarks by legislators. It then discusses the role of university lobbying for earmarks on the demand side. Finally, the paper examines the impact of earmarks on research quantity and quality

Public contracting for private innovation : government expertise, decision rights, and performance outcomes by Joshua R Bruce( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine how the U.S. Federal Government governs R & D contracts with private-sector firms. The government chooses between two contractual forms: grants and cooperative agreements. The latter provides the government substantially greater discretion over, and monitoring of, project progress. Using novel data on R & D contracts and on the geo-location and technical expertise of each government scientist over a 12-year period, we test implications from the organizational economics and contracting literatures. We find that cooperative agreements are more likely to be used for early-stage projects and those for which local government scientific personnel have relevant technical expertise; in turn, cooperative agreements yield greater innovative output as measured by patents, controlling for endogeneity of contract form. The results are consistent with multi-task agency and transaction-cost approaches that emphasize decision rights and monitoring
