Languages of publication
W niniejszym opracowaniu jako podstawy teoretyczne wykorzystano zasobowe ujęcie zarządzania strategicznego oraz koncepcję przedsiębiorczości strategicznej. Przeprowadzone badania empiryczne miały na celu sprawdzenie ról – mediującej strategii przedsiębiorstwa i moderującej otoczenia zadaniowego w zależności zachodzącej pomiędzy przedsiębiorczością organizacyjną a efektywnością organizacyjną przedsiębiorstwa. Potwierdzono, że strategia postępowa wzmacnia pozytywne efekty przedsiębiorczości organizacyjnej, natomiast hipoteza dotycząca moderującej roli otoczenia zadaniowego została sfalsyfikowana. Całość dostarcza bardziej szczegółowej analizy wpływu przedsiębiorczości organizacyjnej jako zdolności dynamicznej na efektywność organizacyjną przedsiębiorstwa.
Drawing on a resource-based perspective as well as strategic entrepreneurship theory, this empirical study examines how the performance effect of corporate entrepreneurship is mediated by firm strategy and task contingency regarding key environmental variables. It was discovered that prospector strategy mediates the relationship between corporate entrepreneurship and firm performance. However, the moderating effect of the task environment was not confirmed. This study provides a more fine-grained analysis on the performance implications of corporate entrepreneurship capability.
