In the Spring of 2005 I attended a terrific workshop on “The Entrepreneurial Theory of the Firm,” organized by Sharon Alvarez and Jay Barney and held at Ohio State University. Participants included Mark Casson, Dick Langlois, Sid Winter, Ulrich Witt, Ivo Zander, Simon Parker, Todd Zenger, Steve Michael, Bill Schultze, and several others. The papers and discussions explored a variety of approaches for linking the theory of entrepreneurship to the economic and strategic theory of the firm, a subject near and dear to our hearts here at O&M.

The workshop papers have now been published as a special issue of the Journal of Management Studies (volume 44, number 7, November 2007), edited by Sharon and Jay. A special contribution from Brian Loasby, who wasn’t able to attend the workshop, is included. And don’t miss this paper from an unusually structured joint-spousal team.
