Top Management Team, Middle Management & Firm Strategic Renewal

Following Hambrick and Mason’s (1984) seminal work, researchers have devoted much energy to understanding how the CEO and other members of the managerial upper echelon might influence firm’ strategic behavior and performance. While this venerable body of research has provided invaluable insights (Haleblian and Finkelstein, 1993; Kor, 2003; Zhang and Rajgopalan, 2010), there is a growing recognition that extant models overlook the critical role played by a firm’s middle management in influencing change and renewal in the firm. In light of this recognition, a so-called “middle management” perspective is beginning to emerge as a complement to the upper echelon perspective that has dominated earlier research (Rouleau and Balogun, 2011; Wooldridge, Schmid and Floyd, 2008; Yang, Zhang and Tsui, 2010). Drawing on both the upper echelon and middle management perspectives, the present project aims to carry the literature forward by way of a multi-level study that recognizes that both the firm’s senior-most executives and middle managers matter when it comes to strategic change and renewal. As suggested in a recent conceptual article by Raes, Glunk, Heijltjes and Roe (2011), top and middle management levels do not operate in isolation, but together. As such, rather than focus on one or the other, models that include the interaction of the two should have greater descriptive validity and explanatory power. In examining the joint effect of the firm’s top management and middle management on strategic renewal, the present project fills a major gap in the literature. Its objective is to systematically build new theory and to test it using large-scale longitudinal and cross-sectional data.


Organizational Antecedents and Consequences of Intrapreneurship

This research project is part of the INSCOPE NWO funded research program “Intrapreneurship – Enabling Talent for Innovation”. Besides Rotterdam School of Management, three other Universities (University of Utrecht, University Maastricht, University of Twente) and TNO participate in this research program as well as several external partners (DSM, Randstad, Port Authority Rotterdam, Calymount Technologies, Alliander, MVO, High Tech NL, Latexfalt, Forbo Flooring, Energy Academy, Vision Dynamic Group). This research program on intrapreneurship focuses on how human capital can be acquired and developed to stimulate bottom-up innovation and improve the performance of firms, regions, and top sectors. The term intrapreneurship is derived from a combination of “intra” internal (to the organization), and “entrepreneurship”: intrapreneurship involves the entrepreneurial activities of individuals within organizations. These activities aim at creating new businesses in established organizations through innovation (Zahra, 1991).

In this particular PhD project the focus is on the organizational antecedents and outcomes of intrapreneurship. Despite the importance of human capital and organizational antecedents as sources of competitive advantage (e.g., Birkinshaw et al., 2008; Unger et al., 2011; Volberda et al., 2013), research on such non-technological determinants of innovation is relatively limited compared to technological innovation (Crossan and Apaydin, 2010). In this research program we will analyse the prevalence of intrapreneurship and how intrapreneurship is enabled and constrained by management practices, organizational structures and the context of the organization. The aim of this research project is to provide new insights on how long and to what extent established medium-sized and large corporations can renew themselves through nurturing intrapreneurship.

The empirical research will consist of a mixed-method approach. The quantitative research will be partly based on the Erasmus Competition and Innovation Monitor: an existing survey instrument enabling panel data research. This will be complemented with comparative case studies within the participating companies, namely DSM, Port of Rotterdam Authorithy, Calymount Technologies, and Randstad Netherlands.
