—The paper explores the concept of strategic
entrepreneurship through strategic orientation literature. The
paper proposes that the orientation supporting entrepreneurial
strategy making, consist of complementary dimensions of
entrepreneurial exploration, strategic learning, resource
management and market positioning. The proposed
multidimensional dynamic capability, entrepreneurial strategy
orientation, provides the principles that direct and influence the
activities associated with strategic entrepreneurship. The paper
contributes by providing a framework for the transfer of
knowledge from the established literature on strategic
orientations to strategic entrepreneurship research.
Fundamentally, the framework proposes that directing a
company based on a single philosophy, be it resources, market
positions, learning or entrepreneurial actions, is simply not
going to be adequate in multi-polar world and in competition
against firms that have mastered multiple approaches.
—Strategic entrepreneurship, dynamic
capability, strategic orientations.
