Entrepreneurial Strategy Orientation

Henri Hakala

Abstract—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.

Index Terms—Strategic entrepreneurship, dynamic capability, strategic orientations.
