Abstract [en]

It have become increasingly discussed in marketing, management and general business journals that ‘Evolutionary’, ‘Darwinian’, and associated labels represent dynamical and contextual-oriented ideas that have relevance in the future for both researchers and practitioners. While these theories come in assorted packages adopted to diverse audiences and inquiries, to bring order it is a warranted issue to address converging themes of relatedness and complementariness among research branchings under these labels. This paper reviews influential but divergent evolutionary branches to the study of organizational change, market dynamics, and industry and firm evolution. Building on this review, the paper address affinity and advocates that abstracted records of Darwinism demonstrate generic principles that could amalgamate the various branches of evolution-theoretic research upon a shared body of underlying commitments and principles. The concluding part considers relevance for future research in the light of standardization/adaptation problems in today’s evolutionary branches of business research.
