    Do organizations really co-evolve?: Problematizing co-evolutionary change in management and organization studies2020Inngår i: Technological forecasting & social change, ISSN 0040-1625, E-ISSN 1873-5509, Vol. 155, artikkel-id 119964Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This conceptual article discusses and, from some aspects, also problematizes the state-of-the-art regarding co-evolutionary research in Management and Organization Studies (MOS). Analyzing 76 characteristic studies published since 2000, we address three simple, significant questions: What co-evolves? What causal relationships are considered? What are the theoretical processes? The motivation behind our contribution is twofold: on the one hand, the turn of the century witnessed the remarkable growth of inquiries which, at face value, have claimed to be “co-evolutionary”; but, on the other hand, specific analyses about where this fast-growing meta-theoretical perspective on social change is now, and where it could move towards in the future, are still missing in MOS. Our study reveals increasing heterogeneity in defining what co-evolves and the associated causal relationships. It also reveals the prevailing scarcity in explaining what processes substantially characterize co-evolution in MOS. With a view to shaping the future direction of research in this area, we propose four core principles that theoretically set the co-evolutionary project apart.

    How can biases affect entrepreneurial decision making? toward a behavioral approach to unicorns2022Inngår i: The International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal, ISSN 1554-7191, E-ISSN 1555-1938, Vol. 18, nr 2, s. 693-711Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    How can cognitive biases affect the birth and evolution of entrepreneurial ventures? In Entrepreneurial Decision Making (EDM), this lively research question remains largely unaddressed when the world of Unicorns, as a per se entrepreneurial species, is considered. Thus, through this conceptual article, we aim to contribute toward knowledge creation in this context. We start by proposing a conceptual framework of Unicorns’ EDM based on a behavioral approach. Through three propositions, this novel framework advances how the birth, transition, and consolidation of a Unicorn may be explained by the sequentially intertwined occurrence of biases, from which establishment and legitimization eventually emerge. We complement the framework with examples from the social media industry and then discuss its main implications for theory and practice.

    Asymmetrically realized absorptive capacity and relationship durability2012Inngår i: Management Decision, ISSN 0025-1747, E-ISSN 1758-6070, Vol. 50, nr 1, s. 43-57Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Absorbing knowledge from partner firms is a key feature of marketing relationships. Recent publications have called for more dynamic and cognitive approaches in marketing relationship research. Also, established definitions of absorptive capacities have been questioned. This article aims to address propositions that take these overlooked and questioned elements into consideration, which can help explain conducts and dependencies, and affect relationship durability.

    Design/methodology/approach: The authors put forward four propositions by combining literature on interfirm relationships and managerial cognition with evolutionary ideas from marketing and management literature.

    Findings: The authors embrace a redefinition of potential absorptive capacity (the disposed capacity to absorb knowledge) and realized absorptive capacity (the absorption of knowledge actually performed). This distinction can, to some extent, be explained by the degree of cognitive attention given to the marketing relationship. Moreover, asymmetrically realized absorptive capacityvis-à-vis a partner substantially influences the dynamics of partners' conduct and dependency, which may vary the risk that the relationship will end.

    Practical implications: The propositions illustrate how a motivated partner that gives more attention to the relationship is more likely to absorb more knowledge than its counterpart, which can threaten the durability of a relationship. Thus, managers need to be able to understand possible long-term consequences of the partner's conduct in order to avoid losses of joint strategic resources and relational benefits.

    Originality/value: By advocating an evolutionary approach, an impetus for more dynamism in marketing relationship research is presented. This study also shows the importance of including the longitudinal dimension in analysis if one wants to understand change in – and durability of – marketing relationships.

    Clustering the imp thought: searching roots and diversities in imp research2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    IMP research is often treated as an empirical perspective describing complexities of repeated business-to-business exchanges and their embeddedness. While building on some common understandings and concepts, this paper asks: How homogeneous is the IMP research? This paper uses cluster analysis to capture the roots and various sub-groups of IMP research as means to depict the question of homogeneity (i.e. a core focus in the research) or heterogeneity (i.e. using references from other fields or specific to sub-fields) of the IMP thought. In this scientific work in progress paper we introduce how we design to use bibliographical methods in order to harvest data from an extensive amount of IMP-related articles written from the 1970’s onwards. In this first attempt to reveal IMP we used overall 294 articles yielded to 10,615 co-citation relationships. A threshold of minimum number of citations of a cited reference was set to five (5) to capture such references that have been cited in multiple publications. We introduce visual mapping of defined subject area clusters and as an example we describe shortly clusters. Perhaps not surprisingly our findings suggest that IMP research is not so homogenous, with at least four clear clusters of IMP-research each utilizing different key references.

    Charting the reach and contribution of IMP literature in other disciplines: A bibliometric analysis2020Inngår i: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 87, s. 47-62Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The acknowledgement of a research tradition by other disciplines shows its contribution to the development of the broader body of scientific knowledge. This paper investigates the contribution of IMP (Industrial Marketing and Purchasing) research to broader research disciplines by analyzing how researchers within and beyond IMP have cited core IMP articles. First, through quantitative bibliometric analysis, the paper identifies the diffusion to other research disciplines. Thereafter, through qualitative analysis, the impact of the IMP perspective is captured to understand how strong these imprints are. The analyses show that IMP research has been noticed among a range of adjacent research disciplines. However, the use of IMP references has generally been rudimentary, and without a deeper understanding of the IMP ontology, meaning that IMP still has some “weak ties” to the other disciplines. Establishing IMP's contribution through enduring imprints would need further engagement with researchers from other research disciplines and publications in top journals. The paper contributes empirically with how the IMP perspective has spread beyond the IMP Group and theoretically by adding insight into how research ideas travel and transform to other disciplines.

    A network perspective on resource interaction: Past, present and future2024Inngår i: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 172, artikkel-id 114253Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The importance of resources as an essential component in value co-creation processes is core to multiple perspectives in management and marketing. These include the Resource-Based View, Resource Integration within Service-Dominant Logic (S-DL), Resource Dependence Theory, Resource Advantage Theory, and Resourcing. In this Editorial we compare Resource Interaction in Industrial Marketing and Purchasing (IMP) with these other perspectives, stressing both differences and complementarities. The comparison includes an explanation of why Resource Interaction in IMP is unique when utilized to explain the dynamics of change in business networks. We also introduce and synthesize seven new articles included in this Special Issue, all of which combine Resource Interaction in IMP with other theoretical perspectives in addressing themes such as supply chain management, entrepreneurship and innovation management. We conclude with a proposed agenda for further research, which provides extensive suggestions for underexplored empirical and conceptual themes.

    Developing a coevolutionary account of innovation ecosystems2021Inngår i: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 98, s. 59-68Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Whilst research in innovation ecosystems has focused on the connectivity, interdependence, and coevolution of actors, technologies, and institutions, there has been a gap in the study of these relationships between actors, with little explanation given on how mutually interdependent parties adapt. In this paper, we draw further on the ecological metaphor to present a view of innovation ecosystems as complex adaptive systems, where patterns of change emerge from microlevel coevolutionary interactions between actors. Drawing on this view, we explore related implications for our understanding of ecosystem boundaries, coevolutionary rules of interaction, and how ecosystems are energized through innovation. Specifically, we contribute to the literature by developing a novel account of innovation ecosystems where actors are bound together through changing modes of coevolution. Drawing on this account, we explore key theoretical and practical implications for our understanding of ecosystem actors, rules of interaction, and the wider innovation ecosystem. We conclude that innovation both maintains and drives change within the innovation ecosystem, by altering the microlevel rules of interaction and coevolutionary relationships between actors.

    Foresighting network dynamics: A Delphi-based Scenario Analysis2023Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the future of Sweden's electric utility network and its transition towards sustainability and resilience by combining traditional scenario analysis with foresighting, an anticipatory, non-predictive approach. The research focuses on potential disruptive innovations and changes within the industry, such as increased electrification, electromobility, and advances in grid infrastructure, using a Delphi study. This approach involves gathering expert opinions from various stakeholders, including industry, academia, and government experts, to anticipate multiple future scenarios and better prepare for potential challenges and opportunities. The interconnected nature of the electric utility network and the relationships between various actors play a critical role in shaping the industry's future. Foresighting allows stakeholders to anticipate and prepare for disruptive changes, such as the increasing role of prosumers, local microgrids, and novel value propositions. By employing the Delphi methodology, the study systematically gathers and synthesizes expert insights, offering a comprehensive understanding of the electric utility network's future development. The findings highlight the importance of improving end-customer relationships and enabling the use of prosumer products and services. Furthermore, the study emphasizes the need to address existing challenges within the Swedish power grid and increase transmission capacity to support the introduction of new technologies and a more efficient and sustainable energy system. By integrating the Industrial Marketing and Purchasing (IMP) network perspective, the study demonstrates that foresighting is more effective in accounting for exceptional events and non-linear growth patterns in the electric utility market. The results also provide insights into the emergence of new business models and the role of emerging technologies, such as energy storage, in shaping the future of the electric utility network.

    Overcoming the business model transformation dilemma: Exploring market shaping and stabilizing strategies in incumbent firms2021Inngår i: Journal of business & industrial marketing, ISSN 0885-8624, E-ISSN 2052-1189, Vol. 36, nr 13, s. 66-77Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to extend the knowledge on business model transformation (BMT) by developing an integrative framework for BMT dilemmas, including strategies for shaping and stabilizing market structures.

    Design/methodology/approach: The study uses a case-based approach, with data from the Swedish electric utility industry.

    Findings: The findings uncover practices related to both shaping and stabilizing market structure. The study contributes with insights for firms to overcome the BMT dilemma. Shaping strategies involve disruptive innovations while stabilizing strategies concerns incremental improvements in existing structures; by balancing these efforts, firms can find ways toward successful BMT.

    Originality/value: With a focus on incumbent firms and the balancing act of BMT in a network, the study covers areas that have scarcely been addressed in the existing literature. Even though most business model literature has focused on shaping consumer markets, the need to consider BMT as a dual-directional process in an industrial context is emphasized in this study.

    Renewing the mix of marketing channels: an evolutionary oriented approach2008Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses how mixes of marketing channels are renewed by combining a resource-based view and an evolutionary oriented approach. Mainstream research on marketing channels is mostly normative. However, in this paper businesses’ mixes of marketing channels is seen as unique combinations of resources. It is here questioned whether there in order to re-combine these resources in new ways is just one proper end, as suggested in traditional literature. The emphasis on marketing channels as path-dependent entities that, based on knowledge and experience, use the available resources to take action can be traced back to key themes in Thorstein Veblen’s and Edith Penrose’s writings.

    From flirting with Darwin to implementing an evolutionary ontology: towards an evolutionary theory of multichannels2009Inngår i: Marketing and entrepreneurship / [ed] A. Kocak, T. Abimbola, A. Özer, L. Watkins-Mathys, Ankara: Siyasal Yayın Dağıtım , 2009, s. 1053-1063Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past 111 years since Thorstein Veblen (1898) introduced his proposal for evolutionary theories in social science influences from evolutionary theory have been used in marketing from time to time. In a couple of very recent articles in marketing there has been a more explicit use of Darwinian ideas. In this paper, however, reasoning is taken one next step further by introducing not only a theory or a perspective that draws inspiration from evolutionary ideas but actually is evolutionary on the ontological level in the original Darwinian sense that it builds on the three basic evolutionary elements of retention, variation and selection. Thus, the aim of this paper is to show the importance of going from merely flirting with Darwinian ideas by using biology analogies and metaphors to developing a truly evolutionary meta-theory in order to more firmly integrate and create structure in the rather fussy bundle of ideas that in different parts contributes to an evolutionary model of explanation. In this paper we use the evolving relationships in multichannel settings as one illustration to start such a debate.

    Home field advantage: examining incumbency reorientation dynamics in low-carbon transitions2024Inngår i: Environmental Innovation and Societal Transitions, ISSN 2210-4224, E-ISSN 2210-4232, Vol. 50, artikkel-id 100802Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent work has offered a more nuanced view of incumbent actors' roles in transitions, yet a comprehensive understanding of how reorientation activities and subsequent interaction patterns among different incumbent actor types shape the direction of system reconfigurations remains underexplored. This paper proposes a framework for empirically assessing actors' relational dynamics in response to low-carbon transitions and conceptualises actor interaction types and the nature of their interaction. Through a case study of the low-carbon transition of road freight transport in Sweden, we examine how reorientation dynamics, e.g., coalitions, competition, and contestations, can facilitate and hinder system reconfigurations by creating regime tensions. Our study highlights that incumbency reorientations are multi-dimensional, with actor involvement and strategies varying, leading to divergent actor positions and role constellations as actors attempt to reconfigure the focal regime. Extending beyond the Swedish case, five avenues for future research are outlined.

    Quality management systems as indicators for stability and change in customer-supplier relationships2018Inngår i: The IMP Journal, ISSN 2059-1403, E-ISSN 0809-7259, Vol. 12, nr 3, s. 483-497Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This paper extends the discussion on stability and change through focus on specific relationship characteristics. Quality management systems prescribe established routines for supplier selection and monitoring, and may thereby designate the nature and longevity of customer-supplier relationships. The purpose of this paper is to describe and discuss the effects of quality management systems on stability and change in different forms of customer-supplier relationships.

    Design/methodology/approach: A number of illustrative examples based on participatory data and interviews help to capture different types of customer-supplier relationships (private/public; certified/non-certified) related to quality management systems.

    Findings: While certified customers in most sectors only need to prove that their suppliers have procedures in place, many customers equate this with requiring that their suppliers should be certified. The paper further shows that customers replace deeper understandings for their suppliers' procedures with the requirement that they be certified.

    Originality/value: The paper contributes to the existing literature through integrating quality management systems literature with the business network approach. For business network studies, the discussion on quality management systems as constricting regimes is interesting and provides practical insights to the business network studies as such quality management systems increase in importance and spread.

    Configurations of business strategy and marketing channels fore-commerce and traditional retail formats: A Qualitative ComparisonAnalysis (QCA) in sporting goods retailing2017Inngår i: Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services, ISSN 0969-6989, E-ISSN 1873-1384, Vol. 34, nr 1, s. 326-333Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article applies a configurational approach to study the fit between retail format, business strategy, and multi-channel setup. Its empirical material consists of five case studies, and a data set of 74 sporting goods retailers in Sweden. Our results show that a retailer can create strategic advantages when its multi-channel setup fits with its business strategy, and that retail format is important for explaining differences in growth and profit, the former being assigned to E-commerce and the latter to physical stores. Moreover, the study reveals that to some extent online channels also have positive performance implications for physical store retailers.

    On the promise and premises of a Darwinian theory in research on business relationships2013Inngår i: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 42, nr 3, s. 306-315Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of ‘Darwinism’ and generalizations of Darwin's idea outside the domain of its traditional biological application are advancing. In the field of industrial marketing, this has appeared mostly in the form of an interest in using biological analogies or isolated parts of a fuller Darwinian theory when theorizing about business relationships. In this article, we combine the general advancements of Darwinism in social science with the recent Darwinian-inspired theorizing on business relationships. The article reviews business relationship studies within marketing that explicitly uses Darwinism and results in the identification of six gaps and directions for future research. The most significant implication of the review is that investigations into the evolution of business relationships should account not only for the mechanism of selection but also for the mechanisms of variation and retention, in order to take proper account of the Darwinian explanatory paradigm. By suggesting ‘generalized Darwinism’ as an overriding framework, we argue that it is time to go from merely flirting with some Darwinian ideas to explicitly exploring the promise of using the Darwinian explanans in research on business relationships. We put forward suggestions on how central Darwinian mechanisms could be warranted and conceptualized in a theory explaining the evolution of business relationships.

    Evolutionary Branches in Business Research: A Review of Converging Themes2012Inngår i: To Standardize Or Not to Standardize?: Global Business Conference 2012 Proceedings / [ed] Goran Vlašić, Jurica Pavičić, Josef Langer, Zagreb: Innovation Institute , 2012, s. 126-137Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    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.

    From Record Stores to On-Demand Music Streaming: A Case Study on the Evolution of a Distribution System2014Inngår i: EURAM 2014 [Proceedings]: Waves and winds of strategic leadership for sustainable competitiveness, Victoria Australia: Common Ground Publishing, 2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper addresses a case study of the evolution of the music distribution system in Sweden from distribution of physical records, primarily retailed in specialist record stores, racks and department stores, to digital steaming on-demand via services such as Spotify and Youtube. The case study covers three distinct eras over thirty years, 1983-2013. The paper contributes to the discussion of whether evolution is a slow and gradual process of equal speed or a process where equilibrium-like situations are punctuated with sudden “shocks” of greater amplitude leading systems to exhibit more dramatically net evolutionary change in limited time frames. Being true to a Darwinian perspective, this study applies a multi-level systems view, and shows how “evolution of variation, selection, retention” can be complemented with a punctuated equilibrium model.

    On business relationships as Darwinian systems: an exploration into how Darwinian systems thinking can supportbusiness relationship research2013Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The demarcation between different traditions in contemporary research on business relationships reflects theoretical and methodological difficulties in the conceptualization of the nature of business relationships and how such relationships evolve. To tackle these problems, this thesis explores the fruitfulness of regarding business relationships as Darwinian systems, which accentuates kinship between Darwinism and systems thinking, and elaborates a treatment of business relationship transmutation as an iterative dynamic process that does not take the existence of business relationships – or the sequence of developmental stages – for granted.

    The thesis draws on findings in four essays as well as a stand-alone extended summary. These five parts complete the thesis. The discussion advances the idea that the tenets of systems thinking and of Generalized Darwinism are aligned and can provide a novel explanatory paradigm, although it takes marketing rigor to specify an emergent framework that conceptualizes the nature and evolution of business relationships. The concluding part elaborates the steps required for a more comprehensive Darwinian system theory of business relationships.

    A main contribution of the thesis is the exploration of an emergent theoretical composite – new to marketing – that integrates systems thinking, Generalized Darwinism and established business relationship conjectures. The thesis asserts the importance of configurational fit; the interaction between variation-creation and selective preservation to form a full Darwinian story; and the meaning of a logical distinction between manifested characteristics and the underlying instructions directing the former. Furthermore, the firm–relationship–market system hierarchy outlined highlights the business relationship as an emergent organizational form at a level above that of the individual firm, stressing the importance of its dual nature and as an evolving system alike, thus endorsing research to tackle the central theoretical and methodological difficulties of business relationships’ nature and evolution.

    Abstract [en]

    We theorize that invention-centric novel firms (ICNF) have the greatest chance to mate with an incumbent business partner when their invention fit with leadership style and the state of the market situation. Two different configurations are proposed both leading to high chance for ICNFs to succeed in business mating: When there is no current dominant design in the market, ICNFs will be more thriving in business mating if they have entrepreneurial leadership and a radical invention. Conversely, where there is a current dominant design present ICNFs are most prosperous in business mating if leadership is conservative and the invention incremental. These two equifinal ways to business mating express the value of holistically investigating configurations including both firm-specific and market-specific conditions rather than study one condition at a time. This claim advances us past the market versus firm debate and elaborates a theory whence greater understanding of business mating is possible.

    Åpne denne publikasjonen i ny fane eller vindu >>Asymmetrically realized absorptive capacity and relationship durability
    2012 (engelsk)Inngår i: Management Decision, ISSN 0025-1747, E-ISSN 1758-6070, Vol. 50, nr 1, s. 43-57Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Absorbing knowledge from partner firms is a key feature of marketing relationships. Recent publications have called for more dynamic and cognitive approaches in marketing relationship research. Also, established definitions of absorptive capacities have been questioned. This article aims to address propositions that take these overlooked and questioned elements into consideration, which can help explain conducts and dependencies, and affect relationship durability.

    Design/methodology/approach: The authors put forward four propositions by combining literature on interfirm relationships and managerial cognition with evolutionary ideas from marketing and management literature.

    Findings: The authors embrace a redefinition of potential absorptive capacity (the disposed capacity to absorb knowledge) and realized absorptive capacity (the absorption of knowledge actually performed). This distinction can, to some extent, be explained by the degree of cognitive attention given to the marketing relationship. Moreover, asymmetrically realized absorptive capacityvis-à-vis a partner substantially influences the dynamics of partners' conduct and dependency, which may vary the risk that the relationship will end.

    Practical implications: The propositions illustrate how a motivated partner that gives more attention to the relationship is more likely to absorb more knowledge than its counterpart, which can threaten the durability of a relationship. Thus, managers need to be able to understand possible long-term consequences of the partner's conduct in order to avoid losses of joint strategic resources and relational benefits.

    Originality/value: By advocating an evolutionary approach, an impetus for more dynamism in marketing relationship research is presented. This study also shows the importance of including the longitudinal dimension in analysis if one wants to understand change in – and durability of – marketing relationships.

    Prosumerism-imprinted business network change and its main beneficiary2020Inngår i: IMP Conference 2020, 2020Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Prosumerism is now attracting substantial attention in marketing and management journals, but there is no substantiated mapping of various forms of the phenomenon; not the least an understanding of how each form affects business networks, and who is the most favoredbeneficiary for that particular form of prosumerism is missing. To this end, this paper introduces the “prosumption map” based on a literature review and discusses how the so far scattered discussions can be bridged.

    Three Shades of Prosumer-to-Business Interaction in Business Networks2019Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Prosumerism has not yet been discussed and linked to effects on the business network. Facing different forms of prosumerism and with little attention to the embedded contexts, managers and researchers have limited guiding from the current literature on prosumerism. In this paper, we compare three case studies which represent different shades of prosumption and prosumer-to-business interaction in network-embedded contexts, and discuss implications for managers and research. The paper contributes to the business-to-business interaction approach; exploring and discussing effects and characteristics of prosumption within business networks, it provides means for understanding the connectedness of prosumer-to-business interaction in business networks.

    Business mating: when start-ups get it right2013Inngår i: Journal of Small Business and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 0827-6331, E-ISSN 2169-2610, Vol. 26, nr 5, s. 511-536Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The importance of forming business relationships is critical for the prosperity of startups; still, few studies have examined how conditions inside and around the start-uptogether lead to business mating – occurrence of a new business relationship. Toclarify the importance of proper fit among management style and invention featuresfor high mating chances, this paper tackles this need by taking a configurationalapproach. We use qualitative comparison analysis (QCA) to analyze case studies from16 invention-based start-ups seeking marketing partners. Findings indicate differentsolutions leading to high chances of forming business relationships. This studycontributes with a typology to the business relationship and start-up literature, as wellas discusses future directions to the emerging sub-domain of business mating research.
