Organizations and the Theory of the Firm Chapter uri icon



  • Theories of the firm are the primary vehicles by which scholars answer questions about firms' existence, internal operations, modes of securing competitive advantage, and location of boundaries. Starting in economics and moving into management, this entry reviews dominant governance and competence approaches to the theory of the firm, exploring the approaches' implications for theorizing organizations. It concludes by engaging with two alternatives that break with the visions of both the firm and aim of theory in this body of thinking.
