Organizing entrepreneurial judgment: a must-read bookPosted: December 4, 2011
O&M’s Nicolai Foss and Peter Klein are publishing a book (forthcoming in early 2012) Organizing Entrepreneurial Judgment: A New Approach to the Firm, Cambridge University Press. Their book starts with the premise that “the theory of entrepreneurship and the theory of the firm should be treated together.” I agree.
So, if you want to read up on the latest and greatest at the nexus of entrepreneurship, organizations and markets – then this is definitely the book for you.
Here is the table of contents.
1. The need for an entrepreneurial theory of the firm
2. What is entrepreneurship?
3. Entrepreneurship: from opportunity discovery to judgment
4. What is judgment?
5. From shmoo to heterogeneous capital
6. Entrepreneurship and the economic theory of the firm
7. Entrepreneurship and the nature and boundaries of the firm
8. Internal organization: original and derived judgment
9. Concluding discussion
I haven’t quite read the whole book, yet, but am working through it. So more posts to come.
