The behavioral theory of “entrepreneurial bricolage” attempts to understand what entrepreneurs do when faced with resource constraints. Prior research suggests that bricolage behaviors enable firms to “make do” through recombining existing resources and may assist in the development of firms that are better able to manage market uncertainties, survive and perhaps even flourish despite resource constraints. Using a new survey measure we further theorize and test the moderating effects of firm strategic change and innovativeness on bricolage and firm performance. Our findings suggest that changes in core elements of the business and degree of innovation reduce the positive effects of bricolage in young firm performance.
