Luke, Belinda G., Kearins, Kate, & Verreynne, Martie-Louise (2011) Developing a conceptual framework of strategic entrepreneurship. International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour & Research, 17(3), pp. 314-337.
Purpose: This paper aims to examine the integration of entrepreneurship and strategy to develop a conceptual framework of strategic entrepreneurship. The framework is developed through an analysis of theory and refined through an examination of practice.
Design/methodology/approach: This framework is considered in the context of potentially entrepreneurial and strategic activity undertaken by 12 of the 17 state-owned enterprises (SOEs) operating in New Zealand in 2006-2007. Based on a review of documents, observation, and interviews with SOE executives, cases of 12 SOE activities were analysed to compare and contrast strategic entrepreneurship in practice.
Findings: The findings reveal distinct elements within the four activities classified as strategic entrepreneurship, activities, such as leveraging from core skills and resources from a strategic perspective, and innovation from an entrepreneurial perspective.
Originality/value: This study is one of the first to examine the nature of strategic entrepreneurship in practice and the associated financial returns.
