Innovation in Large Corporations: A Development of the Rudimentary Theory of Effectuation.


Motivated by the rudimentary theory of effectuation, this theoretical study was conducted in order to develop the theory to encompass effectual innovation in large corporations, and to include the aspect of tacit knowledge and time. We present a theoretical socio dynamic model focusing on the relationship between the use of effectual strategies and the evolution of the value of opportunities over time. We suggest that effectuation processes are valuable for innovation in large corporations, especially in the early stages of the opportunity growth, and that tacit knowledge and time can be important aspects of the effectuation strategies.
