Biography

In his research, Eric Gedajlovic seeks better explanations of strategic and entrepreneurial processes by considering the institutional, historical and organizational contexts in which they are embedded. In this way, he strives to contribute to the strategy, entrepreneurship and family business literatures by bringing into the foreground, contextual factors that are often ignored, underspecified or treated as limitations or boundary conditions. In his view, context is what surrounds strategic and entrepreneurial behaviour and gives it meaning. As a consequence, an appreciation of context leads to more finely grained theoretical accounts and facilitates the identification of potentially insightful contingencies that moderate and offer better explanations of complex organizational phenomena.

Through his research, Eric has collaborated with more than 30 different scholars based in North America, Europe and Asia. His research has been published in many top ranked Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship journals including Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Management Studies, Organization Science, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Business Venturing, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice and Organization Studies.

Eric's research is widely cited by scholars working in the fields of strategy, organizational theory, entrepreneurship, international business, family business as well as industrial economics and sociology and has been described in graduate and undergraduate level text books in the fields of Strategic Management and Industrial economics.
