Titel: Entrepreneurial agency-in-progress
A performative approach to studying processes of systemic innovation in the energy sector
Forfatter: Brenneche, Nicolaj Tofte
Resume: The ongoing efforts to transform energy systems towards becoming environmentally sustainable provide a rich empirical source for cases of organizational creativity in the form of collective entrepreneurship, co-creation and collaborative innovation. In this paper, I will briefly introduce the challenge of organizing knowledge production in context of open-ended energy system transitions and argue, on the ground of a critical reading of established innovation management research, that a processual approach is needed in order to analyze how system transition processes are pursued through an entrepreneurial form of collective agency-in-progress through e.g. partnership arrangements. I will put particular emphasis on presenting a methodology for doing innovation process research performatively which I have developed during the course of my ph.d. research where I have participated in a European strategic partnership since 2009. Considering this partnership as a case of relational entrepreneurship within the organization of energy research, the methodological discussion puts focus on how to study this performatively – that is, how to not only theorize and study relational entrepreneurship as a practice of others, but to perform relational entrepreneurship through a research practice. The paper comprise an introduction and then a excerpt from my methodology chapter from my ph.d. thesis which I am close to finalizing.
