dc.description.abstract Corporate entrepreneurship is deemed essential to uncover opportunities that shape the future strategic path and adapt the firm to environmental change (e.g., Covin and Miles, 1999; Wolcott and Lippitz, 2007). At the same time, rational central processes are important to execute strategic actions in a coordinated manner (e.g., Baum and Wally, 2003; Brews and Hunt, 1999; Goll and Rasheed, 1997). That is, the organization’s adaptive responses and dynamic capabilities are embedded in integrative structures that accommodate dispersed business initiatives. The dual concerns for integration and entrepreneurial behavior are reflected in the conjoint need for effective routines and exploratory search in adaptive systems (e.g., Pfeifer and Bongard, 2007; Sutton and Barto, 1998). It has also been expressed as a need to balance exploitation and exploration (March, 2001) and configure ambidextrous organizational forms (e.g., O’Reilly and Tushman, 2008; Tushman and O’Reilly, 2004). In strategy research, optimization and rejuvenation perspectives have variously been described as intended and emergent strategies (Mintzberg, 1978; Mintzberg and Waters, 1985), top‐down and bottom‐up strategies (Nonaka, 1987), induced and autonomous strategy processes (Burgelman, 2005; Burgelman and Grove, 1996, 2007), central planning and decentralized initiatives (Andersen, 2000, 2004, Andersen and Nielsen, 2009). Burgelman and Grove (2007) outline such a combined strategy process and observe how central direction and dispersed exploration can change over time influenced by strategic leadership. en_US
