Managing Time as a Resource and Managing Resources over Time in Entrepreneurial Firms.
For many entrepreneurial firms "time" is considered to be their most constrained and critical resource, and the ability to compete on the basis of speed is essential since a competitive advantage is conferred to first movers and fast movers. This workshop aims to engage researchers in discussions which will expand the research agenda regarding the management of time as a resource and the management of resources over time in entrepreneurial firms. The PDW will bring together scholars from the divergent yet complementary divisions of OM and ENT. Research questions of interest to entrepreneurship scholars involve the actors, actions, "resources", and outcomes associated with the entrepreneurial process. On the other hand, research questions of interest to operations management scholars focus on the efficient and effective conversion of a firm's "resources" into goods and services to maximize the profit of the firm. In that sense, both ENT & OM scholars have a shared interest in studying issues related to resource management. In this session we will explore the impact of temporal dynamics and the role of time in the management of resources in entrepreneurial firms. Presenters will include leading entrepreneurship scholars, leading operations management scholars, editors of entrepreneurship journals and editors of operations management journals. • Organizer: Jennifer Bailey, Babson College• Organizer: Mohan V Tatikonda, Indiana U. - Kelley School of Business• Organizer: Moren Levesque, York U.• Organizer: Sinan Erzurumlu, Babson College• Presenter: Nitin Joglekar, Boston U.• Presenter: David G.
