Abstract

The theory of path dependence continues to attract great interest in business, strategic and organization studies. An increasing number of scholars have started to use the theory for studying organizational inertia and fixed transaction patterns. The conference organized by the path dependency research center of the Freie Universität Berlin aims at providing a platform for researchers interested in analyzing path phenomena from different perspectives. The discussions are expected to focus on both conceptual issues of building and extending path theories and empirical studies guided by path conceptions. Conceptual as well as empirical papers from different fields are welcome: organization theory, organizational behavior, strategic management, marketing, innovation and entrepreneurship. Beyond the field of business studies, we explicitly welcome contributions from economists, sociologists, historians and political scientists.
