Abstract

Imprinting theory suggests that founding conditions are ‘stamped’ on organizations,and these imprinted routines often resist change. In contrast, strategic choice theory suggeststhat the firm can overcome organizational inertia and deliberately choose its future. Boththeories offer dramatically different explanations behind an organization’s capacity for change.IPO firms provide a unique context for exploring how imprinting forces interact with strategicchoice factors to address organizational capacity for change as a firm moves from private topublic firm status. Juxtaposing imprinting and strategic choice perspectives, we employ fuzzyset analysis to examine the multi-level determinants of organizational capacity for change.Our cross-national data reveal three effective configurations of organizational capacity forchange within IPOs, and two ineffective configurations. Our results suggest that theantecedents of organizational capacity for change in entrepreneurial threshold firms are non-linear, interdependent, and equifinal.
