Interdependencies of Activity Systems and Strategic Renewal

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract There are two opposing perspectives on the relationship between
interdependency in activity systems and the likelihood of radical strategic
renewal. Some scholars argue that interdependency increases inertia
and thus inhibits radical deviation from the current state. Other scholars
argue that rich levels of interdependency are necessary to undergo
radical strategic renewal at all. In this paper, we claim that both strands
of research have looked at different sub-dimensions of interdependency
and therefore derive at different conclusions. Hence, by introducing
multiple dimensions of interdependency, we show that the likelihood of
radical strategic renewal is influenced by the value of three structural and
two rule-based dimensions of interdependency.
