Why is it important?

The article highlights that decisions based on rules established with past experience are unsuitable in contexts characterized by a multiplicity of foreign institutional forces. The joint interaction of these forces on the firm induces corporate entrepreneurs to respond to such pressures under a new, more flexible, and experimental approach


The results indicate that institutional multiplicity generates a kind of calibration between these decision-making approaches, contributing to innovation processes in the company.
