We are pleased to announce that the article "With(Out) a Little Help From My Friends? Reconciling Incongruous Findings on Stakeholder Management, Innovation, and Firm Performance" (Link for full access) co-authored by Naomi Haefner and Maximilian Palmié with Petteri Leppänen (Imperial College London) was accepted for publication in Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice. The study formulates theory on how stakeholder management and innovation work (in)effectively together. Distinguishing between internal and external stakeholders and exploitative and exploratory innovation, the authors elaborate that managing for stakeholders and innovation can be both substitutes and complements depending on a set of contingencies.
