The symbolic aspects of corporate entrepreneurship: The case of a mature organization
This paper reports on a case study of autonomous strategic behavior in a mature, conservatively managed, low technology organization. The autonomous behavior studied is the firm's adoption of a high technology product offering. The paper conceptualizes the organizational change induced by the initiative as a paradigm shift. The study specifically addresses the change agent's symbolic actions in unfreezing, changing, and refreezing the organization's paradigm. The paper extends previous work on the political aspects of change agent behavior in the same organization.
