Based on institutional theory and the dynamic capability view, this study delves into the relationship between a firm’s climate change adaptation (CCA) capability and its performance, with a focus on the mediating influence of business-to-business (B2B) marketing capability. The study poses two main research questions: RQ1: What role do institutional pressures play in fostering CCA capability among B2B firms in both developed and developing countries? RQ2: How does the CCA capability of B2B firms impact their performance? To validate the theoretical model developed, data is collected through surveys conducted in a developed country (Australia) and a developing country (South Africa). The study holds significance on two fronts: (a) being among the first to examine the influence of institutional pressures on CCA capability development, and (b) uncovering the mediating role of marketing capability in enhancing B2B firm performance through CCA capability. The study’s novel contribution lies in identifying pivotal elements for driving exceptional B2B firm performance amidst climate change, while employing institutional theory and the dynamic capability view to elucidate underlying mechanisms.

When time is of the essence and teams face unexpected contextual changes, they must adapt quickly, sometimes even in real time, that is, they may have to improvise. This paper adopts an inductive approach to explore how teams decide to engage in improvised adaptation, and what happens during those processes for improvisation to be successful. The study analyzes improvisation from the perspective of paradox theory and identifies six paradoxical tensions driven by these contexts: deployment, development, temporal, procedural, structural, and behavioral tensions. We propose a dynamic equilibrium model of team improvised adaptation that leads to team plasticity.

The concept of an ‘entrepreneurial ecosystem’ has become a major means for both theorizing and making policy decisions concerning entrepreneurship, innovation and economic development. The notion of an entrepreneurial ecosystem captures the way in which entrepreneurship is increasingly performed and undertaken via the innate interdependencies existing between the elements and components of what are essentially biotic communities (consisting of complex interactions between human agents and an array of tangible and intangible components). This book takes a multi-lensed view and perspective on the emergence of entrepreneurship within ecosystems in cities and regions, the manner in which these ecosystems evolve and operate, as well as their future development. This introductory chapter provides some initial theoretical background relating the nature of ecosystems in the context of entrepreneurship and urban and regional development before providing a summary of the book’s three parts: (1) The Emergence of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems; (2) The Evolution of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems; and (3) The Future of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems.

With improving environmental consciousness and the growing demand for valuable resources, waste recycling has become an important concern. This work studies the profit of recyclers and platforms with a degree of trust-building in the reverse logistics system considering the following scenarios: online recycling platform builds trust or not under centralized and decentralized models. The results show that trust-building can effectively make more revenue for the system of the online recycling platform with enhanced demand if the cost of the trust-building construction is relatively low. The revenue-sharing contract is more profitable than the cost-sharing contract but fails to achieve optimization in the integrated setting. We find a new decision support tool for optimal strategies under different decision-making models.

This cross-cultural study (individualistic vs. collectivistic culture) applies construal level theory, exploring the impact of cause familiarity on brand attitudes and how cause–brand fit mediates this link. The study also examines how perceived betrayal moderates the relationship between cause–brand fit and brand attitude. Data collection involved 455 participants from French and Turkish cultures via snowball sampling. Findings show cause familiarity significantly influences brand attitude, with attitude toward fit in a cause–brand alliance as a mediator. Perceived betrayal also moderates the cause–brand fit and brand attitude relationship, shedding light on the positive effects of aligning with a familiar cause on brand attitudes, emphasizing the crucial role of fit in such alliances.

Drawing on the Foucauldian technologies of the self, this study explores how individuals re-envision practices of wellbeing outside of traditional organizational contexts during extreme events. Based on a thematic analysis of 7,234 comments posted on the Yoga with Adriene YouTube channel in 2020, this study unpacks a technologically mediated practice of self-care, which we conceptualize as somametamnemata. Our findings illustrate three entangled aspects of somametamnemata relating to yoga, a form of bodywork: Caring about self through practicing yoga online; caring about self and others through sharing about yoga in written comments; and caring about self and others through responding to shared verbalizations of yoga. By situating the potentiality of individual wellbeing within ill-being, we shift debates and discussions of “corporate wellness” beyond organizational boundaries.

The aim of this study is to provide investors, policymakers and others with information on how greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and green innovation affect corporate financial performance. Although reporting by corporate venture capital (CVC) firms on GHG emissions as well as their green innovation has increased significantly, especially in the last two decades, little is known about how these two factors affect financial performance.

Shame is an emotional experience that occurs when you fail to meet the expectations of others and end up with a negative image of yourself that makes you perceive yourself to be inferior or weak to others. Shame does not only happen when we do something in front of others, but it can also happen when someone in our group does something that makes us look bad. Shame can arise for individual or collective actions.
