The evolutionary theory of the firm: Routines, complexity and change

Werner Hölzl ()

Working Papers from Vienna University of Economics and Business Research Group: Growth and Employment in Europe: Sustainability and Competitiveness

Abstract: This paper provides an overview on the evolutionary theory of the firm. The specific feature of the evolutionary approach is that it explains the adaptive behaviors of firms through the tension between innovation and selection. It is suggested that the evolutionary theory can provide a useful basis for a theory of the firm which is concerned with change over time and development.
