JMS Classic Articles
In the JMS Classic Article Series, we invite a new generation of scholars to reflect on some of the groundbreaking articles published in JMS over our 50 year history.
The latest set of Classic Articles re-evaluate Hugh Willmott's ground-breaking 1993 paper ‘Strength is ignorance; slavery is freedom: managing culture in modern organizations’.
Point Counterpoint Debates
Social Entrepreneurship as a Norm?
Is the act of entrepreneurship itself a social good? This simple and seemingly easy question goes to the heart of the debate of this issue's Point-Counterpoint articles but the answer appears not to be so straightforward. In their entry in this two article series, Zahra and Wright argue that scholars need to re-examine and redefine the social role of entrepreneurship around five pillars that argue for a balance of the financial, social, and environmental outcomes of all entrepreneurial activity. In conjunction, McMullen and Warnick argue that the criticism of ‘typical and classic’ entrepreneurship may have gone too far. The papers are available FREE in Volume 53, Issue 4.
