Validity of Effectuation in Entrepreneurship


To understand the validity of effectuation as a model for entrepreneurship.

Early Findings

The majority of data uncovered within the discovery phase is theoretical versus practical, academic and/or scholarly based, and in many instances blocked behind paywalls and therefore limited within the public domain.

Articles and Studies


As much of what was found during the discovery phase was academic research looking at the concept or theory of effectuation as it applies to entrepreneurs. It is suggested that a literature review be conducted to provide an overview of articles with highlights to any relevant statistics found within each published paper. Several of these papers were found to be paywalled on initial review, though it is anticipated that at least five studies and/or papers can be located to provide this review.
