Entrepreneurial orientation (EO), corporate entrepreneurship (CE) and their connections with corporate performance attract more attention during last decades. Researchers claimed that the EO-performance relationship is very complicated. Future studies should incorporate moderator and mediator factors in their models to precisely explain that complexity. In this paper we have chosen the most common environmental characteristics include environmental dynamism and environmental hostility to investigate their moderation effects.
In this study EO refers to tendency of firms to have entrepreneurial activities while CE points out to the their actual entrepreneurial activities. Previous studies mentioned EO as the basis and necessary condition of CE. Therefore, we have supposed a mediation role for CE in EO-performance relationship. By incorporating this mediation model with environmental moderators, the final moderated mediation model of EO-CEperformance and environmental characteristics is designed.
Hierarchical multiple regression and Baron and Kenny (1986)’s techniques are respectively applied to testify the moderating and mediating effects.
