Abstract

This study explores how career experiences shape entrepreneurs' preferences for causal and effectual decision logics. Through a grounded theory approach, based on verbal protocols and interviews, we distinguish four career profiles. Each profile represents different emphases on control and prediction and varying degrees to which entrepreneurs prefer effectuation and causation.
