Katarzyna Piórkowska


Enterprises continuously make endeavours in achieving firm-environment adaptiveness as the response to changes, inter alia unforeseen ones. Adaptation phenomenon constitutes a multi-level construct that comprises individuals, teams and organizations as the whole as well as can be described in terms of performance, i.e. adaptive one. Hence, the aim of the paper is to contribute to the realm of research on organizational adaptation and to set a conceptual research proposal exploring and explaining the associations between individual (managerial) proactive orientation and organizational adaptive performance. It might be posited that organizational adaptive performance is associated with the managerial propensity to proactive behaviour. Individual managerial propensity to be proactive has been considered in terms of (1) proactive personality, (2) proactivity categories such as proactive work behaviour and proactive strategic behaviour as well as (3) proactive performance. The method that has been used is extensive literature review. The overarching key finding is that individual propensity to proactive behaviour implies respectively a higher level of individual and organizational adaptive performance. Specifically, it has been stated that managerial adaptive performance mediates the relationship between managerial propensity to be proactive and organizational adaptive performance.
