Evolutionary economics, organisational evolution, and behavioural approach: in search of commonalities

Katarzyna Piórkowska , Ewa Stańczyk-Hugiet

Abstract

The overarching aim of the paper is to find the commonalities amongst evolutionary economics, organisational evolution, and behavioural approach and more specifically to conceptually clarify the extent to which the driving forces of organisational change can be explained by those fields. The aim has been realised through extensive literature studies and deductive referring. The key findings are as follows: 1) the separation of micro (individual) level from macro (organisational) level of analysing organisational behaviour requires a call for an integrative theory taking into account routine and non-routine organisational behaviour as the potential tool enabling an organisational change; 2) the behavioural theory of the firm seems to be well positioned to integrate constructs across levels as well as to integrate the phenomena inquired in evolutionary economics and organisational evolution fields since it stems from analysing individual decision-making along with process explanations for economically important firm decisions
