"The basic propositions Edith Penrose put forth in her book The Theory of the Growth of the Firm were provocative and path breaking...How good it is to have her book, long out of print, available again. Her insights, her arguments, still read fresh and right, and finally will get the attention that they warrant."--Richard R. Nelson, Columbia University"Edith Penrose's pioneering work on the resource-based approach to the firm's growth has greatly inspired me and hundreds of other scholars...As we enter the "knowledge society," this reissue of her classic work with its new foreword is well-timed and welcome."--Ikujiro Nonaka, HitotsubashiUniversityReseña del editor:
This 'goldmine of concepts for understanding business and industrial organization' was originally published in 1959, but has been an influence in business schools ever since. The author combines rigorous theory with close observation of the real business world, and writes simply but with an original approach. Her focus on teams and organizational knowledge underlines contemporary discussion of 'organizational competences' and she has written a new introduction which assesses the book's impact and describes the subsequent development of her own ideas.
