A Process Approach to Corporate Coherence

We deal with the notion of ‘corporate coherence‘, lately made notable by Teece, Rumelt, Dosi and Winter (1994). We debate that the literature is baffled on the meaning of the notion (and similar notions) in numerous dimensions. Making use of information from market-process theories, we put forward a dynamic understanding of corporate coherence as relating to the corporate capacity to strike a favorable equilibrium between the production and the exploitation of latest knowledge. This point is elaborated drawing on Austrian, evolutionary and post- Marshallian economics.
