Shaunn Mattingly, an associate professor in the Department of Management, had his paper, “Impact of Relatedness, Uncertainty, and Slack in Corporate Entrepreneurship Decisions,” accepted for publication in the journal Management Decision.

The paper evaluates the effect of opportunity relatedness and uncertainty on the decision of a corporate entrepreneur to pursue a venturing opportunity.  Data was gathered from 47 usable replies from corporate entrepreneurs; results showed that product relatedness, market relatedness, perceived certainty about expected outcomes, and slack resources all have a positive effect on the willingness of a corporate entrepreneur to pursue a new venture idea.
