Hybrid Typologies and Innovation Outcomes
Hybrid organisations, which embody conflicting logics in the core of their activities, are widely spread in our modern societies. Because they combine different fields of knowledge, hybrids may be able to solve market and societal problems in unconventional and innovative ways. Therefore, researchers have been extensively using hybrids as a setting to study organisational responses to conflicting institutional logics, and organisational innovation. This work speaks to this growing, but still small line of inquiry, focusing on how different hybrid configurations may link to innovation outcomes in terms of types and levels. The aim of this proposal is twofold: establish empirically a typology for hybrid configurations; and describe how hybrid configurations influence innovation outcomes.
