Jennifer Franczak Examines the Relationship Between Polychronicity and Venture Performance in the Journal of Business Research
Pepperdine Graziadio faculty member, Jennifer Franczak, along with Michael A. Gyensare, Stephen E. Lanivich, Samuel Adomako, and Irene Chu introduced a moderated mediation model dissecting the intricate connection between polychronicity and venture performance in the Journal of Business Research.
The group argues that the positive association between polychronicity and venture performance is mediated by entrepreneurial orientation (EO). Tested using time-lagged data from 249 ventures in Vietnam, the study employs sophisticated structural equation modeling, with results conclusively demonstrating that EO indeed acts as a mediator in the relationship between polychronicity and venture performance.
Notably, the research brings to light a crucial nuance—the interplay between polychronicity and EO is moderated by firm age, with a notably stronger interaction effect observed in younger firms compared to their older counterparts.
This research not only advances our theoretical understanding but also provides empirical support for the intricate dynamics surrounding the polychronicity-venture performance relationship, emphasizing the profound impact of founders' polychronic proclivities on the success trajectory of ventures.
