RESEARCH INTERESTS and TOP TEN PUBLICATIONS
Norris Krueger, PhD
I am passionate about understanding how we learn to think like entrepreneurs and that quest has taken me deeper and deeper, even to learning more about neuroscience. At the same time, my work has taken me the opposite way - how do we use that knowledge to grow entrepreneurial communities and entrepreneurial people.
It has also been gratifying to see that cognitive science applied to entrepreneurship also open doors to better understanding important domains such as social & sustainable entrepreneurship and technology commercialization.
The work always get more and more intellectually challenging but it has afforded me the opportunities to meet and work with some of the greatest minds, young and old, in our field. It certainly has been an honor to help advance the field and especially younger scholars, but I have gained far more. Here following are my ten favorite research publications which should give you a sense of the breadth and depth of my research interests and achievements. A separate document contains a list of links to download the documents.
Norris Krueger, PhD
Most cited author in entrepreneurial intentions. Google Scholar calculates #2 most cites for social entrepreneurship and #26 for entrepreneurship [9585 unique cites; http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=5sTGhBsAAAAJ&hl=en]. I am continuing to study intentions but now looking at dynamic models and the deep beliefs/assumptions that anchor intent. Tying intentions research to deeper phenomena from cognitive science allows entrepreneurship scholars to contribute to intentions research beyond entrepreneurship.

Strong interest area today with great practical applicability as well as big opportunities to apply cognitive science (even neuroscience). Only one other scholar has been applying dcognitive evelopmental psychology to entrepreneurial learning but this approach has immense potential.

The intentions research is situated in broader issues from cognitive science. I have written the entrepreneurial cognition chapter for the Acs & Audretsch international handbook for research in both editions. My dissertation actually started here with an experimental study of self-efficacy.

SOCIAL & SUSTAINABLE ENTREPRENEURSHIP
A powerful way to look at entrepreneurial cognition is to focus on more specific domains, especially those of great salience (and great practical value). Social and sustainable entrepreneurship has long been a passion for me. I edited the first two special journal issues on environmental entrepreneurship, introduced Ashoka [and Bill Drayton himself] to the Academy of Management and continue to apply cutting-edge cognitive science to this domain.

Most recent enthusiasm has been work in advancing technology commercialization. The University of Utah white paper/case study has been downloaded over 1000 times [http://bit.ly/buI3uU]. Current work looks at the impact of the entrepreneurial mindset and the entrepreneurial ecosystem (innovation system) and changes through the commercialization process.
The Brannback, et al. was the first opportunity for me to propose a model that centers on liaison-
animateurs. Combining interests in cognition and technology commercialization, I have initiated a project with Twente to look at the co-evolution of entrepreneurs and their ventures, resulting in the well-received Babson 2012 paper below.

As a field, we have identified and characterized an “entrepreneurial orientation” that reflects an entrepreneurial “mindset” or strategic vision at the firm level. We tend to presume the existence of a corresponding entrepreneurial orientation at the individual-level; witness the constant calls to emphasize growing the “entrepreneurial mindset” in training and in communities. Seeking this personal EO offers us an opportunity to revisit some important issues from the earlier days of entrepreneurship and strategy research such as strategic vision and strategic intent. It also allows us to address a contentious question for today, that of conceptualizing and measuring the “entrepreneurial mindset.”
For this project, we are seeking interested faculty or students to participate in conducting survey in various countries. For more details, please email GlobalBusinessResearch@phoenix.edu.
