Abstract

A partire dalla considerazione che il cambiamento strategico rappresenta una tema centrale negli studi di management e strategia, lo studio si propone di investigare le decisioni strategiche delle imprese in contesti caratterizzati da elevati livelli di dinamismo. Inoltre, l’introduzione in letteratura della variabile che misura l’esperienza digitale del board, intesa come rapporto tra membri con esperienza professionale in ambiti digital-related e il totale dei componenti del board, consente di valutare l’impatto sul metodo (fusioni e acquisizioni, alleanze strategiche e joint venture) e sull’ampiezza (diversificazione e internazionalizzazione) del cambiamento strategico. I risultati dimostrano l’associazione non solo tra maggiore dinamismo ambientale e cambiamento esperienza digitale del board e lo stesso cambiamento strategico d’impresa. Le implicazioni teoriche e pratiche consentono di apprezzare il coinvolgimento del board non solo nel controllo, ma anche nella direzione strategica dell’impresa, e di comprendere come le imprese decidano di orchestrare il proprio set di capacità dinamiche per allinearsi ai cambiamenti esterni.
