A meta-ethnography on HEIs’ transformation into more entrepreneurial institutions: Towards an action-framework proposition

The THA German Chapter published a new article presenting a systematic literature review comprised of a meta-ethnography on the transformation journey of 36 HEIs across 18 countries. The outcome is a four-stage iterative action-framework proposition, suggesting that exogenous and endogenous forces constantly influence HEIs which, in response, ignite experiments, requiring sensitization to be consolidated and later institutionalized, in an endless, long and rather slow process. The article contributes to theory by explaining the metalevel of HEIs’ entrepreneurial pathway process and to practice by providing policymakers and decision makers in HEIs with an analytical framework.

The chapter work is available open access on https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/0950422220922677
