Bio of Edith Penrose

Edith (Elura Tilton) Penrose (1914–1996) was a USA-born British citizen who spent significant time of her academic career in Europe, first at the London School of Economics and later becoming the first women faculty in INSEAD who also served as Dean for Faculty. She published several articles and books, some of which became seminal in the management field, such as her 1952 article challenging the biological or evolutionary analogy of the firm and her book titled ‘The Theory of the Growth of the Firm’ first published in the 1959. In that book, Penrose challenged the then dominant (economics’) view of the optimal size of the firm: firms rather continue to grow because their managers keep identifying productive opportunities, that is, possibilities of obtaining new services from existing resources to address a market need. That is why Penrose is considered the forerunner of the resource-based view of the firm.

EURAM Book of the Year 2019 Award

Dear Colleagues,

A nomination for a book can be made either by a Strategic Interest Group (SIG), or by any individual, including self-nominations online. There is no formal nomination form, but the nomination document should be no longer than 600 words (plus a short cover letter).
 
Upon submission, you may upload an e-book. EURAM head office will contact you prior to review to let you know where to send three copies of your book.
 
At least one of the authors of the book should be a current member of EURAM in order to be nominated for the Award (please contact luisa.jaffe@euram.academy for queries about membership status).
 
Nominations should be submitted online https://www.xcdsystem.com/euram/abstract/index.cfm?ID=VfJIJe0 by 31 January 2020. A designated committee will choose the winner, based on the criteria of scholarly impact – rigor and relevance of the book – with consideration for the ‘European’ element of the book. 
 
The winner(s) will be announced at the EURAM Conference in Dublin in December 2020.
