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.
