Part of the International Series in Advanced Management Studies book series (ISAMS)


This chapter introduces a multilevel analysis of BMI that flows from the thematic and ontological analyses of the 156 papers included in the systematic literature review. Five different levels of analysis emerged from the studies: individual (e.g., entrepreneurs and employees); team (e.g., top management); firm (e.g. companies and organizations), network (e.g., partnerships and consortia), and the firm’s institutional environment (e.g., industry, market, sector, or society). These levels of analysis are discussed in order to improve our understanding of BMI and to stimulate future research. The tables and the multilevel issues examined in this chapter reveal that most existing knowledge on BMI is concentrated on a single level of analysis at a time, moreover the majority of the papers use the firm as the level of investigation. Accordingly, this chapter contributes to the development of the BMI literature, highlighting for each level of analysis, the related research gaps, and offering specific suggestions—a road map for future research—to address each of these knowledge gaps.
