Abstract [en]

In this discussion paper we explain the premises, inception and subsequent diffusion of co-evolutionary research in management studies, with a specific focus on a number of co-evolutionary accounts in the new Millennium. On this latest side, we consider 72 representative publications on the topic published since 2000 and scan them through three simple but meaningful research questions: 1) What is co-evolving? 2) What parties and causal relationships are involved? 3) And what processes? Our analysis not only reveals the tremendous flourishing (and still constant growing) of areas of investigation which, in various senses, are, to date, labelled as co-evolutionary; it also reveals increasing heterogeneity in theoretically defining what is co-evolving and what parties are involved. Furthermore, while conceptual works and (multiple) longitudinal case studies largely prevail among the analysed publications, substantive paucity seems to prevail in explicating what processes most vividly underpin co-evolution in management research.
