Abstract

Using the concept of institutional entrepreneurship, the present paper examines how change agents interact with firms to shape their existing practices to cope with demographic change in their local economies. Demographic challenges are considered to lead to fundamental market transformations, generating considerable uncertainty, notably for small and locally embedded firms. Based upon a case study from local economies in Germany that face demographic challenges, the paper demonstrates how such institutional entrepreneurs work to influence firms, steering the renewal of their existing practices towards adaptation to market change. The study first highlights the inspiration, vision, and power of such agents to promote and introduce new patterns of behavior and then elaborates how institutional entrepreneurship unfolds in a context where uncertainty and lack of consciousness for long-term market changes are prevalent among particularly small firms that are locally embedded in economies facing such change.
