Apostles, Authorities, Artisans, and Altruists: Professional Service Entrepreneurs and their Understanding of Entrepreneurship
We utilize role identity theory to examine how professional service entrepreneurs understand and apprehend entrepreneurship within their professional practice firms. Utilizing qualitative interviews from a sample of physicians who own their own practices, we develop a typology of four separate combinations of entrepreneurial and professional role identity centrality. This typology assists in understanding various understandings professional service entrepreneurs have of their role identity configurations, the enactment of their role identities, and their understanding of meaningful performance objectives.
