[en] In this presentation, we review some of the diverse analytical strategies used to advance relational thinking in studies of management, organization and entrepreneurship. As well as reviewing the different research problems that various relational perspectives address, consideration is given to whether it is possible to distinguish some defining characteristics of relational thinking. Furthermore, the presentation examines whether relational thinking can be extended more fully into entrepreneurship inquiry to provide a stronger theoretical foundation for understanding action-contexts than is currently offered by perspectives privileging opportunity development, action-interaction, artificial science or effectuation.
