A Case Study of the John Lewis Partnership: A non-U.S. Firm that Practices Shared Entrepreneurship
Description:
In the last 10 years, a number of interrelated issues have come to the forefront. They include economic inequality and the reduction in the middle class (Freeman, 2012). These issues extend across borders (e.g., Mathieu, 2015; McDonnell, Macknight & Donnelly, 2012, Philips, 2015). One way to address these issues is through employee-owned enterprises that have high involvement cultures, which is also referred to as shared entrepreneurship. When shared entrepreneurship is investigated across borders, multiple forms can be found (Mathieu, 2015; McDonnell, Macknight & Donnelly, 2012). By studying highly successful ones in different countries/cultures the expectation is that lessons might be learned that can be adapted and applied in other countries. The John Lewis Partnership has been identified as one of the most remarkable European companies that practice employee share ownership (Mathieu, 2015). In addition, it practices all four components of shared entrepreneurship identified by Shipper et al. (2014) – shared ownership, shared leadership, shared collaboration, and freedom (Cox, 2010).
