Abstract:The goal of this study is to identify the limiting effects of path dependence on organizational change through environmental influences. Whereby, the focus of the environmental influences within the study is on two different industries, namely the automotive- and flat-glass & glazing industry. Results of this study describe the limiting effects of path dependence on organizational change through environmental influences. Besides the limiting effects, also the process of how to identify path dependence within SME’s is comprehensively described. As a result, the enterprise under investigation could implement changes towards their business plan to decrease or prevent the limiting effects of these dependencies. Next to this, the identified path dependencies could also occur for similar enterprises, therefore the study could identify possible path dependencies for the vehicle body building industry.
