Abstract

We examine a neglected spectrum of activities, where imitation and innovation blend together. We refer to these firm activities as imutation, a mixture of imitation and mutation (transformation). The main purpose is to define and distinguish imutation from imitation and offer a framework revealing key conditions and outcomes of imutation.
