This study attempts to define the three constructs identified in the title and examine patterns of interaction among them. It begins by demonstrating that entrepreneurial orientation influences resource acquisition. It then puts forward a set of parameters to assess the degree to which factor identified as environmental dynamism affect an entrepreneurial orientation resource acquisition equation. The study finds that there are relationships between all three of the constructs, but in two propositions developed in the course of discussion it puts forward issues that may be clarified by future research, which from various angles could show how entrepreneurially oriented firms react differently from more established firms in terms of their acquisition of resources and interaction with environmental dynamism.
