Abstract: Organizational members consider past performance as well as expected future performance when making risky decisions. We seek to understand how these backward- and forward- looking tendencies together affect risk-taking by examining the role of "momentum" - systematic and sustained trajectories in performance over time. We posit that momentum shapes members' expectations of future performance through a sensemaking process and in turn regulates the focus of organizational attention between aspirations, survival, and slack. We tested and found support for our hypotheses in the context of 22,603 fourth down decisions made by the 32 National Football League teams during the 2000-05 regular season games.
