Internationalization and effectuation share a common problem space because they both include Knightian uncertainty ("it is impossible to calculate probabilities for future consequences"), goal ambiguity ("preferences are neither given nor well ordered"), and environmental isotropy ("it is not clear what elements of the environment to pay attention to and what to ignore") (Sarasvathy 2008, p.
