  • Ecosystem for the emergence of spin-offs from the family business

    • Pages: 290 - 311
      Abstract: Academia Revista Latinoamericana de Administración, Volume 30, Issue 3, Page 290-311, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to identify the minimum conditions for the formation of an ecosystem that favours the emergence of spin-offs whose parent company is a family business. Design/methodology/approach Three family companies that have experienced processes supporting the creation of new companies led by family members were used for this exploration. Findings The findings show that it is possible to form an ecosystem with five basic components from which other factors of a different kind are derived, and that would favour the minimum conditions for new companies to emerge from the family business. Originality/value Spin-off companies have received valuable recognition in recent years. The vast majority of research on spin-offs considers those arising under the protection of a private innovation centre, a corporation, or university. This research gives more breadth to this coverage, by studying the emergence of spin-offs that rely on the family business as the parent company. Objetivo Esta investigación tiene el objetivo de identificar las condiciones mínimas para la conformación de un ecosistema que favorezca el surgimiento de empresas Spin-Off a partir de la empresa familiar como empresa madre. Diseño/metodología/enfoque Para esta exploración se tomaron tres empresas familiares que han experimentado procesos de apoyo a la creación de nuevas empresas lideradas por los miembros de la familia. Hallazgos Los hallazgos muestran que es posible conformar un ecosistema con cinco componentes fundamentales a partir de los cuales se desprenden otros factores de diferente índole que propiciarían las condiciones mínimas para que emerjan nuevas empresas a partir de la empresa familiar. Originalidad/valor Las empresas Spin-Off han tomado un valioso reconocimiento en los últimos años. La gran mayoría de investigaciones sobre empresas spin-off se ocupan de aquellas que surgen bajo el amparo de un centro de innovación privado, una corporación o una universidad. Esta investigación da más amplitud a esta cobertura, al estudiar el surgimiento de spin-off que se apoyan en la empresa familiar como empresa madre.

  • Strategic orientation and strategies to manage organisational knowledge
           and creativity

    • Pages: 312 - 327
      Abstract: Academia Revista Latinoamericana de Administración, Volume 30, Issue 3, Page 312-327, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyse the direct effects of strategic orientation in innovation and competition on personalisation and codification type knowledge management (KM) strategies and their organisational creativity. Design/methodology/approach The authors counter-checked the hypothesis model with a sample of 169 companies in emerging markets that adopt technology: a country such as Colombia. To do so, the authors used structural equations with the least squares model. Findings The data indicate that both KM strategies positively influence creativity; however, personalisation has a greater effect. Additionally, SG for innovation has a positive effect on both KM strategies; however, for competition, KM only has an influence on codification. Originality/value The relation between KM strategies and creativity has been approached on a strictly theoretical level; therefore, this paper provides empirical evidence on the subject. It also establishes the direct effect that SG has on KM strategies, which have so far only been tangentially analysed. In so doing, it goes further than the limitations in the literature regarding analysis of the KM-creativity relationship, but it does not consider business strategy implications. Objetivo el artículo busca analizar los efectos directos de la orientación estratégica (OE) a la innovación y a la competencia, sobre las estrategias de gestión del conocimiento (GC), de personalización y codificación y, de estas últimas, sobre la creatividad organizacional. Metodología el modelo de hipótesis se contrastó en una muestra de 160 empresas situadas en un país emergente y tecnológicamente seguidor como Colombia. Para ello, se utilizaron ecuaciones estructurales por el método de los mínimos cuadrados. Resultados los datos indican que ambas estrategias de GC influyen positivamente sobre la creatividad, sin embargo, el efecto de la personalización es mayor. Además, la OE a la innovación incide positivamente sobre ambas estrategias de GC, sin embargo, la OE a la competencia solo influye sobre la codificación. Originalidad la relación entre estrategias de GC y creatividad se ha planteado en el plano estrictamente teórico, por ende, este artículo aporta evidencia empírica sobre el particular. Además, establece el efecto directo de la OE sobre las estrategias de GC que ha sido analizado de manera tangencial y, de este modo, se superan las limitaciones que se han planteado en la literatura en torno a la forma como se ha venido analizando la relación GC-creatividad, sin considerar las implicaciones de la estrategia del negocio.

  • Is organizational learning culture a good bet'

    • Pages: 328 - 343
      Abstract: Academia Revista Latinoamericana de Administración, Volume 30, Issue 3, Page 328-343, August 2017.
      Purpose Interest in the relationship between organizational culture and performance is not new but it still attracts considerable attention from researchers. In the literature on organizational learning, organizational culture is mainly conceived as an essential condition to facilitate and support learning and consequently as an important feature in achieving organizational performance nowadays. In the scope of this research topic, the purpose of this paper is to analyze the effect of organizational learning culture on two organizational outcomes – profitability and customer satisfaction, and the mediation effect of total quality management (TQM) in these relationships. Design/methodology/approach The data were collected from 107 firms and the technique used for data analysis was structural equation modeling. Findings The results reveal a positive direct impact of organizational learning culture on organizational profitability and a positive indirect effect, through TQM, on customer satisfaction. Originality/value These findings support to a body of literature that claims the relevance of developing a cultural orientation toward learning in organizations in order to contribute to organizational success. This study also takes into account some methodological features in order to increase the quality of culture-performance research. Objetivo O interesse na relação entre cultura organizacional e performance, embora não sendo novo, continua a atrair uma atenção considerável da investigação. Na literatura sobre aprendizagem organizacional, a cultura organizacional é maioritariamente entendida como uma condição essencial para facilitar a aprendizagem nas e das organizações e, consequentemente, como um aspeto importante para garantir um desempenho organizacional positivo. No âmbito desta temática, este estudo analisa o efeito de uma cultura organizacional orientada para a aprendizagem em dois tipos distintos de resultados organizacionais – a rentabilidade e a satisfação do cliente, assim como o papel mediador da gestão pela qualidade total nestas relações. Método Os dados foram recolhidos numa amostra de 107 empresas e utilizaram-se modelos de equações estruturais para a sua análise. Resultados Os resultados revelam um efeito positivo direto da cultura de aprendizagem na rentabilidade e um efeito positivo indireto, via gestão pela qualidade total, na satisfação dos clientes. Originalidade/Valor Estes resultados são consonantes com a literatura que defende a relevância de desenvolver uma orientação cultural para a aprendizagem nas organizações, de forma a contribuir para o sucesso organizacional. Este estudo tem, igualmente, em consideração vários aspetos metodológicos que visam contribuir para a qualidade da investigação da relação cultura-performance.

  • Market power and audit market collusion: the Spanish case

    • Pages: 344 - 361
      Abstract: Academia Revista Latinoamericana de Administración, Volume 30, Issue 3, Page 344-361, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyse whether the major international audit firms reach collusive agreements in Spain, in order to exercise market power and impose higher prices than those of competitors. According to the traditional theory of oligopoly, the ability to achieve these agreements is dependent primarily on the high level of market concentration, so that multiple studies have analysed the relationship between concentration and prices. However, the concentration has serious limitations to infer collusion and therefore the exercise of market power (Dedman and Lennox, 2009). Design/methodology/approach Based on an alternative current of the theory of industrial organisation, the authors use measures of industrial mobility as a measure of collusion or rivalry of firms in oligopolistic markets. Findings The results reveal that international audit firms do not reach collusive agreements to limit competition between them. Social implications According to the empirical evidence obtained, the measures taken by the regulatory bodies to avoid market concentration would not be necessary or efficient and they would have significant costs for the audit market (GAO, 2003, 2008; FRC, 2009; European Commission, 2010; Competition Commission, 2013). Originality/value To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first study to introduce mobility measures to explain market collusion and the exercise of market power in the audit market. Propósito El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar si las Grandes Firmas Internacionales de auditoría alcanzan acuerdos colusivos en España con la finalidad de ejercer poder de mercado e imponer precios superiores a los de los competidores. Según la teoría tradicional del oligopolio, la capacidad para alcanzar estos acuerdos se hace depender fundamentalmente del alto nivel de concentración del mercado, por lo que múltiples estudios han analizado la relación entre concentración y precios. Sin embargo, la concentración presenta serias limitaciones para inferir la colusión y, por tanto, el ejercicio del poder de mercado (Dedman y Lennox, 2009). Diseño/metodología/enfoque Basándonos en una corriente alternativa de la teoría de la organización industrial, utilizamos medidas de movilidad industrial como medida de la colusión o rivalidad de las empresas en mercados oligopolistas. Resultados Nuestros resultados revelan que las firmas internacionales de auditoría no alcanzan acuerdos colusivos para limitar la competencia entre ellas. Implicaciones sociales Según la evidencia empírica que obtenemos, las medidas adoptadas por los organismos reguladores con la finalidad de desconcentrar el mercado, las cuales presentan importantes costes para el mercado de auditoría, no resultarían ni necesarias ni eficientes (GAO, 2003, 2008; FRC, 2009; Comisión Europea, 2010; Competition Commission, 2013). Originalidad/valor Hasta donde conocemos, éste es el primer estudio que introduce medidas de movilidad del mercado para explicar la colusión y el ejercicio del poder de mercado en el mercado de auditoría.

  • Art as an investment alternative: the case of Argentina

    • Pages: 362 - 382
      Abstract: Academia Revista Latinoamericana de Administración, Volume 30, Issue 3, Page 362-382, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to present the formulation of the first exhaustive price index for Argentinian (and other Latin American countries) visual artists using 5,069 works sold in auctions by 71 Argentinian artists during the years 1980-2014. Design/methodology/approach The authors estimated a regression of hedonic prices using the ordinary least squares method. When the regression was run and the results were analysed, the authors then estimated the annual price index of Argentinian artists’ work to then compare them with different financial and economic variables. Findings The average annual nominal arithmetic rate of return in dollars for Argentinian art during this period was 6.81 per cent, with a 29.11 per cent standard deviation. Argentinian art shows a low correlation with Argentinian and US companies’ shares and a slightly negative correlation with US bonds. This is the reason for artworks to be included in investors’ portfolios despite the relatively high volatility. Research limitations/implications Valuating works of art in Argentina can be explained by a series of their attributes. The benefits of art as an investment should be contrasted with factors including illiquidity and high transaction costs that are inherent when investing in works of art. Practical implications Argentinian artists’ works have higher prices when, ceteris paribus, they are dated; they are auctioned in either Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Galería Arroyo, Roldan & Cia, Meeting Art, or Naon & Cia; they are oil or acrylic paintings; they are larger in size – although the price increase is decreasing when the size of the painting increases; and when the artist dies before their work is auctioned. Originality/value This work presents the first rigorous price index of Argentinian artists’ works. Additionally, and as far as the authors have been able to observe, the time-period in this article is the longest that has been used in studies on art as an investment in emerging markets. Propósito Este trabajo presenta la elaboración del primer índice exhaustivo de precios de artistas plásticos de Argentina (y de cualquier otro país de Latino América) a partir de 5.069 ventas de obras de 71 artistas argentinos realizadas en subastas durante el período 1980-2014. Diseño/metodología/enfoque Se estimó una regresión de precios hedónica por el Método de Mínimos Cuadrados Ordinarios. Una vez corrida la regresión y analizados sus resultados, se procedió a estimar el índice anual de precios de obras de artistas argentinos, para posteriormente relacionarlos con diversas variables financieras y económicas. Hallazgos El rendimiento promedio aritmético nominal anual en dólares del arte argentino durante ese período fue de 6,81% con una desviación estándar de 29,11%. El arte argentino exhibe una baja correlación con las acciones de empresas argentinas y de EEUU y ligeramente negativa con bonos de EEUU, lo cual le confiere atributos para ser incluido en las carteras de los inversionistas, a pesar de la elevada volatilidad. Limitaciones e implicaciones de la investigación Se consigue que la valoración de arte en Argentina puede ser explicada por una serie de atributos de las obras de arte. Los beneficios del arte como inversión deben ser evaluados con la iliquidez y los elevados costos de transacción, entre otros costos, inherentes a la inversión en obras de arte. Implicaciones prácticas Las obras de artistas argentinos tienen precios más altos cuando, ceteris paribus: están fechadas, se subastan en Christie's, en Sotheby's o en Galería Arroyo, son ejecutadas en óleo o en acrílico, tienen un mayor área, aunque el aumento de precio es decreciente al aumentar el área, y cuando el artista ya había fallecido al momento de celebrase la subasta. Originalidad/valor Este trabajo propone el primer índice riguroso de precios de obras de artistas de Argentina. Además, y hasta donde hemos podido comprobar, el período utilizado en este trabajo es el más largo que se haya empleado en estudios del arte como inversión en mercados emergentes.

  • Naive portfolios, Brazilian stock funds, and individual investors

    • Pages: 383 - 401
      Abstract: Academia Revista Latinoamericana de Administración, Volume 30, Issue 3, Page 383-401, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to contrast three investment choices within the reach of individual investors: naive portfolios of Brazilian stocks; actively managed stock funds; and the Ibovespa index, which represents passive management as well as to offer insights on the performance of professional asset managers in this large emerging market. Design/methodology/approach Equally weighted portfolios contained between 5 and 30 stocks to keep transaction costs low. Stock selection used the Ibovespa constituents and considered value (dividend yield (DY) and price-to-book ratio), momentum (past returns), and liquidity, as well as the Sharpe ratio (SR) over the 2003-2012 period, rebalancing three times a year. Findings Cumulative returns of naive portfolios are large. They frequently outperform the index for all values of n. They also outperform stock funds, particularly when the invested amount exceeds US$25,000, due to transaction costs. Yet, expected out-of-sample SRs corrected for errors in estimates are very low, suggesting that one should not count on this historical performance in the future. Naive portfolios may simply be more exposed to additional value, size, and momentum risks. Results are sensitive to time period selection. Practical implications Naive portfolios may be attractive to individual investors in Brazil relative to stock funds, which seem to strive to keep volatility low and may be better when the investment amount is low. There may be merit for value or momentum stock selection strategies when forming small equally weighted portfolios. Originality/value The paper contrasts realistic stock investing alternatives for individuals, it provides a view of stock fund performance in Brazil, and offers practical implications that may be pertinent in other emerging stock markets. Objetivo Contrastar três opções de investimento ao alcance de investidores individuais: carteiras ingênuas de ações brasileiras; fundos de ações de gestão ativa; e o índice Ibovespa, que representa a gestão passiva. Oferecer informações sobre o desempenho de gestores de ativos profissionais neste grande mercado emergente. Método As carteiras igualmente ponderadas continham entre 5 e 30 ações para manter os custos de transação baixos. A seleção de ações utilizou os componentes do Ibovespa e considerou o valor (rendimento de dividendos e relação preço/valor patrimonial), momentum (retornos passados) e liquidez, bem como o Índice de Sharpe no período 2003-2012, rebalanceando três vezes ao ano. Resultados Os retornos acumulados de carteiras ingênuas são grandes. Eles frequentemente superam o índice para todos os valores de N. Eles também superam os fundos de ações, particularmente quando o montante investido excede US$ 25,000, devido aos custos de transação. Contudo, os Índices de Sharpe esperados fora de amostra corrigidos por erros nas estimativas são muito baixos, sugerindo que não se deve contar com este desempenho histórico no futuro. As carteiras ingênuas podem simplesmente estar mais expostas a fatores riscos adicionais, tal como os de valor, tamanho e momentum. Os resultados são sensíveis à seleção do período de tempo. Implicações práticas As carteiras ingênuas podem ser atrativas para os investidores individuais no Brasil em relação aos fundos de ações, que parecem se esforçar para manter a volatilidade baixa e podem ser melhores quando o valor do investimento é baixo. Pode haver mérito para estratégias de seleção de ações de valor ou momentum ao formar carteiras igualmente ponderadas pequenas. Originalidade/valor O artigo contrasta alternativas realistas de investimento em ações para indivíduos, oferece uma visão do desempenho dos fundos de ações no Brasil e oferece implicações práticas que podem ser pertinentes em outros mercados emergentes.

  • Subject or object: a product’s scent congruent perspectives

    • Pages: 402 - 416
      Abstract: Academia Revista Latinoamericana de Administración, Volume 30, Issue 3, Page 402-416, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is evaluate to what extent consumers can recognise a scent within a context that is congruent either with the product or with the user, respectively, objects’ quality or subjects’ involvement. Design/methodology/approach This paper consists of two experimental studies. The first study assesses people’s capacity to recognise three scents: leather, synthetic leather, and fabric. The second study assesses the way in which a frame of reference (quality or involvement) affects people’s capacity for scent recognition (leather and fabric). Findings Results confirm the difficulty of scent recognition revealing, in the first study, a low level of consistency in subjects’ responses. The second study shows an interaction between the type of scent and consumers’ framework: subjects who are primed to think about product quality present more accurate scent recognition when they smell leather, whereas subjects who are primed to think about themselves present more accurate scent recognition when they smell fabric. Practical implications These results can be used in brand communication. A scent, such as that of leather, should highlight quality attributes in its communication. If the product is unscented, communication should highlight the subject who uses the product. Originality/value Previous studies show the importance of the consistency between scent and product marketing strategies. This study complements these findings by differentiating the context where a scent is presented considering either the product (the object’s quality attributes) or the individual who uses that product (subject’s involvement). Propósito Este estudio evalúa en qué medida los consumidores pueden reconocer un aroma en un contexto congruente con el producto o con el usuario, respectivamente, calidad del objeto o involucramiento del sujeto. Diseño/metodología/aproximación Este artículo consiste en dos estudios experimentales. El primero evalúa la capacidad de los individuos para reconocer tres aromas: cuero, cuero sintético y tela. El segundo estudio evalúa de qué forma un contexto de referencia (calidad o involucramiento) influye en la capacidad para reconocer un aroma (cuero y tela). Hallazgos Los resultados confirman la dificultad para el reconocimiento del aroma mostrando, en el primer estudio, un bajo nivel de consistencia en las respuestas de los sujetos. El segundo estudio muestra una interacción entre el tipo de aroma y el contexto de los consumidores: Sujetos que se les induce a pensar en la calidad del producto tienen un reconocimiento del aroma más acertado cuando huelen cuero; mientras que sujetos que se inducen a pensar en sí mismos tienen un reconocimiento del aroma más acertado cuando huelen tela. Implicaciones prácticas Los resultados pueden ser utilizados en la comunicación de la marca. Un aroma, como el del cuero, deberá destacar en la comunicación atributos de calidad. Si el producto no tiene aroma, la comunicación debe destacar el sujeto que usa el producto. Originalidad/valor Estudios previos señalan la importancia de la consistencia entre el aroma y las estrategias de mercadeo de un producto. Este estudio complementa estos hallazgos diferenciando el contexto en el que se presenta un aroma considerando el producto (atributos de calidad del objeto) o el individuo quien lo usa (involucramiento del sujeto).

  • Dynamic capabilities and marketing capabilities in Portugal

    • Pages: 417 - 430
      Abstract: Academia Revista Latinoamericana de Administración, Volume 30, Issue 3, Page 417-430, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to offer an operationalization of an aggregate construct and a decisive contribution to building a dynamic capabilities theory with marketing implications. The authors investigate the influence of dynamic capabilities, specifically routine creation through embedding learning and knowledge, on marketing capabilities and performance in Portugal. The authors examine the direct relationship between dynamic capabilities and marketing capabilities, which is indirectly linked to performance depending on the effectiveness of the resulting new resource configuration. Design/methodology/approach The authors used four construct dimensions: knowledge creation routines, knowledge transfer processes, marketing capabilities, and firm performance. The study was based on an inter-industry random sample of firms selected from a commercial list. During a nine-month period the authors gathered data from a questionnaire delivered in hand to participating firms and collected through in-depth personal interviews. It was filled out by directors of Portuguese firms who agreed to participate in this study. Findings First, dynamic capabilities play an important role in the evolution of marketing capabilities and the maintenance of competitive advantage. Specifically, the authors identified a link between knowledge creation routines and knowledge transfer processes with marketing capabilities. Second, the effect of dynamic capabilities on performance can be considered to be substantially indirect. However, the results also show a direct link between knowledge transfer and performance. Originality/value First, the development of a model establishing the contribution to the evolution of marketing capabilities in order to compete in a changing environment, considering the critical effect of knowledge creation and transfer in a non-static market configuration. Second, the analysis of marketing capabilities from different layers, from strategic to more operational aspects. Objetivo Este artigo propõe a operacionalização de um construto agregado e oferece um contributo significativo para a definição de uma teoria de capacidades dinâmicas com implicações ao nível do marketing. Investigou-se a influência das capacidades dinâmicas, especialmente a criação de rotinas através da implementação de aprendizagem e de conhecimento, nas capacidades de marketing e no desempenho empresarial, em Portugal. Testou-se a relação direta entre capacidades dinâmicas e capacidades de marketing, que está indirectamente ligada ao desempenho empresarial, dependendo da eficácia da configuração de novos recursos resultante. Arquitetura/metodologia/abordagem Utilizaram-se quatro dimensões: rotinas de criação de conhecimento, processos de transferência de conhecimento, capacidades de marketing, e desempenho empresarial. Este estudo baseou-se numa amostra aleatória inter-industrial de empresas selecionadas a partir de um cadastro comercial. Durante um período de nove meses, recolheram-se dados a partir de um questionário entregue em mão às empresas participantes a partir de um processo de coleta efetuado com base em entrevistas pessoais extensivas a diretores de empresas portuguesas que concordaram em participar neste estudo. Resultados Em primeiro lugar, as capacidades dinâmicas desempenham um papel importante na evolução das capacidades de marketing e na manutenção de uma vantagem competitiva. Especificamente, identificou-se uma relação entre as rotinas de criação de conhecimento e os processos de transferência de conhecimento com as capacidades de marketing. Em segundo lugar, verificou-se que o efeito das capacidades dinâmicas no desempenho empresarial é essencialmente indirecto. Ao mesmo tempo, os resultados demostram também uma relação directa entre a transferência de conhecimento e o desempenho empresarial. Originalidade/valor Primeiro, o desenvolvimento de um modelo que descreve o contributo das capacidades de marketing no contexto da competição numa envolvente em mudança, considerando o efeito crítico da criação e transferência de conhecimento no âmbito de um mercado não-estático. Segundo, a análise das capacidades de marketing a diferentes níveis, dos mais estratégicos aos mais operacionais.
