  • Reflective and Cognitive Perspectives on International Capital Budgeting
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose Recurring failures of international business investments motivate reflective, cognitive and socio-constructivist perspectives on the international capital budgeting process. This paper develops a framework for an enlightened management and governance praxis against a backdrop of cognitive and motivational biases promoting a reflected international capital budgeting decision process. Furthermore, societally relevant questions are raised whether these biases might have an effect on various stakeholders in public-private partnerships. Design/methodology/approach Based on an interdisciplinary literature review and substantiated by empirical studies, the cognitive biases and flaws of the international capital budgeting process are discussed making use of a five stages process scheme. The article applies the interpretative paradigm and regards the international capital budgeting process stages as a socio-political process of reality construction and critically assesses the motives of its actors. Consequently, the authors develop and discuss three principle-based behavioural rationalisation factors. Findings International capital budgeting is not a process of rational choice but of social construction of reality. Reflective prudence, critical communication and independence are three rationalisation factors which could, if applied along the five stages of the international capital budgeting process, systematically lead to de-biasing and thus enhance the performative praxis of international investment decisions. Research limitations/implications The international capital budgeting process deals with the construction of future scenarios under uncertainty and assessment of potential success and failure of future projects. The defined (or any other) rationalisation factors are subject to cultural biases and can naturally not guarantee successful investment projects. Although the success of the application of various de-biasing tactics was empirically confirmed, the aggregated rationalization factors of the paper have not been tested. Practical implications The paper is aimed at enhancing the reflective understanding and the performative praxis of the international capital budgeting process. The practical recommendations aggregated in the rationalization factors are explicitly elaborated for international business practitioners. Originality/value The article provides a rare interdisciplinary literature review on cognitive biases in the international capital budgeting process. It critically reflects the social construction of it various stages and its social repercussions and develops practical rationalization factors for an enhancement of the international capital budgeting process as a performative praxis.

  • Practice transfer in MNCs: a process of tension and contestation
    • Authors: Toke Bjerregaard, Mai S Linneberg, Jakob Lauring
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose The purpose of this article is to further the understanding of how the transfer and adoption of HQ-mandated work practices is shaped by ongoing struggles among the multiple actors of a subsidiary. We suggest an alternative perspective for theorizing and researching the management practices and structures that emerge in face of HQ demands for divergent practice change in subsidiaries, namely a theory of practice approach. Design/methodology/approach The article reports the findings of an ethnographic field study in a UK subsidiary of a multinational corporation based in Denmark. Findings The study provides a relevant contribution by demonstrating how the degree of adoption of alternative, HQ-mandated work systems undergoes dramatic changes over time due to socially dynamic negotiations and struggles between interest groups in a subsidiary. Research limitations/implications A practice theoretic approach unveils the underlying social micro-dynamics that shape the degree to which employees in subsidiaries ‘internalize’, actively sustain or disrupt divergent practices representing a given contextual rationale. Originality/value The practice perspective provides a way for understanding how the practices and rationales that emerge locally in response to HQ-demands are under ongoing (re)reconstruction. It responds to calls for research on why and how contextual rationales, institutional or cultural features, actively are made salient, polarize or converge, in conflictual practice transfer processes due to local contingencies.

  • Transnational activities of Colombians in the US: A qualitative
           exploration of the migration-development nexus
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose This article analyses the transnational activities of Colombian migrants in the US, the reasons why migrants engage, or not, in these activities, and the impact of migrants’ transnational activities at the household, community and national level. Design/methodology/approach The article analyses data obtained from focus groups with migrant families and interviews with government officials and an expert researcher, as well as secondary data sources. Findings The main transnational activities in which Colombian migrants engage are those individually oriented, while participation in collective actions such as philanthropy or membership of political parties and hometown associations is limited. The impact of those activities varies when analysed at different levels. Overall, transnational activities of Colombian migrants can be seen as contributing to the perpetuation of South-North dependency, even if they help improve the socioeconomic situation of migrants and their families. Originality/value The article contributes to the migration-development nexus debate by pointing to the significance of distinguishing the level of analysis (micro, meso, macro) when studying the impacts of transnationalism on development.

  • Shareholder activism and the ethical harnessing of institutional
           investors: The unique case of ShareAction
    • Authors: Mila Ivanova
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose This study aims to foster a deeper understanding of socio-ethical shareholder activism by outlining the corporate campaigning strategies of a UK based NGO and by assessing their impact on both institutional investors and the practices of two multinational companies. As we move into a world where shareholder ownership is becoming more democratised, shareholder activism is gaining prominence in the US, Europe and Asia, opening new avenues for participation in corporate governance by stakeholders such as NGOs who have traditionally been uninvolved in corporate decisions. Design/methodology/approach The article adopts a qualitative methodology and case study research design. It relies on semi-structured interviews, analysis of documents and participant observation. Findings The study sheds light into the ways in which NGOs are connecting themselves to the financial sector. It argues that they can pursue their political goals by framing their arguments in a way that emphasises the short-term financial risks/benefits for investors. Second, it demystifies the term ‘shareholder activism’, transforming it from an action tool belonging only to big and powerful institutions, to a tool which gives other stakeholders such as NGOs and ordinary people a real stake in companies’ affairs. What is more, the study highlights the divergent nature of institutional shareholder activist intervention in the US and the UK. Research limitations/implications Given the generally long-term nature of shareholder campaigns, which can sometimes span over several years, it could have been beneficial to adopt a longitudinal research design. Future research can endeavour to focus on a number of different campaigns over a period that exceeds three years. Practical implications The research has implications for NGOs adopting a shareholder activist campaigning model and for policy makers aiming to encourage investor stewardship. Originality/value The fact that the research field of socio-ethical shareholder activism is relatively new and under-explored by academia, coupled with the growing incidence of the phenomenon in the UK and across the world, as well as its potential benefits for society as a whole, renders further investigation into the topic necessary.

  • Lost overseas? The challenges facing Korean transformational
           leadership in a cross-cultural context
    • Authors: Inju Yang
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose this conceptual paper explores the leadership of Korean middle managers in a cross-cultural context. Design/methodology/approach we present three propositions in relation to perceived charisma, individualized consideration and inspirational communication of Korean transformational leadership at home and overseas, especially in comparison with Anglo Saxon countries such as North America and the United Kingdom. Findings following the notion of implicit theory of leadership, we argue that the effectiveness of Korean leadership may depend on cultural dimensions such as collectivism/individualism and power distance. Research limitations/implications we adapt the perspective of transformational leadership with its universal appeal to various cultures in examining the effectiveness of Korean leadership at home and overseas. Practical implications our illustration of Korean leadership in a cross-cultural context sheds light on the challenges facing Korean management in global contexts. Originality/value despite significant ongoing investment abroad by Korean conglomerates, relatively little has been written on Korean leadership in cross-cultural contexts. We believe this paper could stimulate further studies in this area.

  • Renewing the call for >critical perspectives on international
           business>: towards a second decade of challenging the orthodox
    • First page: 2
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 1, March 2016.
      Purpose This article reflects on the future of critical perspectives on international business (cpoib) by considering some key developments in the international business (IB) context since the journal’s launch in 2005. The journal’s mission and scope is refreshed in light of these developments. Changes to the editorial team and editorial advisory board are also announced. Design/methodology/approach A review of some of the key developments in the IB context provides the background and justification for a revised editorial mission and scope. Findings Given changes in the IB environment, the need for a journal that takes a critically reflexive view on the activities of IB and issues of relevance to IB is found to be of increasing importance. This finding underlines the need for scholars to undertake empirical and conceptual studies that adopt critical perspectives to identify IB practices that are detrimental to stakeholders broadly defined and to offer alternatives. Originality/value This is the first effort to reassess and renew cpoib’s mission and scope in the light of the changes in the IB context since the journal’s launch in 2005.

  • Coming of age, seeking legitimacy: The historical trajectory of African
           management research
    • Authors: Joseph Amankwah-Amoah
      First page: 22
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 1, March 2016.
      Purpose Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the historical trajectory of African management research and managerial thinking. Design/methodology/approach Design/methodology/approach – This paper draws from a review and synthesis of the literature from 1960–2012. Findings Findings – The analysis led to the identification of three distinct phases which reflect the difficult and uncertain beginning to a promising future. Our historical pathway model also allows us to account for the evolution of management philosophies and thoughts, and current state of knowledge. Originality/value Originality/value – Although there is a burgeoning stream of African management research, lack of comprehensive review and synthesis have obscured the enormous strides made. We advance a “novel” approach towards theory application and theory creation building on the “convergence hypothesis” and “divergence hypothesis”. Our analysis yielded a number of promising avenues for future research.

  • China in Africa: a critical literature review
    • Authors: Abdoulkadre Ado, Zhan Su
      First page: 40
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 1, March 2016.
      Purpose Purpose: This article critically assesses the major contributions to the academic literature on China’s increased focus on Africa, from 2001 to 2011. It discusses the key trends concerning China’s presence in Africa, and draws conclusions on the significance of the studies by emphasizing and contrasting the prevailing positions. Design/methodology/approach Research approach: Based on a qualitative approach employing an integrative and comprehensive literature review, we performed a content analysis of high-impact, peer-reviewed articles. Findings Findings: The paper questions and repositions some of the existing controversies. The results from existing studies remain questionable, requiring further clarification and more theoretical backing. It, moreover, highlights the notion that behind the explicit neutrality of views of China’s presence in Africa, implicit assumptions may exist. These are often in the differences in narratives conveyed by Western and Southern stakeholders. Research limitations/implications Implications: Most of the conclusions drawn from this paper need to be re-explored and supported by additional research. This could be done by widening the scope of the analysis. Studies need to provide more empirical support for their assertions, through quantitative data and evidence-based qualitative analyses – all within a framework that considers more cultural, social, and historical dimensions. The paper also suggests that an institutionally based view appears most relevant in better explaining China in Africa. Originality/value Originality/value: This paper reviews a decade of research on China in Africa, and presents a snapshot of the current state of knowledge. It also raises concerns to be analyzed by future research, and proposes new avenues for better understanding China’s presence in Africa.

  • Australia-China-Africa Investment Partnerships: A new frontier for
           triangular cooperation?
    • Authors: Alice de Jonge
      First page: 61
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 1, March 2016.
      Purpose This paper aims to examine the potential for ‘triangular cooperation’ between investment partners from Australia, China and host-African nations to contribute to economic development in Africa. Design/methodology/approach The paper discusses a number of complementarities between Australian and Chinese investors in mining, agriculture, energy, research and education and finance - sectors vital to Africa’s future development. These complementarities are examined in light of recent development studies literature on the benefits of triangular cooperation and recent literature examining links between FDI policy and economic development. Findings The paper concludes that there is much to be gained by making the most of existing and potential synergies between Australian, Chinese and local investors in African settings. Research limitations/implications The implications of this paper are first, that African nations should keep the benefits of triangular cooperation in mind when designing FDI policies, and second, that Australian and Chinese investors should be more willing to explore potential investment partner synergies when investing in Africa. The paper also suggests an agenda for future research into how good design of FDI policies might best promote healthy economic development in African nations. Practical implications Australian and Chinese companies should be more willing to explore potential avenues for cooperation when investing in Africa, while African governments should be more mindful of how rules and policies can maximise the local benefits of FDI. Originality/value The value of the paper is in applying the concept of ‘triangular cooperation’ to direct investment. The paper also provides an original focus on Australia-China investment synergies in African settings.

  • Succeeding in international competition by making use of home-country
           institutions
    • Authors: Eli Moen
      First page: 83
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 1, March 2016.
      Purpose Addresses the question how a low-cost carrier embedded in a coordinated market economy is succeeding in a highly competitive industry with a strong cost focus Design/methodology/approach Reports the results of a case study of a low-cost carrier (Norwegian Air Shuttle). The case study draws on both organizational and institutional theory as to how the international business environment and the national institutional framework continuously impact on its strategies. Findings It is found that home-country high wage levels and strong labour regulation have been overcome by developing firm-specific capabilities based on active employee involvement which aligns with the tradition of the national system of industrial relations. Research limitations/implications The present case study provides an input for further research on how actors deal with conflicting pressures. It supports the varieties of capitalism argument that national institutional arrangements influence firms and actors’ strategies and practices, but it also supports the call within institutional theories for a more malleable conceptualizing of the link between actors and institutions than is the case in the varieties of capitalism models. Originality/value The paper provides an account of a successful case in a highly competitive international business despite disadvantages linked with home-country institutions.
