  • Organising multilingually: setting an agenda for studying language at
           work
    • Authors: Jo Angouri, Rebecca Piekkari
      Pages: 8 - 27
      Abstract: This paper brings together International Business (IB) and sociolinguistic research on the use of language in multilingual organisations and organising. We problematise core categories and underlying assumptions that have been adopted in this field of research to argue for a holistic and context sensitive approach. Special attention is paid to the notions of national language and multinational organisation. Scholars have started to argue for new ways of researching language in organisations and to call for more processually oriented categories and meanings such as organising and languaging. Current core categories such as monolingual/multilingual, small/large and national/multinational often remain static, structural and binary, and are not aligned with the fluidity and change of human activity or with the promise of the broader linguistic and discursive turns in social sciences. We argue for multidisciplinary enquiry, and propose theoretical and methodological advances with a future agenda for studying the dynamics of language in multilingual settings.

  • Multilingual research, monolingual publications: management
           scholarship in English only?
    • Authors: Jo Angouri, Rebecca Piekkari
      Pages: 28 - 45
      Abstract: This paper identifies several stages of international management scholarship as multilingual in character as the conception and execution of research projects, whether empirical or theoretical, frequently require the use of several languages. These multilingual practices are contrasted with the monolingual nature of management research at the stage of disseminating newly generated knowledge: a stage that is dominated by the exclusive and taken-for-granted use of the English language. The paper challenges the ontological and epistemological assumption such monolingual practice is based upon and opens the 'black box' of international management research by asking questions about its language-based processes, which remain muted and ignored. In concluding, a turn to translation is proposed in order to harness the creativity inherent in multilingual research, while preserving the role of English as a shared language of knowledge.

  • Conceptualising English as a business lingua franca
    • Authors: Jo Angouri, Rebecca Piekkari
      Pages: 46 - 61
      Abstract: Though a popular and somewhat controversial topic in discussions on language in IB, the notion of English as a (business) lingua franca/(B)ELF still lacks clear conceptualisation. This paper argues that research in IB and linguistics can be mutually complementary and supportive in conceptualising BELF, and that it is important to separate the concept of BELF from that of a common corporate language. The paper synthesises key works from both disciplines to conceptualise BELF as an emergent, multilingual use of English that adapts to the demands and resources of the specific context. It further argues that Wenger's concept of Communities of Practice offers a useful bridge between the disciplines, and that there is a need for more empirical research.

  • Language boundary-crossing by business school faculty using English as
           a medium of instruction
    • Authors: Peter Daly, Dennis Davy
      Pages: 62 - 81
      Abstract: This paper explores the challenges facing non-native speaking faculty using English as a medium of instruction in French business schools. It analyses the challenges reported by 15 faculty members, their perceptions of what is lost and gained, the strategies they employ and the metaphors they use to describe their teaching experience. Findings show that the challenges are both linguistic and non-linguistic, with faculty reporting both linguistic loss and cultural and pedagogical gain, as they enact communicative and coping strategies to compensate for their lack of English knowledge, and use metaphors that evoke their teacher identity. This research points to the need to conduct language audits given the sophistication of language use within the management academy, the taken-for-granted nature of institutional Englishisation as well as the multiple identities of business school faculty, who undertake extensive personal development to navigate the challenges they face when teaching in English.

  • 'It crosses all the boundaries': hybrid language use as
           empowering resource
    • Authors: Peter Daly, Dennis Davy
      Pages: 82 - 110
      Abstract: This study contributes to language-sensitive International Business research by examining forms of language use other than monolingual conversations in national languages. It focuses on hybrid languages that are derived from heterogeneous language sources. Based on modern linguistic research, the study conceptualises multilingualism as joint mobilisation of linguistic resources. Adopting a discursive approach, it empirically investigates the positive and negative effects of hybrid language use for individuals and teams in two companies in Switzerland. The findings show that users of hybrid language are positioned as being able to exchange information more effectively, feeling more comfortable in interactions as well as having more possibilities to express voice and participate. At the same time, hybrid language use is described as having limiting effects in certain contexts. The study therefore suggests to integrate hybrid languages in definitions of individual and organisational language capital, and to strategically address it on the top management and human resources management level.

  • Discretionary power on the front line: a bottom-up perspective on
           corporate language management
    • Authors: Guro Refsum Sanden, Dorte Lønsmann
      Pages: 111 - 137
      Abstract: This paper investigates the communication practices used by front-line employees to cross language boundaries in the context of English language policies implemented by the management of three multinational corporations (MNCs) headquartered in Scandinavia. Based on an analysis of interview and document data, our findings show that employees face a number of different language boundaries in their everyday work, and that ad hoc and informal solutions in many cases are vital for successful cross-language communication. We introduce the concept of 'discretionary power' to explain how and why front-line employees diverge from the corporate language policies, and emphasise the role of individual agency in the implementation of language policy. With a focus on the communication practices of front-line employees, the paper contributes with a bottom-up, employee-centred perspective on corporate language management, emphasising the importance of paying attention to the micro level of everyday interactions in the study of language policy and practice.

  • Small- and medium-sized enterprises in a multilingual region: best
           practices in multilingualism or missed opportunities?
    • Authors: Guro Refsum Sanden, Dorte Lønsmann
      Pages: 138 - 157
      Abstract: The paper focuses on small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) located in bilingual/multilingual regions. We analyse how they manage multilingual communication, multilingual knowledge sharing, and internationalisation. The findings are based on a qualitative and quantitative study conducted on SMEs located in multilingual South Tyrol, Italy. Our data reveal that exploiting multilingualism as a competitive advantage represents a challenge for the local SMEs well before internationalisation. Language-related challenges are partly similar to those faced by large international multinationals. However, some of the specific characteristics of SMEs have a notable impact on language practices, (multilingual) knowledge sharing, and internationalisation paths.

  • The impact of communist imprint prevalence on the risk-taking propensity
           of successful Russian entrepreneurs
    • Authors: Elitsa R. Banalieva, Sheila M. Puffer, Daniel J. McCarthy, Vlad Vaiman
      Pages: 158 - 190
      Abstract: Scholars debate whether entrepreneurs socialised under communism exhibit an increased or subdued risk-taking propensity after that experience. Some note that communism discouraged standing out and thus risk-taking, while others counter that communism necessitated risk-taking to survive. We reconcile this debate by differentiating between reformist and hard-line communist imprints. In so doing, we extend communist imprinting theory by introducing the concept of imprint prevalence and studying how the degree to which one type of communist imprint prevailed over the other affects the subsequent risk-taking propensity of successful Russian entrepreneurs. Our findings also have implications for entrepreneurship in other transition and emerging economies.

  • Entrepreneurial orientation in a hostile and turbulent environment: risk
           and innovativeness among successful Russian entrepreneurs
    • Authors: Daniel J. McCarthy, Sheila M. Puffer, Anna Lamin
      Pages: 191 - 221
      Abstract: Applying the construct of entrepreneurial orientation (EO) we test the relationship between the dimensions of entrepreneurial risk taking and innovativeness. Risk taking is measured as an entrepreneurial propensity as well as a behaviour. Innovativeness is manifested in decisions for strategic growth, specifically strategies of vertical integration and horizontal diversification. The study context is the turbulent and hostile environment of Russia, focusing on 158 successful entrepreneurs and their firms, and extending the EO construct beyond the more positive set of circumstances as found in developed economies. Results show that both operationalisations of risk are significantly related to firm innovativeness, and are generally counter-intuitive to what might be found in a more stable environment of developed economies like the USA and Western Europe.
