  • Marketized state ownership and foreign expansion of emerging market
           multinationals: Leveraging institutional competitive advantages
    • Authors: Ming Hua Li; Lin Cui; Jiangyong Lu
      Pages: 19 - 46
      Abstract: Abstract The emergence of marketized shareholders through corporate ownership reform and their impact on the foreign entry of emerging market firms is a critical but understudied issue. Our study investigates the effect of marketized state ownership on emerging market firms’ propensity to engage in foreign direct investment. We argue that firms with marketized state ownership may derive institutional competitive advantages from their dual responsiveness to shifting global market conditions and home government expectations which has a positive impact on their foreign investment decisions. However, such advantages are likely to vary in magnitude for firms with marketized state ownership at central and local levels of government due to different patterns of corporate restructuring. We predict that such ownership effects are contingent on firms’ affiliation to meso-level institutional structures such as state business groups which reallocate resources among members. Using a longitudinal sample of 973 Chinese publicly listed firms, we find empirical support for our arguments. Our research offers new insights on how emerging market multinationals may derive institutional advantages from pro-market reforms for overseas expansion.

  • Selective imitation of compatriot firms: Entry mode decisions of emerging
           market multinationals in cross-border acquisitions
    • Authors: Zhenzhen Xie; Jiatao Li
      Pages: 47 - 68
      Abstract: Abstract This research investigates imitation in cross-border acquisitions (CBAs) by emerging market multinationals (EMNCs) in terms of the equity share sought in such acquisitions. Earlier acquisitions by peer compatriots and by developed-market multinationals (DMNCs) are both models for imitation, but the former are more similar and potentially relevant. Analysis of 608 CBAs by Chinese firms between 1987 and 2008 supports the above argument. Further, it reveals that state-owned Chinese firms are less likely to imitate in general. Both state-owned and privately-owned Chinese acquirers are most likely to imitate privately-owned Chinese acquirers previously invested in the same environment. For state-owned Chinese acquirers, more frequent pursuit of a particular target share by earlier state-owned Chinese acquirers decreases rather than increases the likelihood of a later state-owned Chinese investors buying a similar share.

  • Internationalization within networks: Exploring the relationship between
           inward and outward FDI in China’s auto components industry
    • Authors: Peter Hertenstein; Dylan Sutherland; John Anderson
      Pages: 69 - 96
      Abstract: Abstract We explore how the outward FDI strategies of Chinese auto component multinational corporations (MNCs) are shaped by sub-contracting supply relationships established with developed market MNCs. We argue the strong presence of foreign MNC business networks developed through prior inward FDI constitutes an important home country effect influencing the outward FDI strategies of emerging market MNCs. Using the updated internationalization process model, we show how commitment to business networks is a critical mechanism driving the internationalization trajectories of Chinese auto component MNCs. This includes geographic location choices to psychically distant developed markets, strategic asset seeking orientation, pace of internationalization, and entry mode decisions.

    • Authors: En Xie; Yuanyuan Huang; Hao Shen; Yu Li

      Abstract: Abstract This paper examines how ties to large-scale state-owned enterprises and ties to banks affect firm performance in emerging economies. The findings, obtained from survey data collected from 208 firms in the Chinese manufacturing industry, indicate that both categories of ties improve firm performance. The value of the two categories of ties changes in organizational contexts that vary in terms of the moderators of size, age, and firm strategy. Specifically, ties to banks improve the performance of younger firms significantly more than that of older firms, while ties to large-scale state-owned enterprises improve the performance of smaller firms significantly more than that of larger firms.

  • Exploring cross-cultural skills for expatriate managers from Chinese
           multinationals: Congruence and contextualization
    • Authors: Dan Wang; Di Fan; Susan Freeman; Cherrie Jiuhua Zhu
      Pages: 123 - 146
      Abstract: Abstract This study explores what cross-cultural skills are essential for Chinese expatriate managers working in varied host countries, and how home and host contextual factors play a role in constraining the effective application of cross-cultural skills. To build a robust theoretical framework for expatriates’ cross-cultural skills, we integrate social learning theory with a contextual perspective that extends current knowledge of the cross-cultural skill framework. We conducted in-depth interviews with Chinese expatriate managers, foreign colleagues of expatriates, and expatriate supervisors to develop a holistic view on this topic. The findings demonstrate that Chinese expatriate managers working in the Middle East or Africa highly require self-maintenance skills to buffer negative influence of tough local work conditions, while interpersonal and communication skills are more important for those working in Europe or Australia to comprehend culturally different social expectations. Furthermore, Chinese expatriate managers’ home-development interpersonal and communication skills are not readily transferable to foreign contexts, mainly due to host perceptions that value work-life balance and a more equal relationship between leader and subordinates compared to the Chinese working values. This study extends expatriate skill literature by incorporating contextual factors to elaborate contextual influence on skills, and the findings have theoretical and practical significance for expatriate management from emerging market multinationals.

  • Exchange ideology in supervisor-subordinate dyads, LMX, and knowledge
           sharing: A social exchange perspective
    • Authors: Seckyoung Loretta Kim; Soojung Han; Seung Yeon Son; Seokhwa Yun
      Pages: 147 - 172
      Abstract: Abstract Given the importance of knowledge sharing, we integrated a social exchange perspective to understand when individuals may or may not share their knowledge. Considering personal and relational factors, we suggest that a subordinate’s exchange ideology and LMX are significant predictors of knowledge sharing. More importantly, we propose that the dynamic interplay between supervisor-subordinate exchange ideologies is critical to determine the level of LMX and knowledge sharing via LMX. Our research highlights the importance of relational and social exchange perspective to understand the quality of LMX and subordinates’ knowledge sharing behaviors. Implications for research and management practices are discussed.

  • The influence of CEO relationship-focused behaviors on firm performance: A
           chain-mediating role of employee relations climate and employees’
           attitudes
    • Authors: Meng Xi; Shuming Zhao; Qin Xu
      Pages: 173 - 192
      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the inner influencing mechanism and boundary conditions of the association between CEO relationship-focused leadership behaviors and organizational performance. Using data from top managers, HR directors, and operational level employees at 286 companies in seven provinces of China, this paper finds that CEO relationship-focused leadership behaviors have a positive effect on organizational performance. Specifically, CEO relationship-focused leadership behaviors relate directly and positively to firm performance in organically-structured firms and indirectly and positively to firm performance in mechanistically-structured firms via the chain-mediating role of employee relations climate and employees’ attitudes. The findings offer theoretical contributions to the leadership and employee relations climate literature and provide practical value to Chinese enterprises.

  • The role of dual embeddedness and organizational learning in subsidiary
           development
    • Authors: Ming Pu; Pek-Hooi Soh
      Abstract: Abstract We investigate how subsidiaries exploit the knowledge flows embedded in internal and external networks and support their development in terms of scope (breadth of functional operations) and competence (ability to perform specific activities). We argue that individual subsidiaries have different organizational learning processes, which would influence the way subsidiaries evolve and manage multiple sources of knowledge and adapt their knowledge structure and routines systematically for subsidiary-wide development. Our analysis of 81 foreign-owned subsidiaries in China shows that subsidiary competence is enhanced by the knowledge arising from MNC networks whereas subsidiary scope depends on the knowledge embedded in the host environments. Moreover, organizational learning affects the way knowledge adapted from internal embeddedness but not external embeddedness. These findings imply that foreign subsidiaries must effectively cope with increased flows of distant knowledge within MNC networks while maintaining their location-specific advantage. The different outcomes of subsidiary development add a nuanced understanding of the relationship between dual embeddedness and subsidiary development.

  • Family values and inter-institutional governance of strategic decision
           making in Indian family firms
    • Authors: Joseph Lampel; Ajay Bhalla; Kavil Ramachandran
      Abstract: Abstract In this paper we use new venture creation in Indian family firms to explore the family firm as an inter-institutional system. We argue that in societies where the traditional family dominates social and economic life, the relationship between the two institutions, the firm and the family, is managed via inter-institutional logics. These inter-institutional logics help reconcile the tensions that often arise in the family firms during strategic decision making. We use archival and interview data on 36 new ventures in eight Indian family firms to identify these logics. Our analysis shows that the interaction between firm and family institutional logics in Indian family firms generates four sub-logics: economic, expertise, reputation and attachment. These four logics are used to frame and screen new venture opportunities and justify resource allocation.

  • Whipping into shape: Construct definition, measurement, and validation of
           directive-achieving leadership in Chinese culture
    • Authors: Tingting Chen; Fuli Li; Kwok Leung
      Abstract: Abstract Based on Confucian thought, this research theorizes a new form of hierarchical approach to leadership in Chinese culture. This leadership concept, termed as directive-achieving leadership, reflects the Confucian juxtaposition of hierarchical control with a training and achieving focus. Study 1 developed a measure for this leadership style and found evidence of its construct validity. In Study 2, we collected three-wave, multi-source data from 208 employees and their immediate supervisors working in a large state-owned group corporation located in China. This study examined how directive-achieving leadership affects subordinate job performance, in comparison with authoritarian leadership. Our findings revealed that directive-achieving leadership had a positive mediated relationship with subordinate job performance through role clarity and cognition-based trust. By contrast, authoritarian leadership showed no effect on the role clarity, trust, or job performance of subordinates. We discuss the implications of the hierarchical approach to leadership in the Chinese context and provide directions for future research.

  • Why do high-performance human resource practices matter for team
           creativity? The mediating role of collective efficacy and knowledge
           sharing
    • Authors: Zixiang Ma; Lirong Long; Yong Zhang; Junwei Zhang; Catherine K. Lam
      Abstract: Abstract Drawing on the ability-motivation-opportunity framework, we develop a multilevel model examining the relationship between high-performance human resource practices and team creativity. Based on an input-process-output perspective, we hypothesize that both ability-enhancing human resource practices and motivation-enhancing practices affect team creativity via team efficacy, while motivation-enhancing practices and opportunity-enhancing practices affect team creativity via knowledge sharing. We verify our hypotheses using data collected from 16 Chinese companies involving 80 work teams. The results show that team efficacy mediates the relationship between ability-enhancing practices and team creativity, and knowledge sharing mediates the relationship between motivation-enhancing practices and team creativity. Theoretical and practical implications for human resource management practices and team creativity are discussed.

  • Are prosocially motivated employees more committed to their organization?
           The roles of supervisors’ prosocial motivation and perceived corporate
           social responsibility
    • Authors: Bo Shao; Pablo Cardona; Isabel Ng; Raymond N. C. Trau
      Abstract: Abstract How to enhance prosocial employees’ commitment to their organizations is of both theoretical and practical importance. The present study argues that a high level of organizational commitment in prosocial employees is predicted by bipartite synergy between employees’ prosocial motivations and their supervisors’ prosocial motivations, between employees’ prosocial motivations and their organizations’ prosocial orientations, and tripartite synergy among all three. Polynomial regressions and hierarchical regression analyses are undertaken on data collected from a sample of 216 full-time employees in China. The results show that perceived fit between employees and supervisors’ prosocial motivations (i.e., person-supervisor [PS] fit) is positively related to employees’ organizational commitment (i.e., there is bipartite synergy between employees and supervisors’ prosocial motivations). Perceived corporate social responsibility (CSR) moderates the relationship between employees’ prosocial motivations and their organizational commitment such that when employees’ prosocial motivations and perceived CSR are both high (as opposed to when either or both are low), their organizational commitment is stronger (i.e., there is bipartite synergy between employees’ prosocial motivations and CSR). Furthermore, perceived CSR moderates the relationship between PS fit in relation to prosocial motivations and organizational commitment. Notably, organizational commitment is strongest when there is a strong alignment among employees’ prosocial motivations, supervisors’ prosocial motivations, and CSR (i.e., there is tripartite synergy among employees’ prosocial motivations, supervisors’ prosocial motivations, and CSR). The theoretical contributions and practical implications of this study are discussed.

  • Learning breakdown in latecomer multinational enterprises
    • Authors: Xiaowen Tian
      Abstract: Abstract Integrating the linkage, leverage, and learning (LLL) model with institutional economics, this paper develops a moderated mediation framework to examine the relationship between internationalization and the performance of multinational enterprises from latecomer economies (latecomer MNEs). In the framework, whether a latecomer MNE may succeed in learning and knowledge-led profit gains from internationalization is contingent on the development of market-oriented institutions in the country in which it is based. Latecomer MNEs based in countries with a high level of the development of market-oriented institutions are likely to succeed in learning to obtain knowledge-led profit gains from internationalization. Latecomer MNEs based in countries with a low level of the development of market-oriented institutions are likely to experience a breakdown in learning, and a failure in knowledge-led profit gains from internationalization. This paper provides robust evidence on the relationship between internationalization and the performance of latecomer MNEs conditional on the development of market-oriented institutions in their home countries, and discusses strategic implications for latecomer MNE managers.

  • Behind film performance in China’s changing institutional context:
           The impact of signals
    • Authors: Caroline Elliott; Palitha Konara; Haiyi Ling; Chengang Wang; Yingqi Wei
      Abstract: Abstract Grounded in signaling theory, this paper investigates the signals reflecting product quality, innovativeness, reputation and cultural background which influence film performance, that is, film survival (duration on cinema screen) and box office success, in China’s changing institutional context. This market has grown substantially and still possesses potential for further development. However, China’s unique institutional context presents challenges. By examining an expanded range of potential signals, two of which have not previously been examined in the literature, namely imported films and enhanced format film formats such as 3D and IMAX, we develop a conceptual framework and argue that signaling theory needs to be combined with institutional context. Similar to findings for film industries in other countries, we find quality and reputational signals including budget, star power, sequels, and online consumer reviews to be important in China. However, unique results are also revealed. Chinese consumers react to an innovativeness signal in that they are specifically attracted to enhanced format films. Film award nominations and prizes are insignificant reputational signals. Once other signals are taken into account, imported films on average do not perform as well as domestic films. We link these findings to China’s unique institutional setting and offer important implications for management, recognizing the challenges to film companies of competing in an increasingly globalized market. This paper is also of relevance to policymakers given their continued efforts in shaping the development of China’s film industry.

  • When it rains, it pours: A triple-pathway model of collective turnover
           based on causal mapping analysis
    • Authors: Song Wang; Bowen Dong; Steven X. Si; Junsheng Dou
      Abstract: Abstract As modern organizations become increasingly knowledge intensive, collective turnover, a phenomenon of knowledge spillover or transfer, is gradually receiving greater attention from scholars. Given that most studies have focused on the detrimental organizational consequences of collective turnover, this paper proposes a relational perspective to explore three distinct process models of dispersed, translocated, and entrepreneurial collective turnover. Based on a causal mapping analysis conducted in China of 25 collective turnover events that can demonstrate complex turnover processes over time, this study found that dispersed collective turnover, in which a group of members quit and scatter, is more likely to be triggered by shared job dissatisfaction. While translocated collective turnover, in which organizational members collectively mobilize in the same organization, is highly associated with attractive external lures. In contrast, entrepreneurial collective turnover, in which a group of members leave to start a new business together, is developed through a group process of entrepreneurial passion contagion. The ensuing triple-pathway model helps to enrich the theoretical understanding of collective turnover by clarifying the contextual differences regarding the effects of turnover destination on the important process of collective turnover.

  • CEO values, stakeholder culture, and stakeholder-based performance
    • Authors: Lu Jiao; Graeme Harrison; Maria Cadiz Dyball; Jinhua Chen
      Abstract: Abstract This study examines how CEO values affect organizational performance. We examine organizational performance in terms of stakeholder-based performance (SBP) comprising four components of quality of goods and services, organizational justice, stakeholder affiliation and opportunity cost; and focus on one key CEO value orientation, specifically whether CEOs are “self-interested” or “other-regarding” in interactions with organizational stakeholders. We also hypothesize that the effect of CEO values on SBP is not direct, but indirect through the mediating factor of stakeholder culture. Data from 621 CEOs of not-for-profit (NFP) organizations in Australia are collected through a mail-based survey questionnaire, and analysed using structural equation modeling. The results support our hypotheses and have implications for organizational managers in creating and distributing stakeholder value in NFP organizations and potentially beyond the NFP context, as well as for future research concerned with how ethical characteristics of top managers affect organizational success.

  • Responding to emotions in China: Gender differences and the emotion-job
           outcome relationship
    • Authors: Kelly Z. Peng
      Abstract: Abstract The role of emotion in the workplace has received increasing research attention in the past three decades. Yet there is relatively little direct evidence showing the relationships between discrete emotions and employee attitudinal and behavioral outcomes such as commitment, satisfaction, performance and citizenship behaviors. In this study, empirical data were collected to show that jealousy, joy, and fear experienced in the workplace impact employee outcomes. Furthermore, due to Chinese cultural factors that encourage females’ responses to jealousy, women are expected to be less ambitious with respect to work achievements in reacting to jealousy. Thus the jealousy-job outcomes relationships will be stronger and the joy-job outcomes relationships will be weaker for Chinese females as opposed to the male employees. This expectation receives some support from a sample of 174 male-female pairs of employees and their supervisors in China.

  • The home country of the MNE: The case of emerging economy firms
    • Authors: Bersant Hobdari; Peter Gammeltoft; Jing Li; Klaus Meyer
      Abstract: Abstract Research on multinational enterprises that originate from emerging economies has highlighted the importance of the home country for firms’ strategies of internationalization. In this paper, we outline a simple analytical framework linking institutions and resource munificence in the home country to the domestic business eco-system in an emerging economy, and thereby to strategies of outward investments. Specifically, we argue that businesses interact with each other in their home economy, and these patterns of interactions influence strategies of internationalization as companies not only compete with each other, but share resources, coordinate actions and serve as each other’s role model. Strategies of outward investment thus reflect the competition and collaboration in their home country business eco-system.

  • Family business, innovation and organizational slack in Taiwan
    • Authors: Yunshi Liu; Yi-Jung Chen; Linda C. Wang
      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the effect of family ownership and unabsorbed organizational slack resources on innovation in high-tech firms in Taiwan. In a sample of 278 public Taiwanese firms over a period of seven years (2002–2008) representing a total of 1946 observations, firms with higher levels of family ownership were shown to have significantly lower internal innovation in terms of R&D investment as has been shown in a number of previous studies. Yet the research also identified a key moderating factor. Unabsorbed organizational slack moderated the relationship between family ownership and innovation. Specifically, when firms had high levels of unabsorbed slack, the relationship between family ownership and R&D intensity changed to positive. In addition, the Taiwan data showed an additional moderating relationship of organizational slack; a negative relationship between family ownership and royalty payment intensity emerged for firms with low-level unabsorbed slack. Royalty payments and purchases of technology are often associated with lower innovation in firms, and Taiwan high-tech firms with additional slack did focus more on innovation through higher R&D and lower external technology royalty payments.
