  • Globalization, entrepreneurship and paradox thinking
    • Authors: Shameen Prashantham; Mariya Eranova; Carole Couper
      Pages: 1 - 9
      Abstract: Globalization has been facing a backlash. By contrast, entrepreneurship has come to be seen as a panacea for economic development and generating jobs that are perceived to be under threat from globalization. In this Perspectives paper, our central argument is that globalization and entrepreneurship must be viewed holistically, recognizing that globalization is an enabler of important entrepreneurship outcomes. We argue that networks created as a byproduct of globalization facilitate various forms of entrepreneurship. Interpersonal networks (e.g., diasporas) facilitate transnational entrepreneurship which can, in turn, reduce institutional distance between locations. Interorganizational networks (e.g., MNE-orchestrated ecosystems) facilitate technology entrepreneurship which reinforces the institutional work that gives rise to new technological domains and fields. Intergovernmental and civil society networks facilitate social entrepreneurship which helps redress institutional voids. Thus globalization can be a force for good by enabling forms of entrepreneurship that enable important institutional change. We highlight the importance of paradox thinking, which is rooted in ancient Chinese philosophy, in transcending an either/or perspective of globalization and entrepreneurship.

  • Exploring China’s state-led FDI model: Evidence from the extractive
           sectors in Latin America
    • Authors: Daniel M. Shapiro; Carlos Vecino; Jing Li
      Pages: 11 - 37
      Abstract: Our study explores an under-examined way in which the Chinese government supports outward foreign direct investment (OFDI): state supported development loans to host countries. Through such loans, the Chinese government develops commercial and diplomatic relationships with host countries, which in turn facilitate Chinese firms’ access to natural resources while at the same time limiting their exposure to host country political risk. We provide evidence in Latin America that although Chinese OFDI occurs in countries where government-related political risk is high, Chinese firms are less likely to be involved in public disputes with the host government. However, they are more likely to engage in conflicts with nongovernment stakeholders. Thus, while the Chinese government may assist in obtaining a political or legal license to operate, Chinese firms appear to have more difficulty obtaining a social license to operate, suggesting that the Chinese model has limits, notably with respect to mitigating social risks.

  • Political hazards and entry modes of Chinese investments in Africa
    • Authors: Jane Wenzhen Lu; Wen Li; Aiqi Wu; Xueli Huang
      Pages: 39 - 61
      Abstract: Africa has achieved the fastest growth rate of inward foreign direct investment (FDI) recently. Yet heightened political hazards present substantial challenges to foreign firms in Africa. This study examines the entry strategies that firms may take to mitigate such hazards by exploring the relationship between political hazards and entry mode choices in Africa. We further consider how an investing firm’s host country experience and foreign aid provided by its home country government to host countries in Africa can influence this relationship. In a sample of listed Chinese firms’ investments in Africa from 2000 to 2014, we find that Chinese firms tend to use the joint venture mode when political hazards are high in an African country. This relationship is weakened when they accumulate host country experience and when the Chinese government’s foreign aid to an African country increases. Our findings point to firm-level strategies to mitigate political hazards as well as instruments available to home country governments to help their multinational firms operating in host countries characterized by unstable political environments.

  • Behind film performance in China’s changing institutional context:
           The impact of signals
    • Authors: Caroline Elliott; Palitha Konara; Haiyi Ling; Chengang Wang; Yingqi Wei
      Pages: 63 - 95
      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.

  • Flying or dying' Organizational change, customer participation, and
           innovation ambidexterity in emerging economies
    • Authors: Man Chen; Zhi Yang; Wenyu Dou; Feng Wang
      Pages: 97 - 119
      Abstract: In emerging economies, organizational change is both a difficult challenge and a common phenomenon for high-tech firms. Change can enhance adaptability and leverage knowledge based on dynamic capability perspective, but it can also increase coordination costs and—according to the organizational inertia perspective—prompt conflict. Existing findings about the effect of organizational change on firm performance are inconsistent. Accordingly, this survey study of 213 firms in the Chinese high-tech industry investigates the curvilinear and differential effects of technical and administrative organizational change, as moderated by customer participation and innovation ambidexterity. The results reveal that the effects of technical and administrative change are both U-shaped. At a low level of change, increasing technical or administrative change hinders firm performance, but as the levels increase beyond a critical point, the effect of change becomes positive. Although customer participation strengthens the effect of technical change on firm performance, both customer participation and innovation ambidexterity attenuate the effect of administrative change on firm performance.

  • Moral judgment in a business setting: The role of managers’ moral
           foundation, ideology, and level of moral development
    • Authors: Fuan Li; Mike Chen-ho Chao; Nancy Yi-feng Chen; Sixue Zhang
      Pages: 121 - 143
      Abstract: Despite the extensive research conducted on moral judgment, the role of moral foundations in moral judgment in business has largely been overlooked. Motivated by the increasing concern about the ethical issues observed in China, this study aims to examine the impact of moral foundations on Chinese managers’ moral judgment while simultaneously looking into the role of moral ideology and the level of managers’ moral development. A sample survey was conducted in Shanghai, China, which involved 451 practicing business managers who were pursuing their MBA degree in a nearby university at the time of data collection. Both structural equation modeling (SEM) and hierarchical regression were used in data analyses. The results reveal that individualizing moral foundations and moral idealism have significant positive impacts on moral judgment. Moreover, the findings indicate that moral relativism and levels of mangers’ moral development moderate the relationship between individualizing moral foundations and moral judgment with the impact of individualizing moral foundations being stronger when managers’ relativism is low rather high or when their moral development is high than it is low. The managerial implications of the research and future research direction are discussed.

  • Changes in work values across the regions of China
    • Authors: David A. Ralston; Carolyn P. Egri; Charlotte M. Karam; Yongjuan Li; Ping Ping Fu
      Pages: 145 - 179
      Abstract: This study examines changes in values of Chinese professionals across high, moderate, and low development regions between 1993/94 and 2004/05 and as such explores values in China’s recent past. The 1993/94 to 2004/05 period was crucial during China’s evolution from a socialist state to one more open to capitalism. The foundation of our investigation is crossvergence theory, which we extend by developing a multilevel-crossvergence perspective of national and regional influences on work values/behaviors. We test hypotheses specific to national-level and to regional-level changes in the importance of individualism, collectivism, and Confucianism values. Our study demonstrates that differences in hypothesized predictions result from the level on which a study is focused. This, in turn, results in differing support for study findings, which is a significant limitation of single-level studies. In sum, this study reveals the importance of delving beneath the national-level to gain a more fine-grained, regional-level understanding of values evolution in China. This is a finding that we believe may generalize to other countries, in particular, developing countries.

  • Female leadership in contemporary Chinese family firms
    • Authors: Shihui Chen; Hanqing Chevy Fang; Niall G. MacKenzie; Sara Carter; Ling Chen; Bingde Wu
      Pages: 181 - 211
      Abstract: Drawing on a case study of a three-generation family business, this paper explores the antecedents and consequences of female leadership in contemporary Chinese family business. Our findings suggest that institutional change in contemporary China affects the role of female family members in the family system, which eventually gave rise to female leadership in China’s family businesses. We also propose that in comparison to male leadership, female leadership in Chinese family business is more concerned with balancing work-family conflict; more dependent upon the family’s endowment of resources; and more likely to favor a participative (rather than authoritative) decision-making style.

  • A conceptual review of human resource management research and practice in
           Taiwan with comparison to select economies in East Asia
    • Authors: Shu-Yuan Chen; Chih-Hsun Chuang; Shyh-jer Chen
      Pages: 213 - 239
      Abstract: Human resources are increasingly crucial to the growing economies of East Asia, which are striving to diversify economically toward higher value-added product-markets to continue their growth. Human resource management (HRM) in Taiwan, based on Confucianism and influenced by Western management research and practice, has been experiencing a major paradigm shift of sorts in recent years. With Taiwan’s rapid economic growth followed by its industrial and institutional transformation, HRM in the region has been developing to cope with the increasingly competitive and fast-changing business world. As such, this study reviews HRM’s development in Taiwan over the recent decades. The reviewed studies were gathered from work published from 1990 to 2016 appearing in the Social Sciences Citation Index or Taiwan Social Sciences Citation Index Chinese journals. A detailed discussion of HRM development in Taiwan is made, along with a summarizing scheme and some comparison to HRM in other select economies in East Asia, including those of Mainland China and Hong Kong which share the same cultural lineage and values.

  • Development of human resource management in Vietnam: A semantic analysis
    • Authors: Diep Thi Ngoc Nguyen; Stephen T. T. Teo; Marcus Ho
      Pages: 241 - 284
      Abstract: The present study offers a logical understanding of the development of human resource management (HRM) in Vietnam over the past 30 years. While previous studies have examined the adoption of HR practices, there remains a need to understand the current state of HRM development in Vietnam. Using a semantic analysis approach, we systematically analyzed the themes and concepts from 100 journal articles related to HRM in Vietnam, selected from academic databases between 1984 and 2013. The main study findings show that the development of HRM is associated with the key stages of economic development in Vietnam.

  • The early adulthood of the Asia Pacific Journal of Management : A
           literature review 2005–2014
    • Authors: Cristina López-Duarte; Marta M. Vidal-Suárez; Belén González-Díaz
      Abstract: This research represents a comprehensive review of the articles published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Management (APJM) between 2005 and 2014, the journal’s early “adulthood.” It provides an overview of the evolution of this body of research across different dimensions: types of articles, international scope of the research, contributing scholars and institutions, scientific collaboration and non-academic cooperation paths as APJM developed as an Academy of Management associated journal. It also analyzes the impact of its published articles on the research field—based on traditional direct, indirect, and weighted impact measurements as well as on alternative metrics—and the journal’s performance. APJM’s early adulthood was featured by rapid and positive changes in terms of numbers, reach, international scope, scientific collaboration, article impact, and overall journal performance. Furthermore, the journal is currently ranked among the better management journals worldwide and has become the first among all management journals with a declared regional focus. Some hurdles remain and new challenges must be faced; among them, increasing the volume of conceptual works and developing the journal’s scope by publishing a higher number of pieces of research dealing with organization and management issues relevant from a global (not only regional) perspective and continuing the journal’s general improvement and growth.

  • Efficiency-centered, innovation-enabling business models of high tech
           SMEs: Evidence from Hong Kong
    • Authors: Mark Loon; Roy Chik
      Abstract: High-technology small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are compelled to innovate to differentiate themselves from their competitors but at the same time be efficient, as they do not have economies of scale enjoyed by larger organizations. This qualitative study explores this paradoxical challenge faced by Hong Kong SMEs in designing their business model to strike such a balance. In doing so, it investigates the competencies of these firms in technology management and their innovation practices. It is found that third-party technologies that subscribe to international standards play a prominent role in the SME’s technology repertoire, as they are keen to leverage upon the effects of network externalities and other positive spillover effects. Although the firms’ business models enable product innovation, they also need to take efficiency into account to ensure that marketing and customer-intelligence are swiftly incorporated into their technology management and product development processes resulting in cyclic, incremental innovations. Our findings of efficiency-centered, innovation-enabling business models provide a more nuanced view of business model design in that efficiency and innovation need not be mutually exclusive. Four modalities of such business models are also identified: Focused, complementary, integrated innovation, and e-commerce-supported. These designs play an important role in enhancing product quality and performance, reducing time to market, developing new markets, and improving customer relationship and satisfaction.

  • Performance of foreign subsidiaries “in” and “from” Asia: A
           review, synthesis and research agenda
    • Authors: Tao Bai; Jialin Du; Angelo M. Solarino
      Abstract: The performance of foreign subsidiaries (FS) has been the topic of studies since the beginning of the international business (IB) field. However, research findings are contradictory because of the disparate foci of individual studies. In this review paper, we first identify key determinants of the performance of FS through a structured content analysis of 73 articles and 679 relationships since the year 2000. Second, we explain the effects of each determinant, and perform meta-analysis to determine which relationships are statistically meaningful. Third, we compare the effects of determinants across different combinations of home and host contexts, based on which, we provide possible explanations of previous inconsistent findings. We conclude by offering new theoretical directions to better understand determinants of the performance of FS.

  • Outbound linkage and inbound leverage for emerging multinationals: A
           signaling theory perspective
    • Authors: Haifeng Yan; Juan Wang; Ping Deng
      Abstract: Despite the rise of interest in emerging market multinationals (EMNEs), the question of whether outward foreign direct investment (FDI) influences their resource acquisition in home countries remains underexplored. Contrary to the prior literature, which contends that EMNEs build outbound linkage through outward FDI so as to leverage outbound resources, this paper, however, focuses on whether outbound linkage influences their inbound resource leverage from home countries as well. Drawing on signaling theory, we propose that outbound linkage to developed countries, developing countries, and tax havens via outward FDI may reflect EMNEs’ different quality and prospects, which in turn influence their inbound leverage of government, financial, and market resources, respectively. Using panel data of 581 Chinese listed firms during the period 2002–2012, we largely verified our hypotheses, thus extending the boundary of the consequences of outward FDI on EMNEs in the signaling theory perspective.

  • Emotions, indigenous affective ties, and social network theory—The
           case of South Korea
    • Authors: Inju Yang; Sven Horak
      Abstract: This study conceptually explores the structural and emotional aspects of informal social networks in South Korea by examining the indigenous concepts of jeong, woori, inmaek, and yongo in relation to the theories of social networks, social capital, and social exchange. We suggest extending extant knowledge of the latter by pursuing the geocentric integration of Eastern and Western schools of thought on crucial elements of social networks, chiefly by focusing on affective characteristics compared to the conventional and dominant focus on cognitive characteristics. Moreover, we highlight the dualistic nature of informal ties by adapting the notions of yin-yang and zhongyong. Based on the results of our analysis, we suggest explicitly integrating interpersonal affection and the role of emotions as the constituting elements of social network development and cohesion.

  • The relevance of inter-personal ties and inter-organizational tie strength
           for outcomes of research collaborations in South Korea
    • Authors: Martin Hemmert
      Abstract: Inter-personal ties have long been recognized as relevant not only for interaction between individuals, but also for knowledge transfer and other important outcomes of business activities. This applies in particular to East Asian countries such as South Korea where informal social networks are widely prevalent in business and society. However, less is known about their role in inter-organizational collaboration efforts, such as research collaborations. This exploratory study examines the relevance of inter-personal ties and inter-organizational tie strength for interaction quality and outcomes of research collaborations in South Korea. Two types of research collaborations are studied: new product development (NPD) collaborations between companies and university-industry research collaborations (UICs). Inter-personal ties are found in a majority of both types of collaborations being studied. However, whereas inter-organizational tie strength is positively related to outcomes of these research collaborations, inter-personal ties are not. Managers should thus not primarily rely on inter-personal ties for partner selection and the management of research collaborations.

  • Ownership structure and the use of non-family executives in
           family-dominated Chinese listed firms: An institutional logics perspective
    • Authors: Dean Xu; Chuang Chen; Xiaohui Wu
      Abstract: To investigate the use of non-family versus family executives in family-dominated, publicly listed firms, we consider ownership concentration both at the firm level and within the dominant family. Whereas the appointment of family executives is supported by an institutional logic of family control, the use of non-family, professional executives is guided by a shareholder logic. We suggest that higher levels of ownership held by the dominant family relative to other shareholders propel family owners to adopt the family logic, and higher levels of ownership held by the largest family owner relative to other family members weaken the family logic in favor of the shareholder logic. We test our hypotheses on a sample of 2174 firm-year observations covering 635 family-dominated Chinese entrepreneurial firms listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. Statistical results indicate that ownership by family increases, and ownership concentration in family decreases, the use of non-family CEO and non-family top management team.

  • An institutional response model to economic liberalization: Japanese
           MNEs’ ownership choices in China
    • Authors: Megan Min Zhang; Paul W. Beamish
      Abstract: This study investigates how Japanese MNEs are adapting their ownership choices to accommodate China’s economic liberalization. Drawing upon the institution-based view of the firm, we propose an institutional response model that is simultaneously based on the progress of economic liberalization and the accumulation of subsidiary experience. This model suggests that Japanese MNEs increasingly adopt higher ownership levels in their subsidiaries because of the combined effects of deepening deregulation on foreign investments, declining pure uncertainty, and increasing contingent uncertainty during economic liberalization. It also suggests that the progress of economic liberalization continuously changes the combination of the two types of institutional uncertainty (pure and contingent), contextualizing the influence of subsidiary experience on Japanese MNEs’ ownership choices. Using data for Japanese investments in China between 1991 and 2013, we construct a latent growth-curve model to provide empirical evidence for the proposed institutional response model.

  • Foundation of leadership in Asia: Leader characteristics and leadership
           styles review and research agenda
    • Authors: Haeyoung Koo; Choelsoon Park
      Abstract: Leader characteristics influence leadership styles, which cascade down through the management to the entire firm, affecting organizational and strategic outcomes. Asia’s unique socio-cultural contexts and philosophies breed indigenous leadership styles in the region, yet context-specific research on leader characteristics and leadership styles in Asia has been sparse. Our review answers the call to identify the distinct Asian context that has distinguished the leadership research in Asia from that of other regions. We identify power distance orientation and collectivist culture as the two of the most prominent contextual factors to consider in examining the role of leadership in Asia. Through this review, we aim to further our understanding of the current state of extant literature on leader characteristics and leadership styles and to suggest new avenues for scholars in Asia to advance existing theories of leadership research in the arena of organizational behavior and strategy.

  • Paradigm development in Chinese management research: The role of research
    • Authors: Brian K. Boyd
      Abstract: Kuhn’s paradigm framework asserts that scholarly fields differ in their level of development, and that such differences will be reflected in research norms and practices. In particular, early stage subfields are expected to have less consensus regarding theory and methods, negatively affecting both the consistency and sophistication of research designs. We examine Kuhn’s framework in the context of a rapidly advancing subfield: Chinese management research. This paper reports a content analysis of China-based studies against a matched set of management articles, focusing on methodology. In partial support of the paradigm framework, we find many differences in several important research design characteristics. Additionally, consistent with expectations, many of these differences decline over time. Based on these findings, we discuss the applicability of Kuhn’s framework to management research, and also identify normative guidelines for the design of future Chinese management studies.
