  • One definition, different manifestations: Investigating ethical leadership
           in the Chinese context
    • Authors: An-Chih Wang; Jack Ting-Ju Chiang; Wan-Ju Chou; Bor-Shiuan Cheng
      Pages: 505 - 535
      Abstract: Abstract Although ethical leadership positively relates to a variety of favorable work outcomes across cultural settings, how national/societal culture potentially shapes the behavioral manifestations of ethical leadership remains unclear. In this paper, we investigate behavioral manifestations of ethical leadership in the Chinese context and develop the Chinese Ethical Leadership Scale (CELS). In Study 1, we use an indigenous, qualitative approach to investigate the nature of ethical leadership. Based on the qualitative findings, we develop the CELS, which consists of six important components of Chinese ethical leadership: moral courage, openness to criticism, incorruptibility, reliability, fairness, and role modeling. In Study 2, we empirically show that, after controlling for a Western ethical leadership scale, the six dimensions of Chinese ethical leadership predict various subordinate outcomes, including reporting of wrongdoing, cooperative voice, protection of company resources, conscientiousness, interpersonal harmony, and task performance. Based on our results, we propose a culturally integrated model of ethical leadership that elucidates both ethical and Chinese leadership literatures.

  • Whipping into shape: Construct definition, measurement, and validation of
           directive-achieving leadership in Chinese culture
    • Authors: Tingting Chen; Fuli Li; Kwok Leung
      Pages: 537 - 563
      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
    • Authors: Zixiang Ma; Lirong Long; Yong Zhang; Junwei Zhang; Catherine K. Lam
      Pages: 565 - 586
      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.

  • The genesis of fabless business model: Institutional entrepreneurs in an
           adaptive ecosystem
    • Authors: Sumita Sarma; Sunny Li Sun

      Abstract: Abstract How does an institutionally-contested business model originate, survive, and grow' What roles do institutional entrepreneurs play in the different stages of evolution of the business model' In the past four decades, the fabless model (which allows a semiconductor firm to operate without a fabrication unit) has changed the global semiconductor industry with significant impact in the Asian regions. In this paper, we trace the origin and evolution of the fabless model through a mixed-method approach, utilizing historic milestones, events, and financial data of publicly-traded semiconductor firms. We have applied theories of institutional entrepreneurship and adaptive ecosystem to identify four stages in this history: differentiation, mobilization, legitimization, and symbiosis to conceptualize the fabless model’s co-creation and co-evolution. Our findings indicate that actions of institutional entrepreneurs within specific temporal locations and structures played a crucial role in the fabless business model’s origin and co-evolution.

  • The sociality of resources: Understanding organizational competitive
           advantage from a social perspective
    • Authors: Lin Zhang; Xiaojun Zhang; Youmin Xi
      Pages: 619 - 648
      Abstract: Abstract This study investigates the influence of social structures on the meaning and value of resources. Although understanding resources from a sociological perspective is equally important for the competitive advantage of organizations, prior studies on what a resource is and how a resource becomes valuable have been conducted within an economic perspective. This study examines the meaning and value of resources within a social structure in order to extend the boundary conditions of existing research on resources. Based on a two-step content analysis of the meaning and value of resources in Chinese universities, this study identifies three types of social-oriented resources (resources that help organizations achieve social goals). These contrast with economic-oriented resources (resources that help organizations achieve economic goals) in markets. We also find three strategies that create the value of social-oriented resources. The findings regarding the meaning and value of social-oriented resources uncover the sociality of resources that complement the economic perspective and highlight the importance of understanding organizational competitive advantage from a sociological perspective.

  • It’s more complicated than we think: The implications of social
           capital on innovation
    • Authors: Sheng Wang; Rebecca Guidice; Yuanyuan Zhou; Zhong-Ming Wang
      Pages: 649 - 674
      Abstract: Abstract Researchers often focus on the positive implications of social capital, not recognizing that it may put the organizations at a competitive disadvantage if it limits access to other resources or discourages action. Based on findings from a large sample of Chinese manufacturers, the current study provides a more complete picture of the extent to which and under what conditions internal social capital fosters innovation and when it breaks down to limit performance. Results suggest a curvilinear relationship between internal social capital and innovation. Results also indicate that this curvilinear effect is strengthened by the extent to which employees share in the vision expressed by leaders. A moderation effect was also found with the extent to which there is alignment between the organization’s strategy and its human resource management (HRM). Innovation was greatest when both social capital and alignment were at moderate levels; a finding that suggests the HR department’s involvement in strategic planning, while necessary, may undermine the strategic flexibility needed for innovation when alignment is too great.

  • Venture capital reputation and portfolio firm performance in an emerging
           economy: The moderating effect of institutions
    • Authors: Runhui Lin; Ya Li; Tao Peng; Hongjuan Zhang
      Pages: 699 - 723
      Abstract: Abstract This paper addresses the effects of venture capitalist (VC) reputation on the performance of portfolio firms, and how this works in different institutional settings. Drawing on a dataset of 519 portfolio firms from China, we found that VC reputation does significantly increase the market value of portfolio firms in both the IPO year and the subsequent years. In addition, institutions moderate the relationship between VC reputation and portfolio firm performance such that the effect of VC reputation is positive and significant given extensive rule-based institutions, but insignificant given more relationship-based institutions. Our results provide empirical support for the impact of institutional factors such as market transparency and institutional efficiency on how venture capital firms can add value to invested portfolio firms.

  • Military top executives and corporate philanthropy: Evidence from China
    • Authors: Jin-hui Luo; Yuangao Xiang; Ruichao Zhu
      Pages: 725 - 755
      Abstract: Abstract This study, conducted in the context of China, investigates how the military experience of top executives influences their corporate philanthropy. Using a data set of 12,437 firm-year observations from China’s A-share firms listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges between 2004 and 2013, we found that firms run by military top executives significantly donate less than those led by non-military top executives. Moreover, the reduction effect of military experience on corporate philanthropy is found to be more pronounced for firms located in regions with less developed markets, especially when firms’ chairmen have military background. This may be because military top executives are reluctant to illegitimately use corporate philanthropy due to a strong sense of ethics gained from their military service experience. These results are robust after adopting the propensity score matching (PSM) method to tackle the potential sample selection bias. Our findings provide a new interpretation of military experience and have important implications for understanding corporate philanthropy in China and in emerging markets in general.

  • Explaining the entrepreneurial orientation–performance relationship in
           emerging economies: The intermediate roles of absorptive capacity and
    • Authors: Paul Hughes; Ian R. Hodgkinson; Mathew Hughes; Darwina Arshad
      Abstract: Abstract Research has established the relevance of entrepreneurial orientation (EO) to firm performance but skepticism remains because of the ambiguity surrounding how EO might improve firm performance. We examine the key concepts of absorptive capacity and improvisation as two alternative learning modes serving as intermediate steps between EO and firm performance. Locating our study within manufacturing SMEs in Malaysia, we find that absorptive capacity enhances the EO–performance relationship, both as a moderator and a mediator. In contrast to expectations, however, improvisation showed no such effects but conferred its own separate benefits instead. We further discuss the different effects of these learning modes on high performance and low performance groups.

  • Development of a Chinese measure on twelve basic emotions and a
           preliminary test on a two-dimensional model on emotions-job outcome
    • Authors: Yong Wang; Kelly Z. Peng; Yina Mao; Junbang Lan
      Abstract: Abstract The role of emotions in the workplace is getting more research attention in the past two decades. This is also true for research in the Chinese context recently. In this study, we attempt to develop a more comprehensive measurement scale for Chinese respondents, state-trait discrete emotions scale (STDES), to facilitate future research in the Chinese context. On top of scale development, with reference to the discrete emotions perspective and the exit, voice, loyalty and neglect (EVLN) classification of employee job outcomes, we propose a model with two dimensions for both discrete emotions and job outcomes: constructive versus destructive and active versus passive to further validate the scale. Empirically, we use a four-stage six-sample design to develop STDES and preliminarily test the two-dimensional model. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.

  • International business research output and rankings of Asia-Pacific
           universities: A 40-year time-series analysis
    • Authors: Rachida Aïssaoui; Michael J. Geringer
      Abstract: Abstract This study measures and ranks the performance of countries and academic institutions based on a 40-year analysis of publications appearing in 14 leading business and management journals. The focus is on the evolution of Asia-Pacific institutions in international business research output during this period. In addition, an examination is performed to identify factors associated with Asia-Pacific institutions that have achieved the highest rankings. This research shows that the Journal of International Business Studies and the Journal of World Business were central in spreading international business research, as well as in supporting research by authors from the Asia-Pacific region. Further, schools such as Harvard, Wharton, and University of South Carolina have maintained the highest ranks in research output throughout the 40-year period, but recent years have witnessed the emergence of the Chinese University of Hong Kong and University of Hong Kong, among others, in those top ranks.

  • Globalization, entrepreneurship and paradox thinking
    • Authors: Shameen Prashantham; Mariya Eranova; Carole Couper
      Abstract: 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.

  • Green human resource management research in emergence: A review and future
    • Authors: Shuang Ren; Guiyao Tang; Susan E. Jackson
      Abstract: Abstract The growing awareness of and regulations related to environmental sustainability have invoked the concept of green human resource management (GHRM) in the search for effective environmental management (EM) within organizations. GHRM research raises new, increasingly salient questions not yet studied in the broader human resource management (HRM) literature. Despite an expansion in the research linking GHRM with various aspects of EM and overall environmental performance, GHRM’s theoretical foundations, measurement, and the factors that give rise to GHRM (including when and how it influences outcomes) are still under-specified. This paper, seeking to better understand research opportunities and advance theoretical and empirical development, evaluates the emergent academic field of GHRM with a narrative review. This review highlights an urgent need for refined conceptualization and measurement of GHRM and develops an integrated model of the antecedents, consequences and contingencies related to GHRM. Going beyond a function-based perspective that focuses on specific HRM practices and building on advances in the strategic HRM literature, we discuss possible multi-level applications, the importance of employee perceptions and experiences related to GHRM, contextual and cultural implications, and alternative theoretical approaches. The detailed and focused review provides a roadmap to stimulate the development of the GHRM field for scholars and practicing managers.

  • Beyond institutional voids and the middle-income trap: The emerging
           business angel market in Malaysia
    • Authors: Richard Harrison; William Scheela; P. C. Lai; Sivapalan Vivekarajah
      Abstract: Abstract Emerging economies are characterized by the presence of institutional voids which challenge and constrain the behavior of economic agents. In this paper we report on one set of agents, angel investors, in Malaysia, which investors fear is experiencing a middle-income trap whereby economic growth and new venture formation stalls due to persistent institutional voids. This research addresses this question through interviews with 19 Malaysian business angel investors in 2015, utilizing a mixed-methods approach. Results indicate that business angels in our sample generated strong returns, though they did find it a challenge to invest in and monitor new ventures in a highly uncertain and competitive environment where there is high political uncertainty, weak legal and financial support for investors and SMEs. In order to overcome weak institutional support, business angel investors develop informal institutions by co-investing and networking with family members and government officials. They also conduct careful due diligence before investing and closely monitor their investee companies after investing. This research provides several theory and practice contributions with respect to business-angel investing in emerging economies with weak formal institutional regimes.

  • Entry-timing, business groups and early-mover advantage within industry
           merger waves in emerging markets: A study of Indian firms
    • Authors: Mohammad Fuad; Ashutosh Kumar Sinha
      Abstract: Abstract Merger waves are periods of intense and concentrated merger activity which exhibit a wave-like pattern. Drawing upon the resource-based view, we examine the timing of entry and early-mover advantage within merger waves. Following a robust simulation-based methodology of wave analysis, we identify merger waves in eight industries during the time period 2000–2014. Firms affiliated to business groups were found to be early movers. A higher degree of internationalization is also associated with early movement of a firm. Within business groups, their multi-entity character is positively associated with early entry whereas their board interlock was negatively related with entry-timing. Further, early moving acquirers reap superior post-acquisition performance, thereby suggesting that early-mover advantages exist within merger waves.

  • Incentive pay for non-executive directors: The direct and interaction
           effects on firm performance
    • Authors: Pattarin Adithipyangkul; T. Y. Leung
      Abstract: Abstract To improve corporate governance and firm performance, institutional investors and influential activists in the US recommend the use of incentive pay for non-executive directors. Policy makers in the UK and Australia, however, recommend against it. Motivated by stark contrast in the recommendations from these Anglo-Saxon countries, this paper investigates the impacts of incentive pay for non-executive directors on firm performance. The findings based on data from 178 listed Australian companies support both recommendations. Firm performance tends to be better when no incentive or high-power incentives are offered to non-executive directors than when low-power incentives are offered. This paper also investigates how incentive pay interacts with monitoring by large shareholders and debtholders to influence firm performance. This paper shows that large shareholder monitoring interacts negatively while debtholder monitoring interacts positively with incentive pay for non-executive directors to affect firm performance. Overall, the findings suggest that governance mechanisms recommended by agency theorists such as performance-contingent pay and monitoring can backfire if they are not designed properly. Both the direct and interaction effects should be considered when practitioners design corporate governance systems.

  • How perceived risk and return interacts with familism to influence
           individuals’ investment strategies: The case of capital seeking and
           capital providing behavior in new venture financing
    • Authors: Thomas A. Birtch; Kevin Yuk-fai Au; Flora F. T. Chiang; Peter S. Hofman
      Abstract: Abstract Drawing on social capital and agency theories and using a multi-study research design, this study examined how perceived risk and return interacts with familism to influence individuals’ investment strategies in new venture financing, both capital seeking and capital providing behavior. We found that individuals high in familism are more likely to seek capital from and provide capital to family members than non-family members for new ventures. However, such relationships are more complex than prior research suggests because when individuals’ risk and return perceptions are included these interact with familism to differentially influence capital financing behavior directed at family versus non-family members. Contributions to theory and potential avenues for future research are discussed.

  • What drives green banking disclosure' An institutional and corporate
           governance perspective
    • Authors: Sudipta Bose; Habib Zaman Khan; Afzalur Rashid; Shajul Islam
      Abstract: Abstract We examine the influence of regulatory guidance and other factors on the green banking disclosure practices of Bangladeshi commercial banks in the period from 2007 to 2014. We find that the issuance of green banking regulatory guidance by the Central Bank of Bangladesh in 2011 positively influences the level of green banking disclosure. We also report that green banking disclosure practices in the banking sector have converged over time and have become a routine process. In addition, we find that corporate governance mechanisms (e.g., board size and institutional ownership) positively affect the level of green banking disclosure. However, our study finds no relationship between the presence of independent directors on the board and green banking disclosure. These results have important implications for the government and other policy-makers.

  • Making impact through industry-focused research: An Asia Pacific
    • Authors: Hao Tan
      Abstract: Abstract This Perspectives paper draws attention to what I would call “industry-focused research” as an approach in management research that I believe can potentially contribute to the improvement of non-academic impact of the research. Industry-focused research refers to a type of studies in management that are based on an in-depth understanding of particular industry environments and that take account of the contextual details of the industries under investigation. Given that the industrial context in different locations tends to vary, industry-focused research can also contribute to the contextualization of management research in the Asia Pacific region.

  • Business group affiliation as institutional linkages in China’s emerging
           economy: A focus on organizational traits and institutional conditions
    • Authors: Xufei Ma; Jane Wenzhen Lu
      Abstract: Abstract We conceptualize business group affiliation as institutional linkages by integrating the resource-based view and institutional perspective to examine its direct and moderating effects on firm value in emerging economies. In a sample of 1233 Chinese listed companies, we find that while business group affiliation has mixed direct effects, it moderates the effects of organizational traits and institutional conditions on firm value. Specifically, group affiliation aggravates old firms’ “liability of oldness,” but helps mitigate large firms’ “liability of bigness.” Besides, business group affiliation can reduce the liabilities that institutional voids bring about, as evidenced in its moderating effects on the relationship between regional under-development/industrial restriction and firm value. Our findings point to the moderating effects of business group affiliation in emerging economies.
