  • 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.

  • Does business group affiliation encourage R&D activities'
           Evidence from India
    • Authors: Surenderrao Komera; P. J. Jijo Lukose; Subash Sasidharan
      Abstract: Abstract The decision to undertake investment in innovative activities is an important strategic choice made by firms. This study investigates the relationship between business group (BG) affiliation and research & development (R&D) activities of Indian firms. Using an empirical approach that accounts for endogeneity and selection bias, we observe that BG affiliation has significant positive influence on the sample firms’ R&D activities. Employing various proxies for institutional development, we show that the effect of BG affiliation on R&D declines with the improvements in institutional and regulatory mechanisms. Further, this study explores the linkages between diversification strategies at the group level and R&D investments by firms affiliated with BGs. Results show that degree of related diversification is positively associated with the affiliates’ innovation efforts.

  • 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
      Abstract: 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.

  • Internationalization of latecomer firms from emerging economies—The role
           of resultant and autonomous learning
    • Authors: Pradeep Kanta Ray; Sangeeta Ray; Vikas Kumar
      Abstract: Abstract This study tests the prescience of John Mathews’ linkage-leverage-learning (LLL) model to explain internationalization by latecomer firms (LFs)—set in an evolutionary backdrop. The hypothesis harbored in this study is that while LLL explains how LFs initially compete in international markets, it is autonomous learning, independent of LLL that is crucial to internationalization. We used panel data from 1994 to 2012 with 821 observations from 69 firms and performed multiple econometric analyses to test our hypotheses. Our results suggest that autonomous learning rather than resource leverage and learning through linkages with MNCs explain the success of Indian pharmaceutical LFs. LFs progress from being a recipient of knowledge in a global production network to a phase where they can become important contributors in the global innovation network. This study therefore demonstrates that LFs that invest in autonomous learning in addition to reaping advantages through their linkages with global innovators are the ones that are successful in their internationalization process and are able to become dominant players in the global market.

  • Changes in work values across the regions of China
    • Authors: David A. Ralston; Carolyn P. Egri; Charlotte M. Karam; Yongjuan Li; Ping Ping Fu
      Abstract: 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.

  • Institutional distance and knowledge acquisition in international
           buyer-supplier relationships: The moderating role of trust
    • Authors: Mia Hsiao-Wen Ho; Pervez N. Ghauri; Jorma A. Larimo
      Abstract: Abstract Institutional distance can generate expanded opportunities for multinational firms to facilitate learning and responsiveness. However, such distance can also create obstacles regarding knowledge transfer and integration. A theoretical puzzle concerns the mechanisms and conditions in which international buyers and suppliers can overcome institutional distance and acquire new knowledge. We develop an integrative moderated-mediation model in which institutional distance prevents parties from accessing knowledge but, when knowledge is obtained and mutual trust is developed, it promotes cross-border knowledge acquisition in international buyer-supplier exchange, particularly between international firms and firms from the Asia Pacific region. These findings indicate that firms can overcome the challenges of regulative and cognitive distance and facilitate access to knowledge and knowledge acquisition when they are able to develop and cultivate relationships of mutual trust with foreign partners. While normative distance may create learning incentives and opportunities in international buyer-supplier relationships, its impacts on knowledge accessibility and acquisition are insignificant.

  • Exploring China’s state-led FDI model: Evidence from the extractive
           sectors in Latin America
    • Authors: Daniel M. Shapiro; Carlos Vecino; Jing Li
      Abstract: 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.

  • Planning to improvise' The role of reasoning in the strategy process:
           Evidence from Malaysia
    • Authors: Paul Hughes; Ian R. Hodgkinson; Darwina Arshad; Mathew Hughes; Vitor Leone
      Abstract: Abstract Planning and improvisation are depicted as alternate decision-making orientations in the strategy process literature, executed by two parallel cognitive contexts: rational or intuitive, but can rationality and intuition be harmonized in the strategy process' Strategic managers may not have to choose to either plan or improvise, rather there is a need to shift the focus of research from such trade-offs to paradoxical thinking. Drawing on survey data from Malaysian research-intensive firms, we investigate how strategy develops through managers’ strategic reasoning under key external (market turbulence) and internal (centralization, manager level) contingencies. In contrast to common assumptions in the management literature, we find that both rational and intuitive reasoning can drive planning and improvisation for firms in emerging economies, with additional positive moderation effects under centralization and manager level. Firms that achieve high levels of both planning and improvisation concurrently are characterized by significantly greater rationality relative to the high planning group and the high improvisation group. The findings extend strategy process research, highlighting how firms in emerging economies differ from theory derived from developed economies.

  • Development of human resource management in Vietnam: A semantic analysis
    • Authors: Diep Thi Ngoc Nguyen; Stephen T. T. Teo; Marcus Ho
      Abstract: 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.

  • Political hazards and entry modes of Chinese investments in Africa
    • Authors: Jane Wenzhen Lu; Wen Li; Aiqi Wu; Xueli Huang
      Abstract: 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.

  • The intra-firm knowledge transfer in the outward M&A of EMNCs:
           Evidence from Chinese manufacturing firms
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper examines the intra-firm transfer of tacit and explicit knowledge in the post-acquisition integration stage in the outward mergers and acquisitions (M&A) of multinational corporations from emerging economies (EMNCs). It also explores rationales underlying the tacit and explicit knowledge transfer in the cross-cultural context. Drawing from the empirical evidence of three Chinese firms’ outward M&A in three European countries, we argue the Chinese acquiring firms emphasized the transfer of explicit over tacit knowledge in the post-acquisition integration in their outward M&A. This can be attributed to complementarity in explicit knowledge, home market advantage, scarcity of key staff and cultural differences.

  • 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.
