  • Linking and leveraging resources for innovation and growth through
           collaborative value creation: A study of Indian OSPs
    • Authors: Doren Chadee; Revti Raman Sharma; Banjo Roxas
      Pages: 777 - 797
      Abstract: Abstract How do knowledge-intensive and technology-based service providers from emerging economies sustain their innovation to grow rapidly and become dominant global players in their fields' We explain this recent phenomenon for a sample of offshore service providers (OSPs) from India by drawing from the collaborative value creation theoretical perspective and Mathews’ (Asia Pacific Journal of Management, 23(1):5–27, 2006a) resource “linking and leveraging” concepts. This paper shows that OSPs from India develop high quality relationships to enable them access and exploit network resources in delivering customized and innovative services to clients globally. The findings of this research provide further evidence that Mathews’ (Asia Pacific Journal of Management, 23(1):5–27, 2006a) internationalization framework of emerging economy multinational enterprises can be generalized to service providers.

  • Extending the LLL framework through an institution-based view: Acer as a
           dragon multinational
    • Authors: Shih-Chang Hung; Yung-Ching Tseng
      Pages: 799 - 821
      Abstract: Abstract Mathews (Asia Pacific Journal of Management, 23(1): 5–27, 2006) argues for the importance of latecomer firms undertaking international expansion through the three pillars of resource linkage, leverage, and learning (LLL). We argue that these pillars can be discussed in terms of an institutional framework that explains how institutions shape resource access and economic actions. Despite their lack of capabilities vis-à-vis established multinationals, latecomers are not passive observers or recipients, but can be institutional entrepreneurs who are potentially reflexive enough to leverage their institutional linkages to acquire resources and develop learning activities for innovation, transformation, and internationalization. To illustrate our idea, we study the Taiwan-based dragon multinational, Acer, from 1976 to 2014. Three institutional blocks that underlie Acer’s engagement with institutional linkage, leverage, and learning are emphasized: the cultural system built around the norms of the Chinese family business; the political system defined by the distinct pattern of state-business relations in Taiwan; and a technological system constructed by multiple global players in the computer industry.

  • Learning breakdown in latecomer multinational enterprises
    • Authors: Xiaowen Tian
      Pages: 823 - 850
      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.

  • 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.

  • CEO values, stakeholder culture, and stakeholder-based performance
    • Authors: Lu Jiao; Graeme Harrison; Maria Cadiz Dyball; Jinhua Chen
      Pages: 875 - 899
      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.

  • Family values and inter-institutional governance of strategic decision
           making in Indian family firms
    • Authors: Joseph Lampel; Ajay Bhalla; Kavil Ramachandran
      Pages: 901 - 930
      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.

  • When too little or too much hurts: Evidence for a curvilinear relationship
           between team faultlines and performance
    • Authors: Shuai Chen; Duanxu Wang; Yun Zhou; Ziguang Chen; Daoyou Wu
      Pages: 931 - 950
      Abstract: Abstract Faultlines are inherent to many workgroups, but the literature has not fully explained what faultlines mean for team functioning. In this study, we investigate the curvilinear relationship between faultlines and team performance from a cross-categorization perspective. Analyses of multisource data obtained from 61 workgroups located in China support an inverted U-shaped relationship between faultlines and team performance. Additionally, we find that this curvilinear relationship is moderated by a team’s climate of psychological safety such that the curvilinear relationship is more pronounced among teams with a weaker psychological safety climate. The findings contribute to elaborating the nature of and advancing a contingency view of the relationship between faultlines and team performance. Theoretical implications are discussed along with possible limitations and directions for future research.

  • 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
      Pages: 951 - 974
      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.

  • An institutional response model to economic liberalization: Japanese
           MNEs’ ownership choices in China
    • Authors: Megan Min Zhang; Paul W. Beamish
      Abstract: 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: 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
           methodology
    • Authors: Brian K. Boyd
      Abstract: 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.

  • The strategic and cultural legitimacy of HR professionalization in Hong
           Kong
    • Authors: Paul Higgins; Man-fung Lo
      Abstract: Abstract In Hong Kong, human resources (HR) practice has reached a point of professionalization not yet apparent in other parts of China creating opportunities for best practice diffusion across rapidly developing cities, provinces, and regions. The aim of this paper is to ascertain the strategic and cultural legitimacy of human resource management (HRM) in Hong Kong from the perspective of the occupation’s status as an emerging profession. Combining established theory on professions with documented insights from normative associational ideals, this paper derives four major sources of HR professionalization, which it entitles strategy, communication, administration, and discipline. Assuming that tasks performed by the most senior, qualified and experienced practitioners hold greatest empirical sway over the prospect of occupational association, this study finds that a combination of strategic and communication practices emerge as the two most likely routes to HR professionalization. Based on survey responses from a representative sample of 172 certified practitioners, the findings support the notion of HR as a strategic asset, raising important implications for the professional status of the occupation within an Asian management context.

  • Ownership influences on corporate social responsibility in the Indian
           context
    • Authors: James J. Cordeiro; Ambra Galeazzo; Tara Shankar Shaw; Rajaram Veliyath; M. K. Nandakumar
      Abstract: Abstract The empirical evidence from the extant literature has been equivocal regarding the influence exerted by different ownership types on corporate social responsibility (CSR), especially in developing countries such as India characterized by institutional voids. We use a longitudinal panel dataset of 500 large Indian companies to test a model of corporate ownership forms as key determinants of CSR engagement in India. Based on neo-institutional theory, our model of CSR determinants investigates the roles of three salient aspects of ownership namely multinational ownership/affiliation, state ownership and family ownership and control, after controlling for the influence of firm size, firm age, leverage, the availability of slack resources, profitability and various governance attributes. Our ordered logit regressions indicate strong support for the role of multinational ownership and family control and management in promoting higher levels of CSR engagement. Contrary to expectations, public sector ownership appeared to negatively impact CSR engagement. We offer our conjectures on this anomalous finding and the research possibilities it opens up.

  • Building social capital and human capital for internationalization: The
           role of network ties and knowledge resources
    • Authors: Yuliani Suseno; Ashly H. Pinnington
      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the inter-relationships between network ties as social capital and knowledge resources as human capital, in the internationalization of law firms. Using a qualitative case study methodology, this study is based on primary data collected from Australian law firms and corporate client organizations, and compares and contrasts the views of lawyers and clients on building social and human capital. Our study finds that the relative importance of strong ties diminishes as professional services globalize and weak ties become viewed as more prominent for successful internationalization. The main findings indicate three different sets of inter-relationships between social and human capital: complementary, supplementary and compensatory. We discuss the complementary and supplementary effects of strong and weak ties and three different types of knowledge resources (technical, market and client-specific knowledge). We also argue that knowledge resources of technical and market knowledge can compensate network ties in the internationalization of firms. Examining social and human capital between law firms and clients provides important theoretical and practical insights into understanding the internationalization of professional service firms.

  • From LLL to IOL 3 : Moving dragon multinationals research forward
    • Authors: Jane Lu; Xufei Ma; Lucy Taksa; Yue Wang
      Abstract: Abstract In the past decade, there has been a large number of studies on how firms from the fast developing Asia-Pacific region initiate and manage their international business expansions, leading to an emerging area of research which could be labeled as dragon multinationals research. To illustrate how we can move dragon multinationals research forward, in this editorial we first expand John Mathews’ linkage-leverage-learning (LLL) model to an extended framework of inward linkages-outward linkages-leverage-learning (IOL3) framework that aims to help us better analyze what makes dragon multinationals’ international expansion unique. We then introduce the papers selected for this Special Issue and highlight their contributions in line with our proposed new analytical framework. Finally, we use the framework to explore opportunities and directions for future research on dragon multinationals.

  • How does local partners network embeddedness affect international joint
           venture survival in different subnational contexts'
    • Authors: Jinsil Kim; Kyun Kim
      Abstract: Abstract Do local partners' network attributes affect the survival of high-tech international joint ventures (IJV)' How does the effect of network attributes vary in different subnational institutional environments' While the classic economic explanation for IJV formation and subsequent performance draws from the resource-based view (RBV), we add the relational dimension to explain that IJV survival may be affected by local partners’ relation-specific assets within the local network. We test the effect of the local partners’ network attributes as calculated by UCINET (centrality, network status, and structural hole position) on IJV survival. We additionally assert that this relationship is moderated by subnational institutional heterogeneity. Using our sample of 125 IJV dyadic pairs of US multinational enterprises (MNEs) operating in high-tech industries and their local partners in China, we find partial support for our claims.

  • Why am I ostracized and how would I react' — A review of
           workplace ostracism research
    • Authors: Yina Mao; Yan Liu; Chunyan Jiang; Iris D. Zhang
      Abstract: Abstract Ostracism is an important issue in the workplace and studies on this issue are diverse and large. This paper comprehensively reviews the literature related to workplace ostracism in five aspects. First, in discussing why ostracism occurs, it outlines that individuals are ostracized due to their dispositions, ability and skills, behavioral features, and perpetrators’ ostracism motives. Second, in investigating the consequences of ostracism, it outlines that victims would respond with affective and attitudinal, physical, and behavioral tendencies, and these reactions can be either positive or negative. Third, in describing specific mechanisms for ostracism to take effect, it summarizes that threat-to-needs as well as affective and cognitive responses play important roles. Fourth, regarding the mixed findings of ostracism’s impact, it points out that extant inconsistencies lie in individual differences, temporal effects, and situational cues. Last, in recommending future research areas, it suggests several promising directions, particularly the role of culture in shaping victims’ responses to ostracism. We hope this article will be a good foundation for management researchers in Asia Pacific regions to conduct indigenous studies of workplace ostracism relevant to their own contexts.

  • Explaining the entrepreneurial orientation–performance relationship in
           emerging economies: The intermediate roles of absorptive capacity and
           improvisation
    • 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
           relationship
    • 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.
