  • Proactive government intervention, board gender balance, and stakeholder
           engagement in China and Europe
    • Abstract: This study assesses the management quality and corporate social performance of firms supervised according to three distinctly different governance regimes. The differences relate to protocols and interventions on board gender balance. Sweden and Norway serve as our strongly gender-inclusive (SGI) benchmarks, with the UK and China as our respective moderately (MGI) and weakly gender-inclusive (WGI) domains. Our evidence shows that corporate social performance ratings have risen appreciably between 2010 and 2015 in each of China, the UK, Sweden and Norway. Moreover, corporate social responsibility (CSR) ratings in Sweden, Norway and the UK appear broadly comparable. In extending Ahern and Dittmar’s (Quarterly Journal of Economics, 127, 137–197, 2012) evidence of a quota’s initial deleterious effect on managerial quality, we observe improvement in Norwegian firms’ directors’ educational profiles as quotas become more entrenched. Average director age (experience) also rose in such firms over the study period. Our results suggest some degree of adaptation in the application of board quotas. Additionally, variation in female board participation exerts minimal (strong) influence on CSR ratings for SGI- (MGI- & WGI-) domain entities. Findings on this issue for China and the UK strongly support a critical mass theory (CMT; Konrad, Kramer, & Erkut, Organizational Dynamics, 37(2), 145–164, 2008) conception of corporate social-engagement. Finally, results reveal a non-uniform relation between corporate social and financial returns. Overall, we add new context to institutional theory narratives on stakeholder-engagement (Campbell, Academy of Management Review, 32(3), 946–967, 2007; Young & Makhija, Journal of International Business Studies, 45, 670–698, 2014).

  • Two not of a kind: Social network theory and informal social networks in
           East Asia
    • Abstract: In this study, we analyze the core assumptions and ideals of social network characteristics in East Asia and the West. By using an analytical frame derived from the literature and consisting of key antecedents of social networks, we find differences between the conventional assumptions of social network characteristics when comparing them with those found in East Asia. Moreover, we find remarkable intra-regional differences. Among these, and contrary to common beliefs about social networks, we find weak ties are neither hardly effective nor preferably used in East Asia, where strong ties are both more preferred and more powerful. Further, social ties tend to be rather consummatory and networks rather closed. Also, depending on the nature of the network, bridging either does not work or is not intended. We recommend further studies explicitly taking local context into account in order to refine or reframe extant knowledge on social networks.

  • Interactive impact of ethnic distance and cultural familiarity on the
           perceived effects of free trade agreements
    • Abstract: Past research on free trade agreements (FTAs) mostly uses an economic perspective to assess their impact on the level of trade and investments between nations. As a result, there is a distinct paucity of research on the perceptions of employees and managers in organizations affected by FTAs, towards the likely outcomes of those FTAs. We address this gap by using the context of recently signed China-Australia free trade agreement (ChAFTA) to develop a multidimensional scale for the perceived advantages and disadvantages of FTAs. Drawing on social identity theory and the similarly-attraction paradigm we also show direct and interactive effects of perceived ethnic distance (between home and partner country) and cultural familiarity (with the FTA partner country) on these perceived outcomes of FTAs. Our findings highlight the need to look beyond the economic perspective and consider a much broader range of perceived outcomes of FTAs.

  • Service employees’ concurrent adaptive and unethical behaviors in
           complex or non-routine tasks: The effects of customer control and
           self-monitoring personality
    • Abstract: We investigate how uncertainty-ridden task environments simultaneously trigger both positive and negative coping behaviors among front-line service employees. We suggest that complex and non-routine tasks give rise to employees’ exercise of both creative discretion such as adaptive selling and deviant discretion such as unethical selling behavior. Moreover, customer control moderates these relations by constraining employees’ adaptive selling and encouraging unethical selling. We propose three-way interactions, where an employee’s self-monitoring trait further influences customer control’s moderating effects. We collected 798 service episodes from 55 financial service employees in Hong Kong and Taiwan. We find that task complexity and task non-routineness relate to adaptive selling and unethical selling; low self-monitors engage in most adaptive selling in complex tasks with low controlling customers; and high monitors engage in most unethical selling in non-routine tasks with high controlling customers. Our person-environment-process model informs front-line discretion theory as well as management and practice of front-line discretion.

  • Economic crisis, intra-MNC production shifts and MNC performance from a
           network perspective
    • Abstract: Our study examines how a multinational corporation (MNC) shifts production across its international subsidiary network in response to an economic crisis and how attributes of intra-MNC production shifts (IPSs) affect MNC performance. We argue that when an MNC faces an economic crisis, the magnified cross-national differences in economic conditions give it clear direction for production shifts, thereby reducing the incidence of its IPSs. However, this negative relationship weakens if an MNC has a wider subsidiary network that enables it to exploit more cross-national differences in economic conditions. We also argue that IPSs in which more host countries are involved will have larger positive effects on MNC performance. This is because the number of host countries involved in the production shifts reflects the cross-national differences actually exploited in economic conditions by the MNC. The analysis of panel data for Korean manufacturing MNCs that experienced the 1998 and 2008 economic crises provides empirical support for our arguments.

           SMEs: Evidence from Hong Kong
    • 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.

  • How powerful political ties appropriate resources and how weaker
           organizations protect themselves: A case study from Indonesia
    • Abstract: We advance the resource dependence literature on appropriation of organizational resources by powerful partners, focusing on political ties. Using a unique emerging market case of a venture with political ties, we advance theory by unpacking how political connections can hurt the organization by increasing the permeability of organizational boundaries. Our extensions highlight the crucial role of control mechanisms for politically connected organizations.

  • An institutional response model to economic liberalization: Japanese
           MNEs’ ownership choices in China
    • 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.

  • What determines the severity of tunneling in China'
    • Abstract: This study contextualizes the agency theory perspective in the Chinese setting to better understand the determinants of tunneling by controlling shareholders, a well-known form of principal-principal (PP) conflicts in corporate governance. Specifically, we examine how owner identity, managerial agency, and subnational institutional environments individually and collectively shape the severity of tunneling in Chinese publicly listed firms from 2005 to 2010. The empirical analysis shows that local governments and private enterprises tunneled more wealth from their respective listed subsidiaries than did central government agencies. Further, the severity of tunneling was greater in companies with higher managerial agency costs, especially those controlled by local governments. Finally, the intensity of tunneling was found to be negatively associated with the institutional quality of the subnational regions in which the listed firms resided, particularly those controlled by private entities. Our study serves to enrich the burgeoning literature on PP conflicts in corporate governance research.

  • Risk adaptation and emotion differentiation: An experimental study of
           dynamic decision-making
    • Abstract: We report a study of risky decision-making in a dynamic risk environment, looking in particular at idea that variations in risk preferences over time are subject to both risk adaptation and ability to differentiate negative emotions. In a between-group experiment, 175 participants completed 20 binary project investment decisions under three objective probabilities of success conditions (20%, 50%, and 80%). The results showed that participants’ risk-taking increased at Time 2 only when risky projects have a medium-to-high chance of success (50% or 80%) at Time 1. We also found that participants who could differentiate their negative emotions under the condition with high favorability of risk-taking (80%), achieved higher returns, suggesting that negative emotion differentiation provides emotional information to capture the pattern of decision trials in the environment more favorable to risk-taking success. We conclude with a discussion of the theoretical and practical contributions of our findings for individuals and firms.

  • Unrelated acquisitions in China: The role of political ownership and
           political connections
    • Abstract: In this paper, we examine government influence on the acquisition behavior of Chinese firms. Drawing from the state capitalism literature, we test hypotheses regarding the effect of provincial government ownership and managerial ties respectively on industry relatedness of firm acquisitions. We furthermore test hypotheses concerning the moderating effect of institutional development and governor age and tenure. We test our hypotheses based on analysis of 346 majority acquisition deals completed by first-time acquirers in China between 2002 and 2014. Our results show that provincial government-owned firms and firms with ties to the same are more likely to conduct unrelated acquisitions within their home province compared to acquisitions across provincial boundaries. Similar patterns do not exist for privately owned firms or for firms with no managerial ties to provincial governments. Institutional development and governor age and tenure are found to have no moderating effects. We relate our findings to the main theoretical views of state capitalism and suggest that our results reflect government attempts to promote economic growth and social development. Our study contributes to the understanding of Chinese state capitalism and the cross-province barriers for business in China.

  • A typology of three-way interaction models: Applications and suggestions
           for Asian management research
    • Abstract: We develop a typology of three-way interaction models in order to stimulate more Asia management studies using this approach. In this paper, we explain how to approach moderation based on three-way interactions, introduce three types of three-way interaction models, and provide the appropriate post-hoc statistical procedures accordingly. We also outline several future research examples to demonstrate how three-way interactions can be used in Asian management research.

  • Economic growth, innovation, institutions, and the Great Enrichment
    • Abstract: A number of factors are held up as causes of the economic takeoff of the early 1800s in northwest Europe and North America and later Asia, though certain popularly believed factors such as geography and capital accumulation do not have much empirical support. Nor do other commonly held factors such as trade, plunder, and colonization. It is better understood today that productivity enhancing innovation, new venture and new market creation enabling consumption by a wider range of consumers yield firm and economic growth, as well as improved standards of living. In this overview, these literatures are summarized and examined. In addition the evidence regarding the effect of institutions on economic growth is discussed as well as the role of international business in the transfer of positive institutions and organizational routines.

  • The internationalization of innovation towards the South: A historical
           case study of a global pharmaceutical corporation in China (1993–2017)
    • Abstract: Intensified competition means that multinational enterprises (MNEs) are increasingly concerned with locating innovation activities in the most appropriate locations. This had led to emerging economies in the South becoming an important destination of R&D-related foreign direct investment (FDI), departing from their traditional role as low-cost production sites. Thus far, however, our understanding of this transformation process is limited. The purpose of this article is therefore to explore the process by which foreign MNEs’ low-value-adding operations in the South are transformed into high-value-adding R&D operations. Drawing on the current literature, we construct a framework of evolution consisting of four major waves of R&D internationalization and corresponding R&D objectives. To better understand how these waves have evolved over time, we focus on the South and trace the process of change using a single historical case study: AstraZeneca in China between 1993 and 2017. We find evidence of idiosyncratic location-bound conditions offering both opportunities and resources. The gradual development of these favourable conditions, along with AstraZeneca’s deepening local knowledge, triggered a transformation process in their operations in China. Our study thus offers important historical insights, which present a platform for future research providing more nuanced theoretical explanations of the four waves of R&D internationalization.

  • Location matters: Impact of geographical proximity to financial centers on
           corporate social responsibility (CSR) disclosure in emerging economies
    • Abstract: This study investigates the impact of location on corporate social responsibility (CSR) disclosure in the context of emerging economies. We test our hypotheses using a sample of firms from nine emerging markets, including Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Russia and Turkey, over the period 2010–2015. We find strong and robust evidence indicating that firms located closer to financial centers exhibit more CSR disclosure as compared to their remote counterparts. Moreover, this effect is more pronounced for family owned and cross-listed firms. Lastly, the negative effect of distance on CSR disclosure is stronger in countries with higher income inequality. These results are robust to alternative estimation methods, reduced sample, and alternative proxy for our variable, location.

  • An investigation of the relationship between gender composition and
           organizational performance in Taiwan—The role of task complexity
    • Authors: I-Chieh Hsu; John J. Lawler
      Abstract: An important research issue concerns the effects of gender diversity on organizational performance. Over the years, gender diversity has largely been discussed at the group level or the level of the business unit at most. It has not been widely studied at the level of the organization as a whole. Moreover, such studies have resulted in mixed findings. Diversity does not necessarily improve work performance, often times its relationship with performance can be negative. Drawing on the dynamic capabilities perspective and the contingency perspective, this study investigates the effects of gender diversity on organizational performance in the context of differing job levels in manufacturing companies in Taiwan. We found that female representation in the job level of managers, professionals and administrative personnel showed an inverted U-shaped relationship with organizational performance, and the optimal proportion of women is generally higher than 50%. However, the effect of gender diversity on organizational performance tends to be negative among production workers. Our findings indicate that in the job level of high task complexity, gender diversity contributes to organizational performance. While in the job level of low task complexity, gender diversity does not lead to improved performance. Our findings offer implications for theory and practice.

  • Is “ Yin-Yang balancing” superior to ambidexterity as an approach to
           paradox management'
    • Authors: Xin Li
      Abstract: In promoting indigenous management research in China, Peter P. Li has repeatedly asserted that Yin-Yang is superior to all other cognitive frames in dealing with paradox in general and that his “Yin-Yang balancing” solution is superior to ambidexterity as an approach to paradox management in particular. Disagreeing with Peter P. Li, this paper debunks the “Yin-Yang balancing being superior to ambidexterity” assertion by making three critical points. First, at the philosophical level, Peter P. Li’s notion of “Yin-Yang balancing” is an inaccurate interpretation (or incomplete version) of the Confucian principle of Zhong-Yong that is largely compatible with Aristotle’s doctrine of the mean. Second, at the practical level, his “Yin-Yang balancing” solution, while being different from the structural ambidexterity approach, is compatible with the contextual ambidexterity approach. These first two points imply that Peter P. Li’s “Yin-Yang balancing” solution is not necessarily superior to the ambidexterity approach in particular and the Western thinking in general. Third, Robert Blake and Jane Mouton, in their 1964 book The Managerial Grid, provide a variety of approaches to managing a fundamental organizational paradox (i.e., the production-people conflict). Their analysis not only covers different ambidexterity approaches, but also offers much more insights on paradox management. More significant is that Blake and Mouton made explicit that those ambidexterity-type approaches only deal with the problem at the level of symptoms rather than root causes. This third point implies that some Western scholars have had much deeper thinking on paradox management than some Chinese colleagues may have imagined.
