  • Monetary incentives and innovation in Chinese SMEs
    • Authors: Daniel Shapiro; Yao Tang; Miaojun Wang; Weiying Zhang
      Abstract: Abstract We investigate the impact of monetary incentives on the innovation performance of a unique sample of private Chinese SMEs. Building on an agency-theoretic framework, we find evidence that firm-specific incentives matter, but their impact is contingent on the nature of the incentive, the employees at whom it is directed, and the measure of innovation employed. However, contrary to our hypothesis and the evidence in other countries, we find that pay-for-performance measures for managers positively impact patenting activity. This result is inconsistent with agency theory and reflects the Chinese institutional environment, notably state incentives for innovation.

  • Firm performance in challenging business climates: does managerial work
           engagement make a difference?
    • Authors: Klaus Friesenbichler; Eva Selenko
      Abstract: Abstract Do more highly work-engaged managers contribute to firm performance? Leaning on the resource-based view, we propose managerial work engagement as a resource relevant to firm performance. Data from a representative survey of managers in Bangladesh support this and illuminate the role of the wider context in predicting work engagement. In less-corrupt environments with a more humane leadership culture, work engagement is more prevalent. In addition, individual work engagement is driven by firm-level factors and contributes independently to firm performance. This illustrates the mutual dependency between an individual manager’s work engagement and microeconomic determinants of firm performance.

  • Seeking legitimacy: Chinese OFDI and domestic isomorphic pressures
    • Authors: Bin Guo; Gangxiang Xu; Wen Li
      Abstract: Abstract Drawing on institutional theory, we argue that the likelihood of a Chinese firm adopting an isomorphic strategy in outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) depends on the influence of external isomorphic pressures—specifically, domestic regional and domestic industrial isomorphic pressures—and the firm’s internal legitimacy-seeking motivation. Quantitative analysis of a sample of 107 Chinese listed firms and their OFDI projects in the 2008–2012 period offers supportive evidence for our arguments. Our study offers further insights into Chinese MNEs by providing a better understanding of the impact of China’s regional and industrial diversity on their OFDI.

  • Corporate governance, product-market competition, and stock returns:
           evidence from the Korean market
    • Authors: Doowon Ryu; Doojin Ryu; Joon Ho Hwang
      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the relationship among market competition, corporate governance, and stock returns in Korea, a representative emerging market. We find that the relation between product-market competition and a firm’s stock return is insignificant, but that better corporate governance is associated with a lower adjusted stock return when market competition intensifies in more competitive industries; This relationship is not evident in less competitive industries. Thus, the effects of corporate governance on stock returns depend on market-competition levels. We offer important empirical evidence by showing that the effects of corporate governance and product-market competition on firms’ stock returns can vary by country and market environment.

  • New technology development by Swedish MNEs in emerging markets: the role
           of co-location of R&D and production
    • Authors: Inge Ivarsson; Claes Göran Alvstam
      Abstract: Abstract Firm-level data from Swedish manufacturing MNEs show that their local R&D units in emerging countries now mainly develop new technology in co-location with manufacturing plants. This complements findings that co-located units have previously mainly locally adapted parent companies’ existing technology. This implies that co-located R&D units of Western MNEs in emerging countries now play a more important strategic role than was previously assumed, especially in China, India, and other Asian countries with large and growing markets, specific demand characteristics, strong domestic producers, rapid industrial and technological change, and a capability to develop and produce complex products and systems.

  • International human resource management of Japanese multinational
           corporations: Challenges and future directions
    • Authors: Tomoki Sekiguchi; Fabian Jintae Froese; Chie Iguchi
      Pages: 83 - 109
      Abstract: Abstract Japanese multinational corporations (MNCs) enjoyed global success until the early 1990s, but recent trends have presented many challenges, necessitating adaptations to international human resource management (IHRM) and other management practices. In reviewing recent changes in the IHRM of Japanese MNCs by focusing on ‘internal internationalization’ at headquarters and ‘external internationalization’ in foreign subsidiaries, we develop a framework that elucidates these processes through the characteristics of industries and Japanese MNCs. Moreover, we discuss future research avenues for a deeper understanding of Japanese IHRM and generating new knowledge in the IHRM field.

  • Similarity to successful peers and the implications for subsidiary
    • Authors: Naoki Ando
      Pages: 110 - 136
      Abstract: Abstract This study explores whether the performance of a lower-performing subsidiary improves when it is staffed in a similar manner to high-performing subsidiaries. Using a panel data set comprising 11 266 observations of foreign subsidiaries of Japanese firms, it is found that in subsidiaries with strategic importance, staff deployment similar to that of high-performing peers has a positive impact on the subsidiary’s performance. This study also demonstrates that when institutional distance between the host and home countries is large, staff deployment similar to that of high-performing peers has a negative impact on performance.

  • Human resource management practices at foreign-affiliated companies in
           least-developed regions: US and Japanese Companies in Nepal
    • Authors: Mohan Pyari Maharjan; Tomoki Sekiguchi
      Pages: 137 - 164
      Abstract: Abstract On the basis of 16 qualitative case studies of the US-affiliated, Japanese-affiliated and local Nepali companies, we investigate how the context of Nepal as a least-developed country influences the way MNC affiliates implement human resource (HR) practices. Our findings indicate that institutional distance can promote, rather than impede, the transfer of HR practices, as long as the practices are able to address local needs. The findings also suggest that the nature and needs of the local labor market are stronger predictors of the transfer of HR practices than those factors identified in extant international human resource management frameworks, such as institutional and cultural distance.

  • The global emergence of Chinese multinationals: A resource-based view of
           ownership and performance
    • Authors: Xiaoming He; Subrata Chakrabarty; Lorraine Eden
      Pages: 1 - 31
      Abstract: Abstract We apply insights from the resource-based view to better understand the emergence of Chinese multinational companies (MNCs) and to investigate the determinants of their performance. We argue that state ownership and foreign-corporate ownership have played a role in providing Chinese MNCs with access to key resources to improve their performance. Moreover, given the dominant role of government policies in China, Chinese MNCs are more profitable when their ownership structures align more closely with attributes favored by government policies. Our findings provide strong support to our arguments. This study provides new insights into how ownership structure leads to heterogeneity in MNC performance.

  • Innovation capability, marketing capability and firm performance: A
           two-nation study of China and Korea
    • Authors: Xi’na Yuan; Sohyoun Shin; Xinming He; Sang Yong Kim
      Pages: 32 - 56
      Abstract: Abstract This research empirically tests the effects of two critical organisational capabilities – innovation capability (IC) and marketing capability (MC) – on firm performance in two Asian nations: China and Korea. Drawing on institutional theory and the strategic-fit paradigm, we suggest that capability requirements may vary across different institutional environments for superior performance. Using data of 385 firms in China and 280 firms in Korea, this research finds that generally both capabilities positively influence firm performance; IC is more important in Chinese market, while MC is more vital for firms competing in Korea.

  • The ‘feminine’ entrepreneurial personality trait: The competitive
           advantage of female college-student entrepreneurs in Chinese wei - shang
    • Authors: Jhony Choon Yeong Ng; Metis Meng Die Huang; Yiping Liu
      Abstract: Abstract We conducted this grounded theory research to study the motivation of wei-shangs (i.e., wechat businesspersons) in starting their own business ventures, and their business model and entrepreneurial behaviors. We found that many college-student wei-shangs are risk-adverse individuals who think of entrepreneurship merely as a leisure-time pursuit. We also found that ‘feminine’ characteristics seem to hold a key to successful entrepreneurship. Furthermore, we found that wei-shangs use the wechat platform to extend their social network and to gain the trust of potential customers to get them to buy their products.

  • Evolution of Samsung group and its central office: Imperfect market and
    • Authors: Philip PilSoo Choi
      Abstract: Abstract The history of Samsung and its central office shows the influence of exogenous social and economic change on business-group structures and the endogenous development of capacity in a business group. This paper investigates how transaction cost operates in regard to group size and the functions retained or otherwise, centralized or decentralized, by central office. In relation to business-group development, the effectiveness of transaction cost and active capacity-building are examined and weighed. Entrepreneurs reacting to external changes have raised group capabilities and sought to maintain group integrity. The central-office activities of allocation, ratification, nurturing, and sharing are also discussed and conceptualized.

  • Asian emerging multinationals and the dynamics of institutions and
    • Authors: Pavida Pananond; Axèle Giroud
      Abstract: Abstract Multinationals from developing Asia originate from highly diverse countries. Their rise challenges various existing theoretical concepts on the internationalisation of MNEs, their institutional background and context-specific features. We suggest here that the role of institutions and firm networks must be better conceptualised to reflect the internationalisation of MNEs from developing Asia. In particular, we propose that a key driver for internationalisation is explained not just by social networks but also by dynamic evolution in network relationships within industry value chains. We also argue, given the context of increased regional integration, that institutional boundaries should be expanded from country to region.

  • Firm-specific, national and regional competitive advantages: The case of
           emerging market MNEs—Thailand
    • Authors: Elena Beleska-Spasova; Sirinuch Loykulnanta; Quyen T. K. Nguyen
      Abstract: Abstract Increasing levels of regional economic integration have created a new source of international competitiveness for MNEs from an emerging economy, Thailand, in the context of ASEAN economic integration. Building on the theoretical framework of firm-specific advantages (FSAs) and country-specific advantages (CSAs) grounded in internalization theory, we introduce region-specific advantages (RSAs) and advance a novel regional dual-double-diamond model to analyse regional competitiveness. Using both primary and secondary data we find that most Thai firms derive their international competitiveness from CSAs rather than FSAs, and will benefit from ASEAN RSAs. Our study significantly advances the literature on international competitiveness of emerging-economy MNEs.

  • Aggressive acquirers, laidback owners? Organisational dynamics of
           subsidiary integration in Chinese MNCs
    • Authors: Yu Zheng
      Abstract: Abstract Why do Chinese MNCs appear to be ‘aggressive’ in cross-border acquisition (Zeng and Williamson, 2003), yet ‘laidback’ (Liu and Woywode, 2013) in consolidating subsidiaries in developed economies? This paper addresses this question by examining the power dynamics underpinning subsidiary integration and by bridging two relatively disconnected streams of literature in international business: subsidiary integration of emerging-market MNCs in advanced economies, and power relations inside MNCs. An exploratory case study is outlined to examine a Chinese MNC’s attempt to consolidate a newly acquired Canadian subsidiary. The findings suggest that developing process-based power is critical to subsidiary integration for Chinese MNCs.

  • Supervisor–subordinate Guanxi violations: Trickle-down effects
           beyond the Dyad
    • Authors: Yanhan Zhu; Diwan Li
      Abstract: Abstract This paper explores the trickle-down effects of two kinds of supervisor–subordinate guanxi violations (instrumental and socio-emotional) beyond the dyad in Mainland China. The results showed that relative to a situation of no violation, both instrumental and socio-emotional supervisor–subordinate guanxi violations were associated with poorer job performance, more organizational retaliatory behavior, and stronger work–family conflict. Furthermore, organizational commitment mediated differently the relationships between the two kinds of supervisor–subordinate guanxi violations and relevant outcomes. We show that supervisor–subordinate guanxi violations can exert influences on subordinates in the work context and beyond, based on the trickle-down model.

  • Director network resources and firm performance: Evidence from Indian
           corporate governance reforms
    • Authors: Tara Shankar Shaw; James J. Cordeiro; Palanisamy Saravanan
      Abstract: Abstract Drawing on resource-dependence theory, we hypothesized that in an emerging economy characterized by weak underdeveloped institutions, director interlocks would be a conduit of resources external to the firm. Using data from 651 large Indian firms for the years 2006–2012, we found that directors’, especially independent directors’, social capital and industry-level expertise enhanced firm performance. Our findings contribute by providing evidence of the beneficial role of directors in providing resources through their interlocks, contrary to the basic tenet of corporate governance that independent directors are chosen for their monitoring role to reduce agency costs.

  • Causes and moderators of corporate social responsibility in China: The
           influence of personal values and institutional logics
    • Authors: Juelin Yin; Anusorn Singhapakdi; Yunzhou Du
      Abstract: Abstract We investigate the influence of managerial perceived importance of ethics and social responsibility (PRESOR) on the implementation of corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices, using a survey study of business leaders in China. Specifically, we examine the different dimensions of PRESOR (stakeholder view, compatibility view, and stockholder view) in relation to CSR, and how explicit and implicit institutional-field logics moderate these relationships. We show that the personal values of managers, in combination with the situational dynamics affecting an organization, have a significant and complementary impact on CSR implementation in China.

  • From servant to master: Power repositioning of emerging-market companies
           in global value chains
    • Authors: Pavida Pananond
      Abstract: Abstract In this article, I analyze how emerging-market firms upgrade their capabilities. Complementing the upgrading-through-technological capabilities view, I propose a power-repositioning argument, whereby local firms improve their power position through taking more control of the chain as part of the upgrading process. In particular, I argue that international expansion toward downstream activities enhances the power position of emerging-market supplier firms in globally integrated buyer-driven industries. This process enables local firms to break away from low-value-added positions within the value chain and exert more power within the governance structure of global value chains.

  • The role of a model’s race in influencing Chinese consumers’
           product perception
    • Authors: Xiaobing Xu; Rong Chen
      Abstract: Abstract Previous studies indicate that consumers generally favor ads featuring racially similar models. However, distinctiveness theory suggests that people in a homogeneous society may not treat race as a similarity trait. On the basis of stereotype activation and country-of-origin theory, we find the use of Western models in ads may enhance Chinese consumers’ product-attribute beliefs and attitudes. Our work also extends knowledge of gender differences in information processing by showing that the model-race effect is stronger in males; this is attenuated when the product is utilitarian rather than hedonic, providing an explanation of why some product categories in China are more likely to feature foreign models in ads.
