  • Moderating role of productivity on diversified conglomerates and
           performance: The case of Malaysia
    • Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The paper investigates the previous mixed findings in the relationship between diversification and firm performance. Using international and industrial conglomerates, the paper introduces productivity as a moderating variable to ascertain whether the mixed views in the diversification performance nexus is due to variations in productivity. The findings in both proxies of performance (q & Roa) show that productivity is not a significant moderator in the diversification-performance link, except that under industrial conglomerates productivity enhances return on assets significantly. Meanwhile, the results show that diversification either has no significant value on firm performance or relates negatively with performance – a contrasting result to the hypothesis of this study. Design/methodology/approach This study adopts diversification measurement, categorisation approach and the methodology used in the work of Fauver et al. (2004) and the subsequent modification by Lee et al. (2012). This study however investigates the moderating effect of productivity on diversified firms and not ownership as shown in the previous studies. Performance is measured by two proxies to show robustness of the study. Return on asset (ROA) as an accounting tool and Tobin’s q which reflects a market based- performance of the firm. Findings The results show that productivity has no moderating impact on a market based performance of a diversified firm. Regarding Roa results show a split in finding by showing that productivity has no significant impact on international diversification however for industrial diversification results show significant impact. Originality/value The paper adds to knowledge of finance by ruling out the view that the inconsistencies in the diversification and performance nexus in emerging economies could be due to vagaries in productivity. It is confirmed that productivity technically does not strengthen the link between diversification and performance: suggesting that other factors other than productivity could establish a maximal impact on that link to minimize the inconsistencies in the findings on diversification-performance link.

  • DISCLOSURE OF PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP (PPP) VOLUNTARY INFORMATION: CASE
           OF MALAYSIAN PPP PROJECTS
    • Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose This study has two objectives. First, it seeks the perception of PPP experts on the importance of desirable PPP information that can be voluntarily reported by the private sector. Second, it determines the extent and quality of voluntary disclosure of PPP information by private entities. Design/methodology/approach In achieving the first objective, the study uses a questionnaire survey. The questionnaire was distributed to PPP experts and 25 usable responses were received. In addressing the second objective, a content analysis procedure was utilized to analyse the 2015 annual reports of 11 construction companies. Descriptive statistics including the mean score, frequency and percentage were employed to analyse the responses of the questionnaire instrument and the annual reports disclosure. Findings The results of the questionnaire survey reveal that the majority of the items were rated as very important to be disclosed by the private sector in Malaysia. However, from the content analysis, it was also revealed that the extent and quality of voluntary information disclosed by the private construction companies were low. Originality/value This study is important as it contributes to the scant literature on PPP disclosure in Malaysia. The study is unique as it not only investigated the extent and quality of voluntary disclosure by private entities but also solicited the perception of PPP experts on what voluntary items should be disclosed.

  • Social Media Usage, Electronic Word of Mouth and Purchase Decision
           Involvement
    • Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose This paper proposes the theory which gives valuable insight into the context of social media, electronic word of mouth, trust and purchase decision involvement. Design/methodology/approach Review of existing literature was done and construct-wise measurement items were adapted from existing scales. Experts reviewed the items and validated. Convergent validity, discriminant validity and reliability of the scales were tested with the data collected from 252 respondents. Structural equation modeling was used to examine the proposed model. Findings Social media usage and electronic word of mouth have positive impact on purchase decision involvement and online trust plays vital mediating role in this context. Originality/value The implications of findings of this research are relevant for managers and public policy makers. People can be sensitized against any menace or can be made aware about any good things in the society in true sense so that they become proactive, participate and take decision (or purchase decision).

  • EXPLORING MEANING TRANSFER IN CELEBRITY ENDORSEMENTS: MEASUREMENT AND
           VALIDATION
    • Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The ‘Meaning Transfer Model’ (MTM) is one of the less researched models in celebrity endorsement. The present study empirically measures and validates a comprehensive model of meaning transfer in celebrity endorsements. Design/methodology/approach Based on a conceptual model of meaning transfer that starts from celebrity identity as an antecedent of perceived celebrity meaning, the study integrates celebrity meaning, brand meaning and consumer behavior and two moderators leading to six study hypotheses. The model is empirically tested using survey data (of 483 consumers) from India with the application of factor analysis and structural equation modeling. Findings Major results indicate a positive effect of celebrity meaning on brand meaning and brand meaning on subsequent consumer behavior. The moderating effect of consumer knowledge and product involvement in successful meaning transfer is also observed. Research limitations/implications Contribution of the present study lies in the validation of a comprehensive model of meaning transfer in celebrity endorsements that may pave the way to the explanation of previous confounding results. Practical implications The present study provided an actionable model for marketers that would lead to successful meaning transfer and the various factors that need to be controlled. Originality/value This is the first study to validate a meaning transfer model that integrates the basic tenets of celebrity endorsement theory.

  • ASSESSING ORGANIZATIONAL CITIZENSHIP BEHAVIOUR THROUGH CONSTRUCTING
           EMOTIONAL INTELLIGIENCE
    • Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this study is to identify the relationships of the dimensions of emotional intelligence (EI) with organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). Emotional intelligence is the capacity to recognize and articulate emotions among the individuals and others in the workplace. Emotional capabilities can be used to enhance a person’s ability in this particular field who can exhibit better OCB. Design/methodology/approach This paper investigates the relationships of emotional intelligence and its components with organizational citizenship behavior among the employees who are working commercial banks of Malaysia. Data were collected from 293 employees from 10 commercial banks operating in Peninsular Malaysia. Findings Structural equation modelling (SEM) approach was applied to this study and identified that employee emotional intelligence plays a major role for enhancing their citizenship behavior in the organization. The three components of EI namely use of emotion, others emotion appraisal and regulation of emotion are having great effect on organizational citizenship behavior. Research limitations/implications Scholars can develop new research agenda to identify the nature of effects it might have on employee’s performance that can boost the ultimate goal of the organization. Practical implications Through the findings of this empirical study, it is confirmed that this research has provided some assessment and developed new knowledge about the effects of employees’ emotional intelligence and how they relate this to their OCB. The empirical evidences from the findings of this study can contribute to advancing the current knowledge in the fields of organizational management and industrial sector by showing the differentiating effects of the dimensions of EI on OCB. Originality/value Findings from this study may create awareness and interests about the significance of conducting more research on EI and OCB by incorporating other variables/constructs of interests. Through the findings of this empirical study, it is confirmed that this research has provided some assessment and developed new knowledge about the effects of employees’ emotional intelligence and how they relate this to their OCB.

  • Role of basic psychological need satisfaction in retaining talent: an
           investigation in the Indian context
    • First page: 2
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 9, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose The current research investigates the association of the satisfaction of the basic psychological needs for competence, autonomy, and relatedness with affective commitment and turnover intentions among retail employees in India while also examining the mediating role of job satisfaction in these associations. Design/methodology/approach Research hypotheses were tested using a cross-organizational sample of 244 employees. Existing, established scales were used to measure the research constructs. Findings The results of this study show that the satisfaction of the needs for competence, autonomy, and relatedness was positively related to affective commitment and negatively related to turnover intentions. Moreover, the results indicate that job satisfaction mediated the association of basic psychological need satisfaction with affective commitment and turnover intentions. Practical implications This study highlights the significant role of basic psychological need satisfaction in retaining employees in a rapidly growing economy that is experiencing very high employee turnover. The findings of this study may be helpful for organizational leaders in taking appropriate actions to create working conditions that facilitate the satisfaction of employees’ basic psychological needs. Satisfaction of employees’ basic psychological needs at work may help in retaining them in the current economic scenario, which is witnessing very high employee turnover. Originality/value This research tested the applicability of basic psychological need satisfaction to Eastern collectivistic cultures, particularly to India. Recent socio-economic changes, unique workforce demographics and a predominantly collectivistic culture make India distinct from Western and European countries, where most of the earlier research on understanding the nature, antecedents, and consequences of basic psychological need satisfaction has been conducted. This research provides an important contribution not only to basic psychological need satisfaction theory, but also to international business literature.

  • The role of manager influence strategies and innovation attributes in
           innovation implementation
    • First page: 16
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 9, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose This study examines the impact of manager influence strategies and innovation attributes on employee attitudes and behaviors in innovation implementation. Design/methodology/approach Employees (n=237) in a manufacturing company in Taiwan which implemented an e-learning system participated in an online survey. System logs were used as behavioral outcome variables. Findings Persuasive strategy and relative advantage had a significant positive association with attitudes while relationship-based strategy and complexity had a significant negative association with attitudes. Assertive strategy and relative advantage had a significant positive association with use of the e-learning system, while persuasive strategy, relationship-based strategy, and complexity had a significant negative association with use of the e-learning system. Both relative advantage and complexity mediated the relationship between persuasive strategy and employee attitudes and behaviors. Complexity mediated the relationship between relationship-based strategy and employee attitudes and behaviors. Practical implications Managers should use persuasive strategy to inform employees regarding the benefits of the innovation and provide any assistance needed. Managers should be advised to not use relationship-based strategy as it can have an adverse employee impact. Originality/value Our mediation model uses the diffusion of innovations model and the influence tactics literature to help explain the benefits of certain managerial practices.

  • Unlocking consumers’ environmental value orientations and green
           lifestyle behaviors: a key for developing green offerings in Thailand
    • First page: 37
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 9, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose As consumers’ needs and wants are often reflected in their thoughts and behaviors, this paper seeks to understand Thai consumers’ environmental value orientations and green lifestyle behaviors. Additionally, this study explores whether a notable relationship was specifically formed between the devastating impacts of the 2011 floods on the consumers’ lives and their environmental value and green lifestyle behavior. Design/methodology/approach A consumer survey was conducted across Bangkok during the first two weeks of May 2012, following a seven month nationwide flooding within Thailand, which lasted between July 2011 and January 2012. Findings Thai consumers demonstrate high environmental value, which is predominantly motivated by egoistic and biospheric-based values. Nevertheless, they exhibit low levels of green lifestyle behaviors. In addition, only a low positive relationship appears to exist between consumers’ environmental value and their green lifestyle behavior. Moreover, the Thai consumers’ green lifestyle behavior is mainly driven by their egoistic and social-altruistic values. Surprisingly, no distinctive positive relationship was detected between the effects of the 2011 Thailand floods on consumers’ lives and their environmental value or green lifestyle behavior. Originality/value Firms are encouraged to capitalize on Thai consumers’ egoistic and biospheric values when seeking to raise their environmental awareness. To encourage green lifestyle behavior responses, however, firms should emphasize egoistic and social-altruistic values. Furthermore, firms are encouraged to incorporate recycling aspects as notable features within their green offerings. Firms are to be discouraged, however, from specifically using natural disaster concern appeals when seeking to explicitly stimulate Thai consumers to think or act greener.

      Purpose In this paper, we rely on insights from the upper echelon, agency, and organizational identification literatures to help explain cross-cultural differences in top management team pay. Design/methodology/approach This is a theoretical paper building upon the executive compensation literature examining U.S. and Japanese pay schemes. Findings We present three propositions relating to the influence of organizational constitution and organizational identification on the level of pay, as well as the allocation of pay in top management team compensation schemes. Originality/value There is relatively little research focusing on why there are cross cultural pay differences. This paper uses U.S. and Japanese studies to highlight mechanisms that can foster principal-agent goal alignment in different contexts.

      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 9, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose This paper develops a model to build visibility for mitigating supplier risk. Our model has shown that visibility can be an important information-based capability for a buying firm to mitigate supplier risk. Such an importance, however, may not hold in all settings but is contingent on the power-dependence structure between a buyer and its supplier. In particular, under high dependence of buyer on supplier, visibility is more needed to mitigate risk. In reverse, the importance of visibility is reduced if buyer is not dependent on its supplier. Two sides of antecedents to visibility are also posited and tested. Design/methodology/approach Seafood processing firms in Vietnam are surveyed to test the model. Reliabilities and validities of measures are tested before the structured analysis. To test the model, partial least square (variance-based structural equation modeling) with 500 boostrapping samples is used. Findings For the samples of seafood processing firms in Vietnam, visibility into their suppliers are found to be the key in mitigating supplier risks when the firms depend highly on their suppliers. In the reverse cases, the importance of visibility is reduced. Visibility is also found to be anteceded by IT integration between buying firms and their suppliers. Originality/value Our model helps develop and empirically test an important approach in proactively mitigating supplier risk. That is to develop buying firm's visibility into a key supplier. Further, the model is developed to test the ways that visibility can be built. Those include both soft and hard sides of facilitating information exchange from supplier to its buyer. Thus our model is contributed to both the literature of supplier risk and power-dependence.
