  • Cross-border acquisition activity by Chinese multinationals and
           domestic-productivity upgrading

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We investigate the impact of cross-border acquisition activity on the domestic productivity of Chinese multinationals. Chinese MNEs have engaged in cross-border acquisitions in an attempt to explore for new capabilities, technologies and management practices so as to enhance productivity and compete in increasingly competitive domestic markets. Empirical scholarship, however, has yet to establish that cross-border acquisition activity by emerging-market multinationals generally contributes to domestic-productivity upgrading, as learning from foreign-acquisition targets, transferring and assimilating this learning, and ultimately upgrading the productivity of home operations represents a challenging and complicated process. We accordingly apply and advance the literature on reverse-knowledge transfers and capability upgrading by first considering the relevance of cross-border acquisition activities on domestic productivity in an emerging-market context, and by second extending the literature’s understanding of the target-firm characteristics which abet domestic-productivity upgrading. Employing firm-level panel data based on 329 Chinese multinationals over the 2000–2010 period, we find outward cross-border acquisition activities generate increased domestic productivity. In addition, we find domestic-productivity upgrading to be larger when acquiring high-tech (versus low-tech) targets and that this effect is further enhanced when acquiring related (versus unrelated) targets.

  • Does board committee independence affect financial distress
           likelihood' A comparison of China with the UK

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study explores the relationship between board committees’ independence and the financial distress of firms in China and the UK. Akin to previous literature, we estimate this relationship between 2007 and 2016 using a conditional logit model on a sample of matched pair firms. For China, the results indicate a positive and statistically significant association between the percentage of independent audit committee members and the financial distress of firms. In contrast, the opposite relationship was found for independent compensation and nomination committee members. For the UK, the relationships are the same, but the results are significant only for nomination committee independence. Our overall results suggest that independent audit committee members are not favorable for firm survival. In contrast, the independent compensation and nomination committee members are beneficial for the financial health of firms, as they are responsible for designing fair compensation packages and for selecting the most suitable persons to decide the strategic moves of the firm, respectively. A robustness test demonstrates that the results are robust to the assumed functional form imposed by the conditional logit model and confirms our core findings for both Chinese and UK firms.

  • Buffering and bridging: How firms manage the burden of celebrity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract On the basis of the sociopolitical legitimacy perspective, we examine how firms respond to the celebrity pressure as well as the underlying mechanisms. We argue that the pressure associated with having a celebrity owner/leader will push firms to undertake activities that “bridge” with stakeholders by engaging in corporate giving while at the same time buffer against them by revealing less information through earnings management. The extent to which a firm engages in such maneuvers varies with the level of social and political pressure from stakeholders. Our hypotheses were supported by an analysis of 297 publicly listed Chinese firms whose owners had recently been included in a list of China’s richest people. The findings enhance our understanding of the sources of celebrity pressure and extend the research on celebrity and legitimacy management.

  • Carry the past into the future: the effects of CEO temporal focus on
           succession planning in family firms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this study, the relationship between CEO temporal focus and family business succession planning is examined and the moderating effects of family interactions and environmental uncertainty are assessed. Based on data from 198 CEOs of family businesses and additional data from 15 semi-structured interviews in China, we find that CEO temporal focus (i.e., past, present, or future focus) is positively associated with succession planning. In addition, family interactions strengthen the relationship between CEO past focus and succession planning and weaken the relationship between CEO future focus and succession planning. Moreover, in uncertain environments, past-focused CEOs are more likely to plan for succession than present-focused CEOs. The theoretical contributions and practical implications of the study are also discussed.

  • The moral licensing effect between work effort and unethical
           pro-organizational behavior: The moderating influence of Confucian value

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract While a large body of literature has focused on the positive effect of work effort on improving individual performance and organizational effectiveness, little is known about how work effort produces the negative outcome, such as unethical pro-organizational behavior. Our study proposes that work effort will activate the moral licensing mechanism through moral credential to increase unethical pro-organizational behavior, and leader Confucian value negatively moderates this relationship. Through the single-factor two-level experimental research (study 1) and the multi-time point investigation data analysis (study 2), the mediation model and the moderated mediation model proposed in both two studies have been supported by observation data. These findings are significant to further understanding of the psychological mechanism and boundary condition of unethical pro-organizational behavior, and provide practical guidance for managers to effectively control employee’s unethical pro-organizational behavior.

  • Empowering leadership: employee-related antecedents and consequences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We develop a theoretical model of empowering leadership that integrates role-based views of followership and social information processing theory and adds a reciprocal component to research on empowering leadership. Our theoretical model proposes that employee task performance and the quality of the supervisor-employee relationship serve as cues that shape supervisor empowerment behaviors, which, in turn, serve as cues that influence employee voice through employee state promotion focus. Data from 223 supervisor-employee dyads supported our hypotheses and showed that supervisors engage in more empowerment behaviors with employees who perform well and with whom they have a good relationship. Supervisors’ empowerment behaviors elicit a state promotion focus in employees, which stimulates these employees to express their concerns, ideas, and opinions in order to improve the functioning of the employee, the team, or the organization.

  • How state and market logics influence firm strategy from within and
           outside' Evidence from Chinese financial intermediary firms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We study how state and market logics, which operate both internal and external to the firm, jointly influence firm strategy. In the context of the Chinese financial intermediary industry, we argue that the level of state ownership in a firm has an inverted U-shaped relationship with the firm’s financial portfolio diversification. This is because firms prioritize financial investment options that serve the dominant logic. As a result, their financial portfolios are more diversified when the multiple logics are balanced than when either logic dominates. This relationship is attenuated by the prevalence of market logic in the regional institutional environment and amplified by industry regulation aimed at correcting market failure. We test these arguments using panel data of Chinese trust companies during a period of de-regulation and re-regulation and find empirical support for the moderated curvilinear effect of state ownership. Our findings demonstrate the relevance of the institutional logics to analyzing firms in contemporary China and highlight how institutional logics at multiple levels jointly shape corporate strategy.

  • Do internationalizing business group affiliates perform better after
           promarket reforms' Evidence from Korean SMEs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines how business group affiliation moderates the performance (P) consequences of internationalization (I) by firms from advanced emerging economies that have implemented major promarket reforms. Our theoretical framework integrates institutional and network perspectives with internationalization research to investigate the effects of institutional change on the role of business groups in supporting the internationalization of their affiliates. Using a dataset of 143 publicly listed Korean manufacturing SMEs over a five-year period, our findings provide statistical evidence that business group affiliation has different moderating effects on the I-P relationship according to the degree of internationalization. Specifically, group-affiliated SMEs exhibit a U-shaped I-P relationship while non-affiliated, independent SMEs present an overall downward S-shaped relationship, where group-affiliated SMEs perform better at any level of internationalization. Besides, we also examine the moderating effect of industry characteristics and found that in the case of SMEs in technology-intensive industries, affiliation to a business group enhances firm performance at low and intermediate levels of internationalization. Overall, we conclude that business groups are able to provide benefits to their internationalizing affiliates in an improved institutional context.

  • Parent-subsidiary linkage: How resource commitment and resource similarity
           influence firm performance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Drawing on the resource-based view, this study examines how parent-subsidiary resource linkages in terms of resource commitment and resource similarity affect the performance of the parent firm. By using the data from 199 Taiwanese firms investing in China, the results of this study show that resource commitment has an inverted U-shaped relationship with the parent firm performance, whereas the relationship between resource similarity and the parent firm performance is U-shaped. In addition, this study also finds that organizational slack and parent involvement moderate these relationships. This study provides important theoretical and managerial implications for international business management.

  • A neo-configurational institutional analysis of international venture
           capital attractiveness and performance: insights for Asia-Pacific

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Prior research suggests that market-supporting institutions are attractive to international venture capital (IVC), yet paradoxically VC firms increasingly invest in countries characterized by institutional weaknesses. In this study, we explore the institutional contexts that make countries attractive to IVC investment and favorable to IVC performance, thus illuminating the implied risk-reward tradeoffs in IVC firm location choice and ability to navigate institutional weaknesses. Utilizing fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (fsQCA), we find four distinct configurations of institutions associated with IVC attractiveness. Each configuration allows for some institutional weaknesses, enabling us to elaborate theory on institutional complementarities and substitutions that drive IVC investment. Further, we find that IVC firms have performed well even in countries with pervasive institutional weaknesses, suggesting that IVC firms may uniquely contribute to the success of new ventures in such institutional contexts. We discuss implications for theory and offer policy and managerial recommendations particularly relevant to IVC activity in the Asia-Pacific region.

  • Do the rich give more' The effects of family wealth and
           entrepreneurial effort on firm philanthropy and growth.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Past research has offered conflicting evidence concerning the effect of family wealth on philanthropy. Equality of Opportunity (EOP) theory has received wide scholarly attention to explain an individual’s philanthropic engagement through the simultaneous consideration of both family wealth and personal effort. Drawing on the insights of EOP, we extend EOP toward entrepreneurial theory and practice by examining how entrepreneurs’ family endowment and entrepreneurial effort impact their charity donation and business growth. Utilizing a large, national dataset with 2503 Chinese entrepreneurs, our findings suggest that entrepreneurs with higher level of entrepreneurial effort are more likely to donate to charity and achieve greater firm growth in the process. In addition, higher level of entrepreneurial effort attenuates the contribution of philanthropy to firm growth. Conversely, no significant effect with respect to family wealth was found.

  • Role-based paternalistic exchange: Explaining the joint effect of leader
           authoritarianism and benevolence on culture-specific follower outcomes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We propose a new construct—role-based paternalistic exchange, or followers’ awareness of and engagement in a family-like exchange relationship with leaders that builds upon both leaders’ parent-like role and followers’ child-like obligation. We use this construct to explain the joint effect of leader authoritarianism and benevolence, the essential components of paternalistic leadership, on two culture-specific follower outcomes in Chinese settings: emic organizational citizenship behavior and deference to supervisor. Using three independent samples, we develop a unidimensional measure. We then employ another sample to test how leader authoritarianism and benevolence relate to role-based paternalistic exchange and, thereby, the two follower outcomes indirectly. Our results indicate that, in contrast to authoritarianism- or benevolence-dominant paternalistic leadership, classical paternalistic leadership (the balanced display of leader authoritarianism and benevolence) has the greatest potential to facilitate role-based paternalistic exchange, which, in turn, positively relates to the two follower outcomes. These results suggest that role-based paternalistic exchange advances our understanding of how paternalistic leadership enhances emic outcomes in Chinese settings.

  • Firm-specific advantages: a comprehensive review with a focus on emerging
           markets

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We consolidate and comprehensively review the international business (IB) literature on the firm-specific advantages (FSAs) of emerging market multinational enterprises (EM MNEs). We do so through a systematic examination of 88 empirical and conceptual articles published in top-ranked IB journals between 2011 and 2018. The results reveal that in the past decades, EM MNEs have acquired several of the same FSAs as their counterparts in developed countries (developed country enterprises or DC MNEs) - financial resources, technologies, marketing capabilities, brand equity, R&D intensity, and management competencies. However, more recently, EM MNEs have developed additional unique FSAs in the form of managerial capabilities - to cope with competition in uncertain and constantly changing environments; easy access to cheaper capital; a stronger commitment to networks, such as those with diaspora communities; and, political connections. These additional FSAs have catalyzed the internationalization of EM MNEs. Our study also shows that some hurdles remain in the IB literature on FSAs. For instance, while IB scholars agree that EM MNEs have different investment motives depending on whether they invest in other emerging economies or developed economies, scholars are silent on the exact FSAs necessary to make EM MNEs investments in the respective economies successful. To advance the IB literature, we present some promising future research areas and challenge scholars to pursue further empirical studies on the FSAs of EM MNEs.

  • The moderate-reputation trap: Evidence from a Chinese cross-border
           business-to-business e-commerce portal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract How does review-based online reputation (for brevity, online reputation) influence online firm survival' Drawing insights from the resource-based view and signaling theory, we examine a nonlinear (U-shaped) relationship between online reputation and firm survival on a cross-border business-to-business (B2B) platform and the resulting moderate-reputation trap. We further examine how online firms employ product strategies to moderate the effect of online reputation on firm survival and thus mitigate the moderate-reputation trap. Using data from 17,920 monthly observations (3145 sellers) from July 2016 to December 2017 on DHgate.com in China, we find strong evidence supporting our hypothesized relationships. More specifically, we demonstrate the existence of the moderate-reputation trap and that this trap can be mitigated by a high product price or low product diversity. Our research provides important insights for managers of online firms, B2B platform providers, and governments.

We pivot from this predominant logic, arguing that under certain circumstances, abused subordinates are socialized to experience shame at the moment and aftermath of abusive supervision and then attempt to manage their shame and protect their self-image by improving their work performance as a self-image reparative action. Drawing on appraisal theories of emotions and the social functional view of emotions, we propose that such a self-image reparative process is more likely to ensue when subordinates otherwise hold a sensitivity to threats to their social self-worth (i.e., face threat sensitivity). The study sample comprised 312 military officers in Taiwan. A three-wave, time-lagged field study was conducted to provide support for our theorizing. As such, our study extends previous speculations on the consequences of supervisory abuse, which have typically found that it lowers subordinate performance. Overall, our work provides answers to both how and under what conditions abusive supervision improves subordinate performance and explains why abusive supervision can continuously prevail within organizations. Theoretical and practical contributions are discussed.

  • Sympathy or distress' The moderating role of negative emotion
           differentiation in helping behavior

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Past research has documented the many psychological and behavioral benefits of negative emotion differentiation, that is, the degree to which one can identify, distinguish, and describe specific negative feeling states. Drawing on Affective Events Theory, we argue that negative emotion differentiation affects how individuals react to a need-laden affective event (i.e., being in a situation where one is asked for some assistance). Specifically, we posit that individuals high in negative emotion differentiation will be more adept at interpreting their negative emotions as arising from others' needs (i.e., moral emotions) and regulating them through helping behavior. We tested this basic premise in two studies conducted in East Asia – a field study involving working adults in a general work setting and a quasi-experiment involving a student sample. In both studies, we examined the role of negative emotion differentiation in how individuals respond to negative emotions facing a need-laden affective event. The results supported our predictions, as high negative emotion differentiation weakened the negative relationship between general negative emotions and subsequent helping behavior (Study 1) and strengthened the positive relationship between negative moral emotions and helping behavior (Study 2). Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.

  • Are societal-level values still relevant measures in the twenty-first
           century businessworld' A 39-society analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Since the days of Hofstede (1980), cross-cultural comparisons of countries based on societal-level work values have been a norm. This approach has been represented more recently in Ronen and Shenkar’s (2013) 11 clusters of country cultures. However, more contemporary research found within-country heterogeneity of values/behaviors is substantial and growing exponentially across today’s twenty-first century businessworld. We investigated, across a sample of 39 societies, whether work values variance within societies was greater than work values variance across societies, and whether individual work values differences contributed more to predictions of behavioral performance criteria than the society in which the individuals lived. Both sets of analyses addressed how work values conceived at societal-levels are relevant in understanding the twenty-first century businessworld. Our findings revealed first that there was substantial within-society values heterogeneity, which resulted in the failure to replicate Ronen and Shanker’s (2013) societal cluster aggregations. Second, we found individual-level values contributed significantly to the prediction of employees’ behaviors, while societal-level values contributed substantially less. These findings strongly suggest that cross-cultural studies of work values predictive power are most relevant when conducted at the individual-level. Finally, we also make available for future investigators a 51-society database containing 11,780 individual-level records.

  • Export development of Taiwanese food and beverage processing SMEs: A test
           of a DOI model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study uses a diffusion of innovation framework to examine how small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SMEs’) export development is impacted by managerial perceptions of factors inhibiting or enhancing international activities. The focus on perceptions provides greater utility to the finding of this study, given the managerially controllable nature of the variables explored and the impetus on the long-term survival of the firm. A three-stage synthesized innovation diffusion model of internationalization is proposed and empirically tested via a survey of 172 managers of Taiwanese SMEs in the food and beverage processing sector. We profile the stages of export development by these SMEs and demonstrate the effect of managerial perceptions of inhibiting/enhancing factors on export stages and the moderating role of managerial commitment in the relationship between perceived inhibiting/enhancing factors and export stages. This paper adds to our understanding of factors that can facilitate SMEs' progression from pre-exporters to becoming established exporters. It concludes by discussing implications for international business scholars, managers, and policymakers.

  • A review of strategic management research on India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In 1991 India embarked on far-reaching economic, financial and regulatory reforms, which led to not only a surge in economic growth, but also spurred scholarly interest in Indian firms, their strategies, and their business environment. As it has been almost three decades since the reforms were initiated, we believe that it is an appropriate time to take stock of the research on strategic management in the Indian setting. Our scoping review finds three dominant themes in extant research: impact of environment (specifically liberalization) on firms, strategies of firms, and the different ownership structures of firms. We discuss the key findings within these domains and identify the theories and methods that scholars have used to address their research questions. We assert that the unique Indian context — a mix of public and private economy operating within a democratic system — provides a rich environment for not only testing existing theories in strategic management but also generating new theories. We conclude by identifying several important areas of research and urging strategy scholars to engage with the opportunities offered by the evolving Indian business environment.
