  • Multivariate exploratory data analysis for large databases: An application
           to modelling firms’ innovation using CIS data

    • Abstract: Publication date: October–December 2019Source: BRQ Business Research Quarterly, Volume 22, Issue 4Author(s): Juan C. Bou, Albert SatorraAbstractThis paper argues that, when using a large database, organizational researchers would benefit from the use of specific multivariate exploratory data analysis (MEDA) before performing statistical modelling. Issues such as the representativeness of the database across domains (countries or sectors), assessment of confounding among categorical covariates, missing data, dimension reduction to produce performance indicators and/or remedy multicollinearity problems are addressed by specific MEDA. The proposed MEDA is applied to data from the Community Innovation Survey (CIS), a large database commonly used to analyse firms’ innovation activities, prior to fitting ordered logit and Tobit regression models. A set of recommended practices involving MEDA are proposed throughout the paper.
       
  • The influence of culture on the relationship between the entrepreneur's
           social identity and decision-making: Effectual and causal logic

    • Abstract: Publication date: October–December 2019Source: BRQ Business Research Quarterly, Volume 22, Issue 4Author(s): M. EstradaCruz, A.J. VerdúJover, J.M. GómezGrasAbstractEntrepreneurs’ actions and attitudes towards business decisions are fundamental to new ventures. Building on Fauchart and Gruber (2011), which identifies three types of entrepreneurial social identity (Darwinian, communitarian, and missionary), this study analyzes how these identities influence use of effectual and causal logic, while also explaining the effect of the culture of the country in which the entrepreneurship initiative is developed. Based on a survey of 5076 founders who created their own venture, the results support the conclusion that the cultural dimensions defined as avoiding uncertainty, individualism, long term orientation, and distribution of power influence decisions made using effectuation.
       
  • Cheat to win: How to hack tournament theory

    • Abstract: Publication date: October–December 2019Source: BRQ Business Research Quarterly, Volume 22, Issue 4Author(s): Richard J. ArendSummaryIt may be surprising that one of the most popular compensation schemes in business is so open to being hacked – to having managers cheat to win. We explore tournament theory to detail its vulnerabilities to various forms of cheating unilateral and multilateral. We identify who is most likely to be involved and under what conditions. We describe the costs to the victims, to the firm, and to society. We outline the possible strategic effects – in terms of firm performance. And, we discuss possible ways to address these vulnerabilities to the schemes we rely on to motivate managers to put in the right efforts, to take the right risks, and to lead the right way.
       
  • Strong ties versus weak ties in word-of-mouth marketing

    • Abstract: Publication date: October–December 2019Source: BRQ Business Research Quarterly, Volume 22, Issue 4Author(s): Hai-hua Hu, Le Wang, Lining Jiang, Wei YangAbstractIt is widely accepted in word-of-mouth (WOM) research that weak ties have a greater macro-level impact than strong ties on the spread of WOM and that marketers should thus intentionally stimulate WOM between weak ties to optimize a given WOM campaign. Here, we challenge this idea based on the fact that, in practice, marketers often incorporate a WOM campaign into other forms of marketing activities, typically advertising. Using an agent-based modeling approach, we demonstrate that while advertising serves as one source of information flow, the WOM that is most effective at driving product growth is created by strong rather than weak ties. The rationale behind this is simple: advertising competes against weak ties in disseminating information globally, and it is this global reach that has been widely considered the vital strength of weak ties over strong ties.
       
  • One size doesn't fit all: How construal fit determines the effectiveness
           of organizational brand communication

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 4 September 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): Dennis Herhausen, Sven Henkel, Petra KipfelsbergerAbstractWhile increasing the organizational identification of employees has been described as the ultimate goal of internal marketing and internal branding, one of its most common practices is to communicate organizational values both internally and externally. However, very little is known about the relative effectiveness of different types of organizational brand communication. Drawing from construal level theory, the current research investigates whether the degree of construal fit, defined as the extent to which the construal of communication matches an employee’s construal of headquarters, determines the relative impact of organizational brand communication. A series of studies consisting of two cross-industrial multilevel field studies and a lab experiment provide evidence that organizational brand communication with low-level (high-level) construal is more effective to target employees with low (high) social distance to headquarters. These findings suggest that construal fit qualifies the effectiveness of organizational communication.
       
  • A historical analysis of critiques in the talent management debate

    • Abstract: Publication date: July–September 2019Source: BRQ Business Research Quarterly, Volume 22, Issue 3Author(s): Paul SparrowAbstractCurrent debates around talent management echo previous concern about the development of the field of IHRM. This paper uses historical analysis to examine two questions: has the field followed a logical progression and process of increasing coherence; and has its narrative been shaped in ideological ways' It identifies six concepts that guided and enabled the subsequent development of the talent management field. It shows how a selection of these ideas were re-packaged through the introduction of new notions to build two competing narratives: a star performer perspective and a human capital management perspective. It examines the progressive critiques and problems that then had to be solved to address these concerns. There is evidence of periodic ideological re-interpretations of talent management but there has nonetheless been a logical, progressive and issues-driven evolution of ideas in the field into which the current critical perspectives must now be fitted.

  • A feminist poststructuralist critique of talent management: Toward a more
           gender sensitive body of knowledge

    • Abstract: Publication date: July–September 2019Source: BRQ Business Research Quarterly, Volume 22, Issue 3Author(s): Yasmeen Makarem, Beverly Dawn Metcalfe, Fida AfiouniAbstractThe field of talent management (TM) has grown over the last two decades, and much theoretical and methodological progress has been made in an effort to better conceptualize the field. Despite these efforts, the construction of knowledge within TM research has ignored power and gender dynamics. In this paper, we adopt a feminist poststructuralist perspective and unveil how talent management theory is underpinned by predominant masculinist discourses that create and sustain business elites in a neoliberal world order. Based on a textual and discourse analysis of foundational texts on TM, we identify the power effects of language in shaping current TM theory. This study raises questions concerning the epistemological foundations of talent management as objective, neutral, and observable. We suggest that future researchers adopt critical methods of inquiry to ensure that gender and equity issues are interrogated within dominant talent management writings.
       
  • HR disruption—Time already to reinvent talent management

    • Abstract: Publication date: July–September 2019Source: BRQ Business Research Quarterly, Volume 22, Issue 3Author(s): Lisbeth ClausAbstractRapid changes in demographics, technology and globalization have considerable global implications for work and the worker. This new context is also disrupting talent management as known for the last two decades. Progressive companies in all sectors realize that their talent management practices are no longer meeting the needs of their workers. Instead, employers focus their attention on developing a meaningful employee experience to attract and nurture the talent they need. A new breed of talent management practitioners is developing an HR stack that includes other management frameworks such as design thinking, agile management, behavioral economics and analytics to augment their HR competencies. Organizations will be unable to reinvent their existing talent management practices in a sustainable way unless they broaden the talent management conversation.
       
  • Enabling effective talent management through a macro-contingent approach:
           A framework for research and practice

    • Abstract: Publication date: July–September 2019Source: BRQ Business Research Quarterly, Volume 22, Issue 3Author(s): Karin A. King, Vlad VaimanAbstractThe forces and systems, which shape the available supply, composition and flow of talent into and out of organisations today have become increasingly complex and fluid. Most firms today extend their operations across regions and many compete globally, existing within one or more external contexts, known as macro talent management systems (MTM). Shaped by economic, political, regulatory, technological, and cultural conditions, MTM has the potential to directly or indirectly empower or disrupt organisational ability to attract, engage, and retain the talent crucial to achieving competitive business objectives. Yet organisations today may overlook the influence of external MTM systems to complement or constrain organisational talent management effectiveness, limiting the firm's ability to generate benefit and mitigate risk stemming from variance in macro talent contexts. Introducing a macro-contingent view of talent management, this paper identifies three pivotal shifts needed to enable effective talent management practice and proposes a framework for future research.
       
  • Centrality in networks of geographically proximate firms and competitive
           capabilities

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 14 May 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): Bárbara Larrañeta, F. Xavier Molina-Morales, Ines HerreroAbstractWe examine how a firm's centrality within a network of geographically proximate firms affects its competitive capabilities. Our study of the total population of one Spanish cluster of fishing firms shows that the effects of centrality on a firm's competitive capabilities are contingent on the effects of two relational characteristics of its direct ties: strength and degree of cognitive cohesion. Specifically, our results indicate that the centrality of a firm within the cluster network enhances its competitive capabilities as the strength of its direct ties increases. Further, firms can capture the value of centrality for enhancing competitive capabilities with a combination of strong (or weak) direct ties and low (or high) in degree of cognitive cohesion. We contribute to the network and strategy literatures by reconciling conflicting results with regard to the strategic benefits of a firm's centrality in a cluster and the relational characteristics of its direct ties.
       
  • Nostalgia decreases green consumption: The mediating role of past
           orientation

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): Xuehua Wang, Chen-Ho ChaoAbstractNostalgia, a sentimental longing for one's past, can influence consumption behavior. The present research investigates how nostalgia affects green consumption. Specifically, we propose that high nostalgia, chronic or primed, can lower consumers’ preference for green (vs. regular) products. Results across four studies show that high-nostalgia consumers have lower preference for green products compared to low-nostalgia consumers. This effect is mediated by past orientation, such that high-nostalgia consumers tend to dwell on the past, which brings preference to the older products, usually regular rather than green ones that have future connotations, they grew up with. In addition, we find that mortality salience moderates the effect of nostalgia on green product preference, such that the negative effect of nostalgia on the preference for green products would be enhanced (vs. mitigated) when mortality salience is high (vs. low). Implications for research and practice are discussed.
       
  • Risk-taking behavior, earnings quality, and bank performance: A profit
           frontier approach

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 April 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): MªPilar García-Alcober, Diego Prior, Emili Tortosa-Ausina, Manuel IlluecaAbstractAfter the financial crisis of 2007–2008, some bank performance dimensions have been the subject of debate, two of which are bank efficiency, and bank risk-taking behavior. The literature on bank efficiency and productivity has grown considerably over the last three decades, and has gained momentum in the aftermath of the financial crisis. Interest in bank risk-taking behavior, usually focusing on its links to monetary policy, has been relatively low, but has also increased exponentially in more recent years. This paper combines these two streams of research. Specifically, we test whether more inefficient banks take greater risks when selecting borrowers, charging interests and requiring collateral, and whether these links between inefficiency and risk change according to the type of bank. Our analysis centers on the Spanish banking system, which has been severely affected by the burst of the housing bubble and has undergone substantial restructuring. To test our hypotheses, we created a database with information on banks and savings banks, their borrowers (non-financial firms), and the links between them. The study also contributes to the literature by considering a novel profit frontier approach. Our results suggest that more inefficient banks take greater risks in selecting their borrowers, and that this high-taking behavior is not offset by higher interest rates.
       
  • Multilevel research: Foundations and opportunities in management

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 April 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): José F. Molina-Azorín, Jorge Pereira-Moliner, María D. López-Gamero, Eva M. Pertusa-Ortega, Juan José TaríAbstractThe purpose of this methodological insight is to analyze the foundations of multilevel research, answering two main questions: why this methodological approach is important for management research and how to conduct a multilevel study. We examine why multilevel research is relevant, emphasizing its potential, opportunities and basic principles. Moreover, we point out the main theoretical, methodological and analytic aspects to be considered for an appropriate application of multilevel research. The paper refers throughout to the basic literature on multilevel research, reviewing conceptual, methodological and empirical works.
       
  • Net operating working capital and firm value: A cross-country analysis

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 4 April 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): Sonia Baños-Caballero, Pedro J. García-Teruel, Pedro Martínez-SolanoAbstractHere we use a sample of firms from 30 countries during the period 1995–2013 to examine the relationship between net operating working capital (NWC) and firm value. Specifically, we show that the value of NWC varies across countries and that it depends on both investor protection and a country's financial and economic development. Our findings imply that shareholders value NWC more in countries with strong enforcement of investor rights, and greater financial and economic development.
       
  • The effect of socioemotional wealth on the relationship between
           entrepreneurial orientation and family business performance

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 March 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): Remedios Hernández-Linares, Franz W. Kellermanns, María Concepción López-Fernández, Soumodip SarkarAbstractThis study examines how five key entrepreneurial orientation (EO) dimensions—risk taking, innovativeness, proactiveness, competitive aggressiveness, and autonomy—impact family business performance, as well as the moderating effect of socioemotional wealth (SEW) on these relationships. The findings, based on a sample of 609 Spanish and Portuguese family firms, reveal that not all EO dimensions are equally important for performance, as only proactiveness, competitive aggressiveness, and autonomy were significant. However, we also find that the EO–performance relationship is affected by concern for SEW preservation, as our SEW measure moderates risk taking positively and innovativeness negatively.
       
  • Institutional shareholding as a corporate governance mechanism that drives
           ceo pay

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 March 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): María Consuelo Pucheta-Martínez, Carlos Chiva-OrtellsAbstractWe explore the effect of institutional directors on CEO pay (total, fixed and variable compensation). We delve particularly into the impact of pressure-sensitive and pressure-resistant institutional directors, who respectively represent institutional investors who maintain and investors who do not maintain a business relationship with the firm whose board they serve on. Focusing on CEO total pay, the findings show that institutional and pressure-resistant directors on boards behave similarly, affecting CEO total pay in a nonlinear way: as the presence of institutional and pressure-resistant directors on boards increases, the monitoring hypothesis prevails, and subsequently, better corporate governance decreases CEO total pay. However, when their presence on boards exceeds a critical point, the entrenchment hypothesis holds, thereby leading to an increase in CEO total pay. Contrary to our predictions, pressure-sensitive directors do not affect CEO total pay. Regarding the CEO's compensation structure (fixed and variable), the results suggest that institutional and pressure-resistant directors increase fixed compensation and reduce variable pay, while pressure-sensitive directors affect neither fixed nor variable compensation. This evidence supports the view that institutional directors should be considered as a heterogeneous collective.
       
  • A comparative analysis of profit inefficiency and productivity convergence
           between Taiwanese and Chinese banks

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 14 March 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): Xiang Chen, Tsu-Tan Fu, Jia-Ching Juo, Ming-Miin YuAbstractTo insure a proper and meaningful productivity assessment of DMUs with different production technology, this paper develops a difference-based profit metafrontier Luenberger productivity indicator. Adopting the proposed model, we empirically measure the profit inefficiency and examine the profit productivity convergence for samples banks consisting of 31 Taiwanese banks and 50 Chinese city banks over 2010–2014. Empirical results show that Chinese banks perform better in profit efficiency than Taiwanese banks. While Chinese banks have better technology in profit creation than Taiwanese banks, the latter may reap much higher profit gain than the former if they can adopt the profit metafrontier. The results of the profit metafrontier Luenberger productivity indicator analysis show that both Chinese and Taiwanese banks have experienced declines in profit productivity. However, the results also indicate a divergence in productivity growth for Chinese city banks and a convergent productivity growth for Taiwanese banks.
       
  • The internal mechanisms of entrepreneur´s social capital: A
           multi-network analysis

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 2 February 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): Carlos Hernández-Carrión, Carmen Camarero-Izquierdo, Jesús Gutiérrez-CillánAbstractThe present work addresses how and to what extent the personal and professional relationship networks of small-scale local entrepreneurs help improve their scarce resource endowments. Adopting a mechanistic and functioning oriented view of social capital, the paper suggests the existence of two different mechanisms which may explain the enrichment and entrepreneurial exploitation processes of social capital's resources: (1) the resource mechanism, based on a network's size and diversity, providing quantity and variety of social capital resources, and (2) the exchange mechanism, based on a network's cohesion and relational quality, favouring the interchangeability of these resources among network members. The empirical study individually explores both the personal and professional networks of 958 Spanish entrepreneurs. Findings reveal how the two mechanisms are necessary and mutually complementary, although the resource mechanism proves more advantageous when exploiting personal networks, whereas the exchange mechanism prevails in the case of professional networks.
       
  • A contingency view of alliance management capabilities for innovation in
           the biotech industry

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 2 February 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): Carmen Cabello-Medina, Antonio Carmona-Lavado, Gloria Cuevas-RodriguezAbstractIn this research, we analyze the influence of two alliance management capabilities, coordination and interorganizational learning, on the performance of alliances for innovation. By adopting a contingency view, we explore whether the effectiveness of these capabilities depends on certain features of the alliance portfolio configuration (partner and geographic diversity). Based on a sample of Spanish companies belonging to the five leading biotech clusters, our results demonstrate that alliance management capabilities are not equally effective across different contexts. Alliance coordination capabilities become more effective when partner diversity is low and geographic diversity is high. By contrast, interorganizational learning capabilities have a positive effect on alliance portfolio performance when partner diversity is high and geographic diversity is low. These results also have useful implications for managers involved in alliances for innovation, who can direct the organizational efforts towards the most effective alliance capabilities, depending on the features of their alliance portfolio.
       
  • When geography matters: International diversification and firm performance
           of Spanish multinationals

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 5 January 2019Source: BRQ Business Research QuarterlyAuthor(s): Xavier Mendoza, Christian Espinosa-Méndez, Luis Araya-CastilloAbstractThis paper studies how the nature and shape of the relationship between international diversification (ID) and performance (P) may vary according to a firm's geographical focus of internationalization. Using a sample of Spanish multinational firms for the 2004–2012 period we find an M-shaped relationship. However, significant differences are found when the different geographical foci of internationalization are considered. Strong support is found when firms adopt a regional focus (an inverted S-curve when the ID measure refers to the number of foreign countries and an M-curve when it refers to the size of the network of foreign subsidiaries), a biregional focus (an S-curve) and a semiglobal focus (an inverted S-curve but also an M-curve with foreign subsidiaries). These findings and their pattern suggest the critical importance of the country of origin and the geographical focus of internationalization in explaining the relationship between ID–P.
