To catch up with their counterparts in global competition, emerging market firms (EMFs) need to build their innovative capabilities for new product development (NPD). Drawing on internationalisation and knowledge management perspectives, we extend Mathews' (2006) 'linkage-leverage-learning' (LLL) framework and present an exploratory analysis of how Chinese firms as an example of EMFs overcome their resource disadvantages and exploit internationalisation opportunities in facilitating their NPD. W...

Technological and innovation capabilities play an important role in determining the performance of firms, especially in knowledge intensive industries. Despite the plethora of studies testing the relationship between innovation capabilities and firm performance, little consensus has been achieved on the veracity of the theoretical claims. In this paper, we argue that the lack of consensus could be on account of the failure to take into account the endogeneity that arises from the decision proces...

We demonstrate the effect of ignoring the role of heteroskedasticity modelling in applied corporate finance studies and show that it may have important consequences in corporate financial decisions. In this paper, we specifically focus on the effect of heteroskedasticity on the factors affecting the open market operations of the firm. We show that in the absence of modelling heteroskedasticy results from prior research are consistent. By explicit modelling of heteroskedasticity some results are ...

This study investigates the differences in the salience of work and family identities between samples of employees in the United States and India. The authors hypothesized the effects of cultural differences on these workers' salient identities. Additionally, the authors hypothesized that across cultures a balance in the importance of family and work identities achieved by an individual would lead to greater job and life satisfaction and fewer intentions to turnover. Structural equation modeling...

This study examines the relationship between various dimensions of a firm’s technological innovation capabilities and its international performance. We use panel data with multiple indicators of firm level technological capabilities including generation, dissemination, strength and speed of innovation. We employ a quantile regression analysis which allowed us to test the impact of innovation capability on international performance of high, average and poor performers. Our empirical findings indi...

Practical project experience as a means of augmenting traditional classroom learning has long been viewed as a value adding curricular exercise. While students participating in the projects gain valuable skills that will enhance their personal marketability, successful projects also benefit the client companies involved and help enhance the image of the university. Substantial effort goes into planning and implementing such an experience and involves extensive coordination with multiple constitu...

In the era of globalisation and with the advent of knowledge economies, organisational innovation has assumed a critical role in enhancing economic performance of firms. Proponents of the Resource Based View of the firm and its more recent extensions such as the Knowledge Based View and Dynamic Capabilities Theory have suggested that generation, diffusion and application of organisational knowledge could be the source of sustained competitive advantage and superior performance of firms. While th...

INTRODUCTION At the convergence of entrepreneurship research and literature on international management, scholarly investigations of international entrepreneurial firms hold the promise of enriching and broadening both fields by bridging a gap that has long been overlooked. A renewed interest in entrepreneurial thinking and activity by government policy makers and industry leaders worldwide has added legitimacy to the field of international entrepreneurship (Fernandez & Nieto, 2006., Fletcher, 2...

Abstract The emergence and evolution of the multinational corporation is widely viewed as one of the most remarkable economic developments of the post-war business environment. The relationship between multinationality and firm performance has been the subject of numerous empirical investigations. Results of these studies have often been contradictory, with some researchers finding a positive relationship and others a negative relationship between multinationality and firm performance. Our study...

ABSTRACT While there is a widespread understanding among academicians and practitioners alike that corporate branding is one of the most critical objectives of a successful marketing strategy, the majority of the studies in this area have focused on the western multinationals. This paper empirically examines the degree of congruence between consumer brand image and the retailers' corporate image in the retail industry using an Asian sample.
