Abstract This paper empirically examines the contingent effect of product-related diversification on B2B firms' pricing strategy. Drawing our arguments from the recent advances in corporate strategy (i.e., resource-based view of the firm and product diversification strategy) and industrial marketing literatures, we argue that product-related diversifiers are more capable in adopting a high rather than a low pricing strategy. We also contend that this relationship will be positively moderated by ...

Abstract Strategic foresight encompasses thinking and organizing differently within the contingencies of the present in ways that is mindful of the unpredictable future. Building on the Ricoeurian notion of distentio - ‘the stretching of consciousness through simultaneous attention to memory and expectation’, we develop the concept of distentive capability as a spatio-temporal process of ‘way-finding’ that sustains the creative emergence of strategic foresight across multiple time horizons. Emph...

Extant research indicates that the performance effect of international diversification is debatable, and to a great extent is contingent upon a number of firm- and country-specific characteristics. We argue that a critical factor determining the behaviour of the above relationship is the event of acquisition, and more specifically the conditions under which the acquisition takes place. Drawing on resource dependence theory, this paper examines the relationship between international diversificati...

We adopt a Penrosean perspective to study the effect of rapid international expansion on the subsequent divestment of international operations. We draw on regional strategy theory and differentiate Penrosean managerial resources by their geographical fungibility to argue that the effect of rapid international expansion on the divestment of international operations varies with the regional patterns of firms’ international expansion and international experience. We test our hypotheses using two-st...

Despite the fact that many firms simultaneously expand into multiple new markets, we know very little about why firms choose this type of international expansion instead of sequentially entering new markets. Drawing on the resource-based view (RBV) we argue that in order to engage in simultaneous international expansion firms have to be able to draw on intangible assets, be financially strong, and have international experience that will enable them to reduce and/or shoulder the strains on manage...

This empirical study examines the relationship between corporate governance and organisational performance (OP), measured in Tobin’s Q in the context of an emerging economy for which, as yet, only a handful of studies have been conducted. We employ a System GMM approach controlling for endogeneity, and test it on a newly created dataset comprising 324 stock exchange-listed firms in Pakistan. We find that Board size, number of Board committees and Ownership concentration are positively linked wit...
