Abstract Organizational ambidexterity literature has emphasized the importance for firms to engage in dual activities of exploration (knowledge breadth) and exploitation (knowledge depth). However, little research has been done regarding what strategies firms need to adopt in order to achieve these two competing goals. This paper seeks to understand how different R&D alliance portfolio configuration strategies affect firms' ability to develop knowledge breadth and knowledge depth. The central ar...
What is the precise nature of the relationship between a firm’s research and development alliance portfolio size and its innovation output? The existing literature is inconclusive between a positive linear relationship and a nonlinear variant. To address the issue, this study explores the relationship between alliance portfolio size and innovation output in the context of the pharmaceutical industry. Contrary to previous investigations, our results suggest increasing returns at a diminishing rat...

Following the on-line publication of the above article several errors have come to light that require clarification in the form of an erratum. First, table 1 identifies Gilad Chen (University of Maryland) as the 27 highest impact overseas Chinese strategy scholar. This is an error. Professor Chen is not primarily a strategy scholar nor can he be categorized as an overseas Chinese individual. In the revised manuscript, it is available from the editor-in-chief. Gilad Chen has been removed from Tab...

Overseas Chinese scholars play an important role in the field of management and organization studies. In this paper, we summarize high impact strategy research to rank overseas Chinese scholars’ productivity in the field of strategic management based on papers published between 1991 and 2011 in the top 24 business journals defined by the University of Texas at Dallas and three additional journals with an expressed mission of publishing and developing research focused upon China and the Asia Paci...
This study investigates the relationships between the two knowledge dimensions (knowledge breadth and knowledge depth) and two types of innovations (radical innovation and incremental innovation). While existing literature identifies knowledge in general as an important driver of innovation, the exact relationships between knowledge breadth/depth and incremental/radical innovations are not clear. Drawing from the knowledge-based view, this study advances the understanding of the relationships be...

The formation of R&D alliances has become an increasingly popular way to achieve improved innovation outcomes. However, R&D alliances face high failure rates due to the dual nature, cooperation and competition, of what can be a very challenging inter-firm relationship, a problem that is compounded when an alliance involves more than two partners. As such, it is important to understand the mechanisms that encourage cooperation in multilateral alliances to help firms achieve desired innovation out...
While a firm can choose to develop an innovation internally or externally, the internal knowledge development and external knowledge acquisition tend to interact with each other in the innovation process. The present study examines whether internal technological strength and external competitor alliance participation serve as complements or substitutes in innovation development. Built on the knowledge-based view, this study offers a contingency perspective on the nature of knowledge integration ...

This article offers a contingency framework of global strategy implementation effectiveness on firm performance. The research question we seek to address is what the structural and process requirements are for MNEs to successfully implement global strategy through increased efficiency and effectiveness of integration and coordination across world markets. Our central premise is that MNEs’ capabilities in establishing supporting structural and process mechanisms will enhance the effectiveness and...
