Abstract We examine the role of learning firm-specific advantages of small and medium size (SME) service firms in their internationalization. We focus on technical services that have received limited scholarly attention. We theorize that innovative born global firms build a set of capabilities in market, internal and relational learning that will provide new knowledge configurations to undertake technical and administrative innovations. Adopting an organizational sub-system view, we posit that m...

Abstract This study examines how B2B service firms organize and manage knowledge in order to deliver new value adding solutions and in turn competitive advantage, addressing calls for research into this important, yet neglected area. Specifically, this study: (1) examines the role of the antecedents of knowledge integration capability (KIC) in service innovation-led competitive advantage in project-oriented B2B service firms; and (2) models and empirically tests the links between KIC and service...

AbstractThe growing literature on innovation pays limited attention to the role of human resource management (HRM) innovation in creating competitive advantage. This paper adopts a knowledge-based approach to examine how firms design and implement HRM innovations (HRMIs) and how such innovations support competitive advantage. Drawing from multiple streams of literature and qualitative evidence from Australian manufacturing and service firms, our findings reveal that human resource (HR) functiona...

Addressing the need for conceptualization and operationalization of the social entrepreneurship construct, we propose a behavioral measure of social entrepreneurship orientation (SEO). We build on past qualitative work within the social entrepreneurship literature that contextualizes the behavioral entrepreneurship concept, and draw upon the emergent effectuation theory that captures entrepreneurial behavior in resource-constrained contexts. After surveying 507 U.S.-based social purpose organiza...

Mirabel is an Australian Children's Charity that was established in Victoria in 1998 to help children of drug-addicted parents and it now operates in New South Wales as well. Mirabel is the vision of Jane Rowe, who served as a drug and alcohol counsellor for over twenty years and in her work witnessed the devastating effects that drug use has on the children of drug users and the cycle of abuse that repeats itself through generations if action is not taken. Mirabel has been the first in the whol...

Abstract This paper sets out to understand how entrepreneurial founders of born global firms acquire, transform and deploy new knowledge resources for early internationalization. Adopting a dynamic capabilities view and using a sample of high-tech B-to-B firms, we report that the new firm's early entry into international markets is executed through three transitionary phases. Founders transform the operational capabilities they endow to the firm, develop dynamic capabilities for use in opportuni...

Despite growing recognition of the contribution of non-profits to the economy and societal well-being (Leo 2013; Lee et al. 2013), they operate in highly competitive environments. This, coupled with their internal resource constraints, has forced NFPs to be operationally innovative to remain financially viable and continue to deliver their social missions. Many NFPs have moved in the direction of undertaking income-generating activities, resulting in new business models of social enterprises and...

While the role of market learning in firm performance outcomes has been at the core of strategic marketing literature for over two decades, this research has been inconclusive. This paper attempts to resolve this by examining how market learning relates to other sources of learning. Adopting the capabilities view of competitive advantage and organizational learning approaches to innovation, we theorize that (a) market learning capability necessitates innovative firms to engage in network learnin...
