Extant research presents a conflicting picture of change dynamics during institutional discontinuities. Some studies propose or depict formal rules as changing first. Others argue that norms need to change before formal rules can be revisited, let alone change. An examination of the literature suggests a contingency theory. In mature organisational fields with institutionalised informal rules, norms need to be questioned and changed before any change in formal rules can take place. On the other ...

Extent theory emphasizes the role of host country factors and home-host countries’ ‘distance’ on the choice of foreign investment location (FIL). This study argues host country networks constitute ...

We introduce the concept of International Coherence (IC) to describe the degree of relatedness in a multinational enterprise (MNE). We propose that IC hinges on the interplay of the relatedness between any two MNE units and the linkages that tie them together. Linkages can be thought of as the often costly “pipes” that allow the “content”, that is, resources and information that define relatedness, to “flow”. We argue that greater IC increases the potential of an MNE to generate economies by fac...

This study argues that globalization places demands on the firm’s managerial capabilities, which influence the board’s appointment of an internationally oriented CEO. A CEO’s international orientat...

We propose in this study revealed relatedness as a way to frame and capture more broadly the relatedness between two firms in two different countries. Revealed relatedness (RR) is the degree to which countries are efficiently combined within the investment portfolios of firms. Just as country distance, RR can be used as a proxy for the potential joint economies of operations and/or ownership of two average MNEs units in two different countries. We then explore both theoretically and empirically ...

The resource-based view of the firm has emphasized rare and valuable resources, their redeployment and capability development as a means of rent creation (Penrose, 1959). Hence, the organizational quest is to acquire and develop these resources and capabilities (Teece, Pisano, & Shuen, 1997). One such promising source is legitimacy, defined by Suchman (1995: 574) as the “generalized perception or assumption that the actions of an entity are desirable, proper, or appropriate within some socially ...

We propose that to be successful under major environmental changes, an organizational response must fit the new environmental contingencies. We employ the political and economic reforms in Latin America during the 1990s as a natural experiment in which to examine these phenomena. Increased market integration should lead firms to establish closer managerial coordination among subsidiaries to an extent proportional to the strength of external changes. Firms that retain under- or overstructured org...

The conventional approach in international business research is to consider and/or compute country distance as independent of individual and firm actions. Borrowing from Teece et. al. (1994), we propose in this paper an alternative approach that relies on ‘survivor’ data culled from the very actions of these individuals and/or firms to compute ‘country relatedness’, the inverse of distance. We then focus on country relatedness for investment decisions, defined as the degree to which there are ec...
