We develop a typology of three-way interaction models in order to stimulate more Asia management studies using this approach. In this paper, we explain how to approach moderation based on three-way interactions, introduce three types of three-way interaction models, and provide the appropriate post-hoc statistical procedures accordingly. We also outline several future research examples to demonstrate how three-way interactions can be used in Asian management research.

High-technology small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are compelled to innovate to differentiate themselves from their competitors but at the same time be efficient, as they do not have economies of scale enjoyed by larger organizations. This qualitative study explores this paradoxical challenge faced by Hong Kong SMEs in designing their business model to strike such a balance. In doing so, it investigates the competencies of these firms in technology management and their innovation practice...

This study contextualizes the agency theory perspective in the Chinese setting to better understand the determinants of tunneling by controlling shareholders, a well-known form of principal-principal (PP) conflicts in corporate governance. Specifically, we examine how owner identity, managerial agency, and subnational institutional environments individually and collectively shape the severity of tunneling in Chinese publicly listed firms from 2005 to 2010. The empirical analysis shows that local...

Our study examines how a multinational corporation (MNC) shifts production across its international subsidiary network in response to an economic crisis and how attributes of intra-MNC production shifts (IPSs) affect MNC performance. We argue that when an MNC faces an economic crisis, the magnified cross-national differences in economic conditions give it clear direction for production shifts, thereby reducing the incidence of its IPSs. However, this negative relationship weakens if an MNC has a...

In this paper, we examine government influence on the acquisition behavior of Chinese firms. Drawing from the state capitalism literature, we test hypotheses regarding the effect of provincial government ownership and managerial ties respectively on industry relatedness of firm acquisitions. We furthermore test hypotheses concerning the moderating effect of institutional development and governor age and tenure. We test our hypotheses based on analysis of 346 majority acquisition deals completed ...

We report a study of risky decision-making in a dynamic risk environment, looking in particular at idea that variations in risk preferences over time are subject to both risk adaptation and ability to differentiate negative emotions. In a between-group experiment, 175 participants completed 20 binary project investment decisions under three objective probabilities of success conditions (20%, 50%, and 80%). The results showed that participants’ risk-taking increased at Time 2 only when risky proj...

This study investigates how Japanese MNEs are adapting their ownership choices to accommodate China’s economic liberalization. Drawing upon the institution-based view of the firm, we propose an institutional response model that is simultaneously based on the progress of economic liberalization and the accumulation of subsidiary experience. This model suggests that Japanese MNEs increasingly adopt higher ownership levels in their subsidiaries because of the combined effects of deepening deregulat...

An important research issue concerns the effects of gender diversity on organizational performance. Over the years, gender diversity has largely been discussed at the group level or the level of the business unit at most. It has not been widely studied at the level of the organization as a whole. Moreover, such studies have resulted in mixed findings. Diversity does not necessarily improve work performance, often times its relationship with performance can be negative. Drawing on the dynamic cap...

We investigate how uncertainty-ridden task environments simultaneously trigger both positive and negative coping behaviors among front-line service employees. We suggest that complex and non-routine tasks give rise to employees’ exercise of both creative discretion such as adaptive selling and deviant discretion such as unethical selling behavior. Moreover, customer control moderates these relations by constraining employees’ adaptive selling and encouraging unethical selling. We propose three-w...
