Previous research has intensively investigated the positive consequences of creative behaviors while the negative consequences have mostly been neglected. Based on the social comparison theory, the current research investigates coworker envy, workplace ostracism and incivility as the dark sides of creative process engagement, while the focal employee’s helping behavior is suggested to mitigate this negative influence. With a three-wave supervisor-employee matched data from China, our hypothesize...

In line with the recent shift of R&D internationalization towards developing Asia, this Perspective paper reviews, contextualises, and evaluates the evolving patterns of creation, transfer, and assimilation of knowledge in multinational enterprises (MNEs). A typology is proposed consisting of four stylized nodes: West (industrialized mature economies), East One (emerging industrializing economies of developing Asia), East Two (Asian economies at an earlier stage of industrialization), and East T...

One of the important roles which firm boards play is the resource provision role. In this study, we examine influence capital, a specific form of resource provision on boards. Two categories of government officials, i.e., Politicians and Bureaucrats tend to be the major providers of influence capital. While firm connections to politicians as board members has been examined in prior literature, connections to bureaucrats (and ex-bureaucrats) has not received the same level of attention. This is d...
This article examines the interrelations of institutions and entrepreneurship to illustrate how they co-evolve. It takes the government, the public, and entrepreneurs as the actors of formal and informal institutions and entrepreneurship respectively. Then, drawing on several related theories and an inductive study on China’s institutional transitions, it develops a three-phase framework to analyze both actions of the government, the public, and entrepreneurs and their interactions in the proces...

This study explores the impact of local protectionism on outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) and how firms respond to local protectionism in a transition economy. We find that local protectionism exerts a negative effect on the OFDI decisions of Chinese privately-owned enterprises (POEs). However, this negative impact is weakened by POEs’ corporate philanthropy strategy, whereas corporate political activity reinforces such an impact. This research extends the lens of institutional escapism ...

Boundary spanning is an important mechanism for the successful and efficient management of client-vendor relationships in Information Technology (IT) outsourcing. Vendors are often responsible for initiating boundary-spanning between the two parties, and the final effectiveness of boundary-spanning often hinges more on vendors rather than on clients. Boundary-spanners are individuals, who operate at the boundary of an organization, performing functions like external representation and informatio...

This study investigates whether corporate philanthropy is used as a countermeasure after product-harm crises in China, as a prime example of an emerging/transitional economy. From the lens of legitimacy theory, we argue that corporations may increase their post-crisis philanthropic giving for social legitimacy repair. By a difference-in-differences (DiD) design, we find significant increases in post-crisis philanthropic giving by corporations involved in product-harm crises. The positive relatio...

With the increase in overseas acquisitions by Chinese multinational enterprises (CMNEs), corporations face the challenge of designing and building global architecture to enhance their performance in post-acquisition integration. A well-known design rule that CMNEs could follow is the mirroring hypothesis. However, the effectiveness of this hypothesis in aligning a CMNE’s organizational structure with the underlying technical system after acquiring a new subsidiary remains unclear. Using a fuzzy ...
In this article I offer my comments on the “Cultural Roots of Compositional Capability in China: Balanced Moderation” (Zhou, Li, Zhou, & Prashantham, Asia Pacific Journal of Management, forthcoming, 2019) that extends the composition-based view (CBV) originally developed by Luo and Child (Management and Organization Review, 11(3): 379-411, 2015). Uniting congruity with novelty and integrating internal and external learning are important cultural conduits for compositional capability. I illustrat...
