This study draws on the institutional void and institutional support perspectives to examine the contingent effect of institutional environments on the relationship between corporate religiosity and individual entrepreneurial activity in the context of emerging markets. We employ a composite dataset that covers 7109 individuals in 69 major cities across 25 provinces in China. Our study provides convincing evidence that individuals with strong corporate religiosity may be disinclined to conduct e...

The relationship between corporate giving and corporate financial performance has remained inconclusive after decades of research. This study advances our understanding by contending that stakeholders may react differently to a firm’s various levels of corporate philanthropic giving. The relationship between corporate giving and firm performance could be better captured using an S-curve shape in that either a low or high level of corporate giving will reduce, while a moderate level of corporate ...

Although the central question in the resource-based view (RBV) is what determines the value of resources, it is not easy to find research on how generic resources add value. However, lack of generic resources can be detrimental for the firm. We propose that the value of a generic resource depends on the acquiring firms’ resource stocks and on the extent to which the resource complements the firms’ existing resource stocks. Specifically, we predict that a new generic resource is more valuable to ...

To investigate the use of non-family versus family executives in family-dominated, publicly listed firms, we consider ownership concentration both at the firm level and within the dominant family. Whereas the appointment of family executives is supported by an institutional logic of family control, the use of non-family, professional executives is guided by a shareholder logic. We suggest that higher levels of ownership held by the dominant family relative to other shareholders propel family own...

How can a firm harness its resources for releasing the potential of entrepreneurial orientation (EO)? In this study we investigate the moderating roles of both internal and network resource mechanisms on the relationship between EO and firm performance. Specifically, we argue that organizational structure (centralization and formalization) and coordination (knowledge integration), as well as firms’ connections with external stakeholders (business versus institutional networks) are critical for m...

This paper analyzes the strategies by which Huawei, one of China’s few privately-owned multinational firms, responded to various windows of opportunity as technology, policy and demand changed during the evolution of the telecommunication industry between the late 1980s and 2014. Based on a historical longitudinal analysis, our in-depth case study unfolds the dynamic process by which Huawei utilized dual technology-building and market-seeking strategies to capitalize on those windows of opportun...

This study examines the human and relational capital attributes that enable Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) to acquire structural power in Chinese listed firms, and whether gender differences intervene in the attributes that explain this structural power. We show that CEOs with elite education, longer years of education and work experience and more outside directorships are more likely to gain structural power in Chinese listed firms. However, female CEOs are less likely than male CEOs to achiev...

Corporate entrepreneurship is becoming increasingly important for firms to gain competitiveness in the marketplace. Yet, insufficient knowledge has been accumulated on how to develop entrepreneurial behaviors within firms, specifically how firms are motivated to develop entrepreneurship and what managerial process facilitates the development process. Drawing on the literature of market orientation, human resource management (HRM) and corporate entrepreneurship, we propose a model in which the re...
