We extend strategy-as-practice and strategy process studies of strategic planning by detailing empirically how its execution can take on an inter-unit coordination role in multi-business, multi-unit firms. In our case study of a firm in Bangkok, Thailand, we show how practitioners in diverse business and functional units coordinate their respective internal planning processes in a differentiated network of inter-unit strategic planning links. We specify four types of inter-unit planning link acc...

This study examines the role of competitive aggressiveness in the relationship between top management team (TMT) collective efficacy and firm performance under the contextual influence of TMT trust. Based on a sample obtained from 376 top executives in 147 firms in Taiwan, we find that competitive aggressiveness is a key mediator in converting TMT collective efficacy into advantageous performance. Moderated-mediation analyses further show that the mediating effect of competitive aggressiveness i...

The relationship between CEO age and corporate risk-taking has remained inconclusive after decades of research. This study contends that CEO may have different risk-taking propensities at different age stages and the relationship could be better captured by nonlinear function. Using a large sample of 6169 firm-year observations of public listed companies in Malaysia, we study the risk-taking behaviour of CEO for the period of 2009 to 2017. We find that CEO age has an inverse U-shaped relationshi...

Recent analysis of family firm internationalization has shown that international performance can suffer when family owners or managers engage in an unwarranted, strict separation between two ‘generic categories’ of resources in their strategic decision-making. On the one hand, there are resources perceived as ‘being part of the family in the long run’, and therefore unique and worthy of nurturing. On the other hand, there are resources perceived as ‘with the family only for the short run’, and t...

The dynamic growth of Asia Pacific markets has attracted US firms’ entry and expansion, aiming to exploit their resources and capabilities. This study empirically examines the effect of technological capabilities on these firms’ scale and scope of internationalization in this region. The results show that family firms have weaker technological capabilities compared to non-family firms and do not benefit as much from these capabilities in their internationalization efforts. Further, the results i...

We address the challenges in understanding how family ownership shapes international business across institutional contexts in and beyond the Asia-Pacific, a region with diverse and often contradictory approaches to internationalization and family firms. We begin by introducing the topic and summarizing the papers in the special issue. We then develop a multi-level framework for understanding internationalization of family firms consisting of individual/family, family firm and institutional leve...

Integrating the self-serving effect of voice with the literature that emphasizes the prosocial motive of voice behavior, this study investigates the possibility of a U-shaped curvilinear relationship between job satisfaction and voice behavior. The findings show that different voice beliefs (employees’ prosocial and self-protective voice beliefs) moderate the U-shaped curvilinear relationship with distinct patterns. Specifically, for employees with a stronger prosocial voice belief the relations...

Integrating the institution-based view and the resource-based view, this article explores the contingent effects of national institutions and firm resource bases on the relationships between strategic orientations—i.e., entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and market orientation (MO)—and firm performance. This is accomplished through a meta-analysis of 160 independent samples reported in 154 studies drawing from 35,367 organizations in 33 countries (22 developed and 11 emerging economies). Consideri...

Chinese management research aims to contribute to global management knowledge by offering rigorous and innovative theories and practical recommendations both for managing in China and outside. However, two seemingly opposite directions that researchers are taking could prove detrimental to the healthy development of Chinese management research. We argue that the two directions share a common ground that lies in the mindset regarding the confidence in the work on and from China. One direction of ...
