Abstract This paper argues that, when using a large database, organizational researchers would benefit from the use of specific multivariate exploratory data analysis (MEDA) before performing statistical modelling. Issues such as the representativeness of the database across domains (countries or sectors), assessment of confounding among categorical covariates, missing data, dimension reduction to produce performance indicators and/or remedy multicollinearity problems are addressed by specific M...

Summary Using a sample of 595 firms listed in the capital markets of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru for the period of 2000–2015, we confirm prior literature by showing that when power distribution among several large shareholders (contestability) increases, firms’ financial performance is enhanced. More interestingly, we find that these relations are even more significant in family-owned firms, emphasising the relevance of contesting control in this kind of firm. Furthermor...

Abstract It is widely accepted in word-of-mouth (WOM) research that weak ties have a greater macro-level impact than strong ties on the spread of WOM and that marketers should thus intentionally stimulate WOM between weak ties to optimize a given WOM campaign. Here, we challenge this idea based on the fact that, in practice, marketers often incorporate a WOM campaign into other forms of marketing activities, typically advertising. Using an agent-based modeling approach, we demonstrate that while...

Summary It may be surprising that one of the most popular compensation schemes in business is so open to being hacked – to having managers cheat to win. We explore tournament theory to detail its vulnerabilities to various forms of cheating unilateral and multilateral. We identify who is most likely to be involved and under what conditions. We describe the costs to the victims, to the firm, and to society. We outline the possible strategic effects – in terms of firm performance. And, we discuss ...

Abstract Entrepreneurs’ actions and attitudes towards business decisions are fundamental to new ventures. Building on Fauchart and Gruber (2011) , which identifies three types of entrepreneurial social identity (Darwinian, communitarian, and missionary), this study analyzes how these identities influence use of effectual and causal logic, while also explaining the effect of the culture of the country in which the entrepreneurship initiative is developed. Based on a survey of 5076 founders who cr...

Abstract While increasing the organizational identification of employees has been described as the ultimate goal of internal marketing and internal branding, one of its most common practices is to communicate organizational values both internally and externally. However, very little is known about the relative effectiveness of different types of organizational brand communication. Drawing from construal level theory, the current research investigates whether the degree of construal fit, defined ...
Abstract Current debates around talent management echo previous concern about the development of the field of IHRM. This paper uses historical analysis to examine two questions: has the field followed a logical progression and process of increasing coherence; and has its narrative been shaped in ideological ways? It identifies six concepts that guided and enabled the subsequent development of the talent management field. It shows how a selection of these ideas were re-packaged through the introd...

Abstract Rapid changes in demographics, technology and globalization have considerable global implications for work and the worker. This new context is also disrupting talent management as known for the last two decades. Progressive companies in all sectors realize that their talent management practices are no longer meeting the needs of their workers. Instead, employers focus their attention on developing a meaningful employee experience to attract and nurture the talent they need. A new breed ...

Abstract This paper aims to offer a critical reflection on the way Talent Management (TM) is investigated in practice, by addressing the key issues regarding the quality (in terms of rigor and relevance) of academic empirical TM research and therefore the critical scrutiny of TM scholars’ work. We will argue that despite the growth in the quantity, the quality of many empirical TM papers is lagging behind and hindering the progress of the academic field of TM. Based on a content analysis of 174 ...
