Abstract
The resource-based view (RBV) of the firm has become an influential theoretical perspective in recent international business (IB) research. Tracking the evolution of the RBV literature in IB, this article has three objectives. First, it documents the extent to which the RBV has diffused to IB research. Second, it explains the rationale behind such diffusion. Finally, it provides a state-of-the-art review of the substantive work through a proposed organizing framework, focusing on multinational management, strategic alliances, market entries, international entrepreneurship, and emerging markets strategies. Overall, a broad, expanding, and cumulative knowledge base is emerging to connect IB and strategy research through the RBV. The article concludes with a discussion of the implications of such a development in the intellectual marketplace, with an emphasis on future research directions.

The study extends research on the geographic scope, product diversification and performance relationship by exploring both the antecedents and consequences of geographic scope (multinationality). In so doing, it addresses a fundamental criticism of the geographic scope-performance relationship; namely, that the observed positive relationship between geographic scope and performance is spurious because it is the possession of proprietary assets that are the foundation of superior performance, not...

Given the paucity of corporate governance research on Third World multinational enterprises (MNEs), we provide an exploratory description of the patterns of interlocking directorates as corporate governance in Thailand-based MNEs in this study. Specifically, we raise a key question: Do the interlocks network attributes and individual board directors of MNEs differ systematically from those of non-MNEs? Drawing upon resource dependence theory, we hypothesize that, compared with non-MNEs, MNEs in ...

This article reports a comparative case study of four international joint ventures created between the United States and the People’s Republic of China. The findings of this study suggest that the relative bargaining power of potential joint-venture partners significantly contributes to the structural configuration of the joint venture with respect to parent control, and that the structure of management control exercised by the parents affects venture performance. Several informal control mechan...

Determining which business activities to bring inside a firm and which to outsource is a critical strategic decision. Firms that bring in the wrong business activities risk losing strategic focus; those that fail to bring the right business activities within their boundaries risk losing their competitive advantage. A well-developed approach for determining a firm's boundary, called transactions cost economics, specifies the conditions for managing a particular economic exchange within an organiz...

We demonstrate variation in the extent to which firms benefit from their affiliation with Chilean business groups in the 1988-1996 period. The net benefits of unrelated diversification are positive if group diversification exceeds a threshold level, though this threshold increases with time. We find evidence of non-diversification related group benefits, which atrophy over time. We conjecture that the evolution of institutional context alters the value creating potential of business groups, thou...

Filling a gap in the interlocks literature which has been largely centered on the West, we present preliminary data on the pattern of interlocking directorates among the top 200 largest corporations in pre-1997 Hong Kong. Then we identify four separate groups of firms in Hong Kong, and suggest propositions based on the resource dependence perspective on the critical relationships among their interlocking directorates, firm strategies, and performance. These propositions have the potential to for...

The spectacular surge in Chinese outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) has been reinforced by China’s accession to the WTO (2001). The understanding of their determinants remains a key theoretical question, in particular whether they confirm the standard conceptual framework - ‘ownership’, ‘location’, ‘internalisation’ (OLI) and ‘linkages’ (augmenting competences by learning). The paper argues that the determinants of Chinese OFDI change over time and converge toward global strategies, via a ...

Until recently entry mode studies focused largely on the choices made by North American and European firms and entry mode choices of firms from developing countries were largely neglected. In recent years the focus of entry mode research has attempted to remedy this neglect in large part because of the rapid economic growth that has taken place in several emerging economies and, increasingly, the rapid increase in their direct investments in foreign markets. China is perhaps the most frequently ...

The aim of this paper is to analyze the internationalization strategies followed by enterprises in the world, distinguishing between big enterprises and other firms (SMEs). In particular, we want to delve into determinants of internationalization and processes that allow companies to perform in international markets according to their resources. We developed an analytical framework based on the resources-based view of the firm and on two internationalization models, the Uppsala and Born-Global m...

With the increasing importance of early internationalizing firms (EIFs), recent literature has shown a rapidly growing research interest in EIF performance. To enhance our understanding of what drives EIF performance, we conduct a systematic analysis of performance antecedents and performance measures in current empirical research. This method allows us to: (i) systematically analyze EIF literature to identify how performance has been examined empirically; (ii) methodically identify and synthesi...
