Abstract
Abstract The paradigms of transaction cost and social exchange are instrumental in developing joint venture research as well as its impact on flexibility of partners. However, extant research is scant regarding the type of flexibility that partners in joint venture are most impacted. In this study, we analyze the flexibility determinants in a sample of Indian cross-border joint ventures with G8 nations’ partner firms. The factors in the study as determinants of flexibility—termination flexibility and modification flexibility—are resource heterogeneity, trust, prior joint venture relationship, foreign equity, cultural distance, asymmetry in motives and foreign equity. We adopt a structural equation modeling approach for the study.

Focal Institute Focal institutes are institutes with noble mission, deep strength to be a leading contributor to a holistic industrial ecosystem. They are known for their outstanding contributions to at least local clusters, if not a state or a large country. They strive to develop capabilities to achieve balances and progress sustainably on an arduous journey of excellence if not world class (e.g. Altbach and Salmi 2011). In contexts, where knowledge creation (e.g. Nonaka and Takeuchi 1995) is ...

Abstract Firms play a key role in growth of India, and there is a need to enhance their competitiveness significantly. For that, they may need higher flexibility in their governance systems. This paper explores the relationship between flexibility in corporate governance (CG) mechanisms and international competitiveness (IC) in two knowledge-based industries in India during the period from 2006 to 2014. Using multiple regression model, the results suggest that flexibility in CG significantly aff...

Abstract Flexibility at the level of the enterprise alone would not be effective until the rest of the ecosystem is also flexible. The highest level of flexibility maturity would lie in the strategic flexibility for the ecosystem as a whole. The ecosystem of technology, partners, suppliers, market, regulators, application providers, financiers, and many other relevant actors and processes would create strategic flexibility for innovation, new product development, new market creation, and meeting...

Abstract The purpose of this study is to develop an acceptance model using a flexible strategy for the success of digital library (DL). Authors have conceptualized and developed a digital library acceptance model in this paper. Research begins with review of literature that helps the authors to put a theoretical schema for the model that is undergirded by the concepts of flexibility as envisaged in the concept of social construction of technology. Previous models of technology acceptance are ref...

This chapter presents a framework for informal economies in developing nations. It will explain linkages with the formal economies of both developing and developed nations as a function of national competitiveness . We develop propositions which explain how the dynamics and growth of the informal economy in developing nations are linked to the growth of the formal economy of developing/developed nations. The chapter illustrates the framework with the case of Jaipur Rugs and concludes with sugges...

Flexibility is well recognized as a predictor of organizational performance. There are two major contributors for creating more flexibility—one through technological changes and the other through attitudinal changes. The moot question is, which one of these two changes is more effective in bringing out flexibility in the organizations. Though flexibility can be enhanced by both the means, one may prove to be more effective than the other. The technological changes in terms of implementation of E...

Abstract The competitive advantage offered by flexibility has drawn considerable attention from the academic and practitioner community. The existing literature primarily focuses on means to achieve flexibility through information system (IS) exploitation. There is a noticeable absence of a comprehensive flexibility evaluation and implementation framework for organizations, engaged in the delivery of software products and services. This paper proposes twenty-three practices graded in six maturit...

This study answers the question of why JAZZ (a telecom service provider) is the market leader in Pakistan since 1992. The goal is to explore that despite the evolution of technology which has disrupted many industries, many companies lost their revenues but JAZZ as market leader continuously gained market share in the last two decades. To identify that the multidimensional customer experience model of Schmitt (J Mark Manag 15(1–3):53–67. https://doi.org/10.1362/026725799784870496, 1999) has been...

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine the elements of asymmetric motives, i.e., initial cross-border joint venture (CBJV) conditions and relative partner characteristics in emerging nations. The two main objectives of the present research are to identify the elements affecting asymmetric motives in Indian bilateral CBJV and to construct modified total interpretive structural modelling (TISM) for the identified elements of asymmetric motives. Design/methodology/approach For the current ...
The success of e-learning courses is normally measured in terms of the learning outcomes delivered, but when it comes to the success of the organizations that are in the business of delivering commercial e-learning courses, delivering learning outcomes only does not suffice. Commercial e-learning providers, to remain successful, have to meet the main expectations of the learners hidden behind the successful completion of the e-learning courses. The main expectation for a learner could mean obtai...

The study aims to examine the relationship between manager personality, strategic flexibility, and firm performance. Using the five-factor personality model, the study hypothesizes the relationship between manager personality and strategic flexibility. Further, we propose that strategic flexibility mediates the relationship between manger personality and firm performance. A sample of 162 managers from various automobile companies is used for conducting empirical analysis. The findings of the stu...

Researchers studying the alignment of business resources usually focus on business cases that inherently have continuous interactions built on long-term relationships at the firm level, dyadic level, or broader network level. While contractual limitations can be applied to resource alignment, resource engagement holds the notion of a persistent value-adding relationship. This paper proposes a theoretical framework based on previous theories and empirical studies on resource alignment ranging fro...
