Abstract
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 from resource-based views to more complex network views of social organizational interactions and their implications for business performance activities. The main challenge comes from time-bound transactions built around the longevity of interorganizational relations. Thus, the key strategic management problem is how resources and capabilities can be rapidly aligned and managed in a time-bound network to achieve sustainable competitive advantages at the network level.

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 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 flexibilit...

The open source phenomenon has made a significant impression, not only on the software industry, but also on software-intensive organizations in both the public and private sectors. The collaborative model offered by the open source ecosystem can potentially change the collective nature of organizations and is claimed to increase innovation and technology adoption while reducing costs. These potential advantages are influencing how organizations acquire software and are leading to significant ad...

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...

This paper investigates the role of international joint venture (IJV) adaptation in the relationship between environmental uncertainty and IJV performance. Four hypotheses are developed concerning this relationship, predicting a direct positive relationship between uncertainty and adaptation (H1); a direct negative relationship between uncertainty and performance (H2); a direct positive relationship between adaptation and performance (H3); and a mediating effect of IJV adaptation on the relation...

Concern related to green and sustainability is growing from past few years in the research area of supply chain management. Collectively, these concerns involves a higher number of interacting factors, which further can multiply complexity by the decrease in visibility of the risks in supply chain operations and so add to its vulnerability. To make supply chain (SC) capable to bear simultaneously regular and risk condition, one requires proactive planning and flexibility in the decisions making....

The construction industry in India, despite being second largest industry, next only to agriculture, in terms of its contributions to infrastructure and employment has received inadequate attention from the policy makers. As the economy grew fast, many companies found themselves unable to meet the market demand. The expected outlay for infrastructure development in the next 5 years (2012–2017) is projected to be over one trillion US dollar. The current production and handling capacities of const...

Abstract Case study research is the most popular research method for researchers in industrial marketing. However despite a number of attempts the problem of satisfactorily justifying the use of case research remains. This paper proposes critical realism as a coherent, rigorous and novel philosophical position that not only substantiates case research as a research method but also provides helpful implications for both theoretical development and research process. The article describes the criti...

Due to digitalization today, we are more connected than ever before in human history. Access to the Internet has increased from 16 million in 1995 to 4157 million users by the end of December 2017. The industry which helped humanity connected and made the world a global village is the telecommunication industry. However, today the telecom companies are facing revenue losses; for instance, revenue of value-added services of telecom companies in Pakistan has reduced from Rs 5861 million in 2012 to...
