Blood banking systems in the United States over the past decade have been faced with a volatile demand for blood, specifically, a decrease in demand for red blood cells, for a variety of reasons. This change in the blood supply chain landscape, accompanied by an increasing emphasis on cost efficiency, is a driver of Mergers & Acquisitions between blood banks. In this paper, we first present supply chain network optimization pre- and post-merger models. The models handle perishability of the life...

Abstract For over four decades, IB scholars have been conceptualizing and empirically examining the organizational structure of the multinational corporation (MNC) without really placing relationships at the center of attention. It therefore remains unclear what characterizes those relationships beyond subunits’ roles, motivation, or control mechanisms. Relationship as a term has often been used but rarely defined in the IB literature on intra-firm networks. We develop arguments that position su...

Business closure and ending-competence are highly relevant concepts in a globalizing world economy where structural change is common. However, ending-competence in business closure situations is a rarely studied phenomenon, and prior theoretical development is modest. In this paper a conceptual model of ending-competence in business closure is developed. A case study examination of a business closure, involving a car manufacturing plant owned by Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd., allows further d...

The article provides an overview about the development of international business theory beginning with Hymer’s seminal contribution in 1960 and ending with a contribution by Engwall from 2006 that links institutionalization theory to the multinational firm. Building on these theoretical developments, the article gives new directions for research regarding the internationalization phenomenon of Colombian firms. Furthermore, it is suggested that universities in Colombia that offer international bu...

This paper takes its starting point in the literature dealing with "merger waves". A merger wave basically denotes a period of time when an abnormal amount of mergers and acquisitions takes place. Such merger waves are usually described as occurring in cyclical patterns, and a number of them have been described over the last centuries. Merger waves are mostly studied as a macro level phenomenon, as an aggregate of mergers and acquisitions occurring over time within an industry or in the general ...

This paper investigates the role of communicating organizational change to surrounding network members. Results from a case study from the Swedish dotcom crash show that communication with external actors help organizations undergoing organizational change to achieve desired responses and avoid unwanted reactions. The lack of external change communication creates a frightening situation characterized by uncertainty, anxiety and reliance on rumours and speculations.

According to business-to-business marketing rese...
