Abstract [en]

By adopting a processual and dynamic view on internationalization, we

develop the concepts of acceleration and deceleration, providing analytical tools to

enhance our understanding of the non-linearity and multidimensionality of internationalization.

We argue that acceleration and deceleration are embedded in the

internationalization process and are a consequence of the firm’s capability to absorb

and integrate acquired knowledge, and to find and exploit opportunities. In addition,

we advance the idea that changes in speed are further influenced by how the firm

integrates and coordinates the resources it has deployed within and across various

internationalization dimensions. Thus, it emerges that the overall evolution of

commitment to internationalization is more complex than received theories tend to

present; therefore, empirical studies should aim to include a wide set of international

activities and processes embedded in time.
