Abstract [en]

This paper offers a systematic review of the international business, strategy, and general management literatures, analyzing 90 empirical studies from 30 major journals between 1977 and 2017, with focus on (1) research settings, (2) measurements of key variables, (3) underlying theoretical approaches, and (4) moderators influencing the M-P relationship. Through a detailed account of definitions and effects, the paper explores reasons for inconsistent results and lack of consensus within and across research streams as well as in relation to the identified shapes of the M-P relationship. The most striking result of the preliminary analysis is the lack of consistency. Therefore, the underlying assumption of a causal relationship between multinationality and performance remains questionable. The paper concludes with propositions that open up for future research.
