    Organizational innovation, technological innovation, and export performance: The effects of innovation radicalness and extensiveness2017In: International Business Review, ISSN 0969-5931, E-ISSN 1873-6149, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 324-336Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the relevance of different types of innovation for firms' export performance. Despite ample research on the innovation performance relationship, previous studies have mainly focused on technological innovations, leaving the effects of organizational innovations relatively unexplored. Hypotheses on the relationship between organizational and technological innovations and firm export performance are tested by structural equation modelling using data from 218 Swedish export ventures. The results indicate that organizational innovation enhances export performance both directly and indirectly by sustaining technological innovation. Moreover, by fine-graining our analysis of the mediating role of technological innovation, according to its radicalness and extensiveness, for organizational innovation, we show how the latter enhances both the radicalness and extensiveness of technological innovation although, notably, only extensiveness is actually beneficial for export performance. This study helps alleviate the scarcity of research examining the links among different types of innovation in relation to export performance and contributes to international business and marketing literature by generating new evidence regarding the mechanisms through which organizational and technological innovations may improve export performance.

    Exploring the obstacles to implementing economic mechanisms to stimulate antibiotic research and development: a mulit-actor and system-level analysis2016In: American Journal of Law & Medicine, ISSN 0098-8588, Vol. 42, p. 451-486Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This Article examines the potential stakeholder-related obstacles hindering the implementation of mechanisms to re-ignite the development of novel antibiotics. Proposed economic models and incentives to drive such development include: Public Funding of Research and Development (R&D), Tax Incentives, Milestone Prizes, End Payments, Intellectual Property (IP) and Exclusivity Extensions, Pricing and Reimbursement Incentives, Product Development Partnerships (PDPs), and the Options Market for Antibiotics model. Drawing on personal experience and understanding of the antibiotic field, as well as stakeholder consultation and numerous expert meetings within the DRIVE-AB project and Uppsala Health Summit 2015, the Authors identify obstacles attributable to the following actors: Universities and Research Institutes, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), Large Pharmaceutical Companies, Marketing Approval Regulators, Payors, Healthcare Providers, National Healthcare Authorities, Patients, and Supranational Institutions. The analysis also proposes a characterization and ranking of the difficulty associated with implementing the reviewed mechanisms. Public Funding of R&D, Pricing and Reimbursement Incentives, and PDPs are mechanisms expected to meet highly systemic barriers (i.e., obstacles across the entire antibiotic value chain), imposing greater implementation challenges in that they require convincing and involving several motivationally diverse actors in order to have much effect.

    A network perspective on the reshoring process: The relevance of the home- and the host-country contexts2017In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 70, p. 156-166, article id http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.indmarman.2017.08.016Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While research on reshoring generally focuses on the host-country to explain why a company brings its previously offshored activities back home, this paper stresses the relevance also of the home-country context. Specifically, relying on the IMP (Industrial Marketing & Purchasing) perspective we show how offshoring and reshoring processes and decisions are both enabled and constrained by the micro-interactions and interdependencies in the industrial networks stretching over the home-country and the host-country. This work relies on a longitudinal case study about an Italian manufacturing firm to develop a model indicating how offshoring/reshoring is a long-term process which unfolds depending both on the focal firm's strategy and on its interplay with the embedding network. Next to this interactive process perspective, we contribute to the literature on reshoring and the global factory also the concept of “selective reshoring”, whereby companies bring back a very specific sub-set of activities, which were previously fine-sliced and offshored, and re-embed these activities in their local home context. The more flexible and selective nature of this relocation of activities between different supply markets depends both on the firm's strategy and on the structure, overlap and evolution of the network elements located in the home- and host-country contexts.

    What do we know about manufacturing reshoring?2018In: JOURNAL OF GLOBAL OPERATIONS AND STRATEGIC SOURCING, ISSN 2398-5364, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 79-122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The aim of this paper is to analyze and classify research that has been conducted on manufacturing reshoring, i.e. the decision to bring back to the home country production activities earlier offshored, independently of the governance mode (insourcing vs outsourcing). Consequently, the paper also aims at providing avenues for future research and to highlight the distinct value of studying manufacturing reshoring either per se or in combination with other constructs of the international business tradition.

    Design/methodology/approach: A set of 57 carefully selected articles on manufacturing reshoring published in international journals or books indexed on Scopus in the past 10 years was systematically analyzed based on the “5Ws and 1H” (who-what-where-when-why and how) set of questions.

    Findings: The authors’ work shows a certain convergence among authors regarding what reshoring is and what its key features and motivations are. In contrast, other related aspects, such as the decision-making and implementation processes, are comparatively less understood.

    Research limitations/implications: As manufacturing reshoring is a “recent” topic, for some of its aspects, only exploratory research is available to date, limiting the authors’ possibility to either characterize it in a more exhaustive way or highlight well-established patterns.

    Practical implications: The paper demonstrates that studying reshoring will indeed contribute to expanding our understanding of internationalization processes and strategies in general and of production internationalization specifically. While past studies have argued that the learning derived from international experience would permit firms to overcome their unfamiliarity with new business environments, reshoring might show that this outcome is not necessarily certain. Rather, firms might not be able to overcome obstacles because of internationalization or they might realize that attempting to do so is not desirable, e.g. because of excessive risk or changes in the firm’s strategic priorities.

    Social implications: From a societal point of view, the present research underlines that reshoring can be part of that re-industrialization policy that many Western countries include in their economic agenda – yet, its impact on employment should not be overestimated, as often relocation is only in regard to some product lines. At the same time, there might be an intimate relationship between reshoring and the various forms of technological innovations applied to manufacturing – which has become popularly labeled as “Industry 4.0”.

    Originality/value: Literature reviews proposed until now usually paid almost exclusive attention to motivations driving this phenomenon. This paper offers a broader and more comprehensive examination of the extant knowledge of manufacturing reshoring and identifies the main unresolved issues and knowledge gaps, which future research should investigate.

    On the Innovative MNC: Leveraging Innovations and the Role of IT systems2004Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with the phenomena of development and transfer of innovations within multinational corporations (MNCs), and in particular, with the role of information technology (IT) systems in innovation.

    The empirical base of the thesis is both qualitative and quantitative. The case studies explore the phenomena of innovation development and transfer, delving more deeply into the use and role of IT systems in the innovation process in MNCs. The quantitative dataset spans a range of industries and captures key aspects, characteristics, and dynamics of the processes of innovation development and transfer at the unit level. Several empirical findings are presented in the five constituent papers. First, concerning innovation development, evidence is provided as to how both internal and external subsidiary’s network relationships are critical for innovation. Moreover, it is demonstrated how external versus internal relationships affect specific dimensions of innovativeness. In other words, internal relationships nurture the importance of the innovation, while external relationships enhance its radicality.

    Second, the study of a series of innovation transfer projects indicates that innovation characteristics (i.e. innovation complexity, tacitness, specificity) and integrative mechanisms (i.e. HQ involvement, lateral transfer routines, project groups, IT systems) should be considered together when pursuing innovation transfer. Additionally, using various integrative mechanisms incurs trade-offs between the transfer cost, speed, and level of implementation. In particular, it is found that the use of non-hierarchical structures and rich communication media is preferable, and that direct HQ involvement in transfer projects is detrimental for transfer performance.

    Third, specific research efforts devoted to investigating the role of IT systems in both innovation development and transfer phases, cast light on the potential role of IT systems for innovation in MNCs. Evidence demonstrates, first of all, how a specific IT system’s role in innovation development may vary depending on the innovation object, innovation phase, and context. Thus the interdependencies between innovation phase and coordination of IT tools are found to be key issues in managing the overall process. As for innovation transfer, the role of IT systems and their contribution to the process shifts from those of an efficient “transfer” mechanism to those of a “trigger” for knowledge development—an effect of the kind of relation existing between the units involved and the motives driving the system use.

    Finally, based on theoretical analysis of the innovation development and transfer process from a business network perspective, specific insights are presented as to the nature and limits of the innovative MNC. The study, which focuses particularly on the impact that innovation development has on the possibilities for inter-unit innovation transfer, leads to the conclusion that knowledge transfer and problem solving are not always either possible or desirable. Furthermore, the relevance of the “local place” for innovation and the “local-to-local” nature of innovation transfer are still so important in today’s global economy as to bring the modern view of the MNC as a transnational organization/differentiated network into question, and to point towards a representation of the MNC as a federation of relatively loosely-coupled entities.

    Abstract [en]

    This is a conceptual effort to develop the network perspective in use within the IMP research tradition by integrating findings from International Business (IB) research. An analytical framework to study business network in an international context is developed by considering the implications of the organizational and geographical dimensions of networks. This framework and analytical approach offer broader means of analysis and it also helps tackling network effects and dynamics related to cross-country activities of multinational firms. In relation to the framework a series of propositions and issues for future research are also presented.

    Abstract [en]

    The headquarters of multinational corporations face myriad challenges stemming from their internal and external environments, which influence their ability to manage global organizations. This paper highlights the issue of environmental complexity and the knowledge situation of headquarters in relation to different headquarters levels in the organization, in connection to its value-adding or value-destroying potential in the multinational corporation. The paper also discusses the implications of the existence of multiple headquarters operating within one multinational corporation. The paper presents some considerations for future research and for practitioners and summarizes the contributions that make up this special issue on the role and functions of headquarters in multinational corporations.

    Exploring the Effects of Vertical and Lateral Mechanisms in International Knowledge Transfer Projects2011In: Management International Review, ISSN 0025-181X, Vol. 51, no 2, p. 129-155Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowledge is critical for creating and sustaining competitive advantage and in today's fast-moving international market firms need to leverage knowledge globally. Therefore, one important question becomes what effect different transfer mechanisms have on transfer success.

    This study investigates 169 international knowledge transfer projects in multinational corporations focusing on the role of hierarchy, heterarchy and IT in terms of effects on knowledge transfer success, that is, efficiency and effectiveness of the transfer project.

    We find that the effects of the different integrative and coordinative structures on knowledge transfer success are contradictory. Centralization through headquarters involvement is negatively related to knowledge transfer success in both its dimensions, while previous cooperation between subsidiaries has positive effects on transfer effectiveness, but not on efficiency. The use of IT nurtures knowledge transfer success in both dimensions.

    This study adds to the knowledge about the effects of vertical and lateral mechanisms on the success of knowledge transfer projects.

    Subsidiary Transfer Competence and Rent-Seeking Behavior2010In: Proceedings of the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Academy of International Business, "International Business in Tough Times", Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 25-29, 2010 / [ed] Tatiana Kostova, Tunga Kiyak, Rio de Janiero: Academy of International Business , 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we argue that subsidiary technology transfer competence is a determinant of subsidiary bargaining power, and that subsidiaries can exploit such power to pursue their own ends. We suggest that this kind of behaviour, rent-seeking, can manifest itself in intra-firm relationships. An empirical analysis, using Three Stage Least Squares, is performed comprising intra-firm technology transfers among MNC subsidiaries providing general support for the predictions. Consequently, this paper advances the understanding of subsidiary sources of power within the MNC and organizational determinants of rent-seeking.

    The good, the bad, and the ugly: technology transfer competence, rent-seeking, and bargaining power2012In: Journal of world business (Print), ISSN 1090-9516, E-ISSN 1878-5573, Vol. 47, no 4, p. 664-674Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we explore the relationships between subsidiary technology transfer competence, bargaining power and rent-seeking. In the multinational corporation, technology transfer competence is generally perceived as something desirable. We connect this bright side of subsidiary-level processes to a potentially uglier and darker side of the organization, namely that subsidiaries gain bargaining power that is exercised for bad ends, i.e., rent-seeking. Using an empirical analysis that comprises intrafirm technology transfers, this paper finds that technology transfer competence leads to greater subsidiary bargaining power that in turn increases rent-seeking behavior; but this competence does not directly affect rent-seeking. We suggest that bargaining power offers a key explanation for rent-seeking. This paper advances the understanding of subsidiary sources of power within the multinational corporation and the organizational determinants of rent-seeking, which is relevant to theory development as well as to managers.

    Innovation project embeddedness as a driver of innovation novelty and business performance2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores innovation development in subsidiaries of the multinational corporation and offers a finegrained analysis of innovations in networks. We develop a conceptual model linking innovation project embeddedness to the degree of innovation in terms of novelty and innovation related business performance at the subsidiary level. We confront our conceptual model with a data set comprising 85 innovation development projects using partial least squares regression. Our findings reinforce the notion that innovations with a high degree of novelty, which have been found to reflect the competitive advantage of firms, increase business performance at the subsidiary level. However, we find no direct link between project level embeddedness and related business performance. Instead, such embeddedness, taking both internal and external relationships into account, enhances the novelty of innovations. Thus, embeddedness contributes to performance outcomes indirectly. Our study thus creates a link between the project level, innovation and firm level outcomes and contributes to the network and innovation literature.

    Evolutionary theory and the advantage paradox of multinational corporations: testing the effects of subsidiary embeddedness and autonomy on innovation development and transfer intensities2011In: Academy of Management Annual Meeting Proceedings, 2011 / [ed] Leslie Toombs, 2011, p. 1-6Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on innovation development and transfer in multinational corporations. We use the evolutionary theory of the multinational company as our point of departure and confront it with the advantage paradox of such organizations. Evolutionary theory on the multinational corporation argues that the more innovations are developed, the more the subsidiary is transferring them internally within the organization. However, there are studies indicating that, due to the multiplicity of roles, a subsidiary increasingly engaged in development activities has difficulties engaging in transfer activities. This suggest that there is an advantage paradox connected to the evolutionary theory of the multinational corporation in that being competent at developing innovations does not necessarily lead to the fact that such innovations become transferred. In the paper we explore the effects of external embeddedness and subsidiary autonomy on subsidiary innovation development, and these three dimensions are subsequently linked to subsidiary innovation transfer intensity. Our analysis suggests that embeddedness and autonomy is enhancing subsidiary innovativeness but does not contribute to transfer intensity. However, we can confirm that the more a subsidiary is innovating, although being embedded and autonomous, the more it will engage in innovation transfer to sister subsidiaries. Consequently, this paper addresses core dimensions of evolutionary theory, finding support for its arguments, while we cannot find support for the advantage paradox of multinational corporations.

    Internal Embeddedness, Headquarters Involvement, and Innovation Importance in Multinational Enterprises2011In: Journal of Management Studies, ISSN 0022-2380, E-ISSN 1467-6486, Vol. 48, no 7, p. 1612-1639Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we apply a business network perspective to investigate the effects of internal embeddedness and headquarters involvement on subsidiaries’ innovation-related competencies, and on the perceived importance of innovation in multinational enterprises. A model framed in the innovation context is developed and six hypotheses are tested on 85 innovation projects in 23 multinational enterprises using partial least squares based structural equation modelling. The results suggest that, contrary to predictions of the business network perspective, headquarters involvement in the innovation development process improves subsidiary competencies while internal embeddedness does not. Headquarters involvement, driven by subsidiary internal embeddedness, enhances the innovation impact on the subsidiary, which in turn influences innovation importance at corporate level. Thus, the business network perspective is challenged but at the same time expanded in terms of highlighting the role of, and interplay between, different internal corporate actors, particularly the role of headquarters, in developing competencies and creating competitive advantage.

    Value Generation in the Multinational Corporation2015In: The Future of Global Organizing: Progress in International Business Research / [ed] Rob Van Tulder, Alain Verbeke, Rian Drogendijk, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2015, p. 39-56Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    As markets become increasingly competitive, it is important for multinational corporations to generate value. Both headquarters and subsidiaries are responsible for contributing to value generation, albeit they may do so in different ways. This builds on the notion from the literature that it is possible to discern two separate concepts that relate to the generation of value, namely, value creation and value added. These concepts are often used interchangeably, without a clear distinction what they de facto reflect or what the underlying mechanisms of value creation and value added are.

    Methodology/approach

    Based on a set of assumptions regarding headquarters–subsidiary relations conceptual arguments related to value generation are developed.

    Research implications

    Teasing out the differences between the concepts becomes important as it leads to a fuller understanding of what a headquarters do in different situations and of what a headquarters–subsidiary relationship entails for value generation.

    Originality/value

    In this chapter, it is argued that value-adding activities tend to be conducted by a headquarters, but are dependent on varying knowledge situations of headquarters, while the value creation process tends to take place at the subsidiary level.

    Headquarters involvement and efficiency of innovation development and transfer in multinationals: A matter of sheer ignorance?2012In: International Business Review, ISSN 0969-5931, E-ISSN 1873-6149, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 130-144Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We compare two theoretical perspectives on the knowledge situation of headquarters (HQ) in multinational corporations: the bounded rationality perspective and the sheer ignorance perspective. We claim that these perspectives lead to different expectations when it comes to HQ's role and the effects of HQ involvement in innovation processes at the subsidiary level. More specifically, we examine the impact of HQ involvement on the efficiency of 71 subsidiary innovation projects. The findings show that HQ involvement in innovation development and transfer has a negative rather than a positive impact on efficiency in both processes. We contribute by showing and suggesting that the sheer ignorance perspective might provide a more accurate portrayal of the HQ knowledge situation than the bounded rationality perspective does. This study furthers understanding of the role of HQ in the contemporary, knowledge-creating multinational.

    Rationality vs ignorance: The role of MNE headquarters in subsidiaries' innovation processes2011In: Journal of International Business Studies, ISSN 0047-2506, E-ISSN 1478-6990, Vol. 42, no 7, p. 958-970Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Innovation processes in multinational enterprises (MNE) are largely context specific, and carried out at the subsidiary level. Therefore, corporate headquarters (HQ) involvement in these processes becomes a major issue. A typical assumption in international business (IB) theory is that HQ based on its own knowledge, makes rational choices about its own involvement. However, according to some studies, HQ involvement can be assumed to be less rational, in the sense that it reflects not HQ knowledge but the normative expectations associated with the role of HQ as top manager. The purpose of this paper is to contrast these two perspectives by exploring their implications regarding the relationship between HQ knowledge about and HQ involvement in innovation processes at the subsidiary level, and regarding the impact of this potential involvement on innovation processes performance. The analysis results in six propositions and an illustrative case. Our contribution to IB research is primarily theoretical: we bring to the scene an alternative approach the sheer ignorance perspective with the potential to explain the behavior of key actors in the MNE. We argue, however, that the theoretical conflict between the two perspectives should be addressed by empirical research. We conclude with suggestions for the directions such research might take.

    Value Creation at the Subsidiary Level: Testing the MNC Headquarters Parenting Advantage Logic2017In: Long range planning, ISSN 0024-6301, E-ISSN 1873-1872, Vol. 50, no 1, p. 48-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to test the assumptions of the headquarters parenting advantage in multinational firms within the context of subsidiary innovation processes. Specifically, we explore the relationship between the selective involvement of headquarters in both innovation development and transfer processes and their related performance in a data set of 85 innovation projects analysed with structural equation modelling. The findings provide only limited support to the parenting advantage logic as they show that although the headquarters are able to select subsidiary-level strategic innovation processes, their involvement is hampering the performance of these processes. Consequently, we offer new extensions to the reasoning behind the parenting advantage logic by introducing four complementary theoretical explanations for the potentially harmful effects of headquarters' involvement in subsidiary innovation-related activities.
