Perspectives on entrepreneurial networking in the online context

A growing conversation is emerging within management research that considers the importance, impact, and implications of the digital context for business. This is particularly the case for the study of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial behaviour, including networking. Networks are a strategically important entrepreneurial resource and networking is a key contributor to venture success. During this session, I intend to weave together three separate studies that offer unique but complementary perspectives on the online networking actions of entrepreneurs. Taken together, these studies shed light on founders’ digital networks, advance network, social capital, and social identity theories, and offer important new directions for studying networks in the digital age.

Meet the Editor| The Development of Shared Fairness Perceptions of Culturally Diverse Employees: The Case of Chinese Subordinates and German Supervisors

Enriching organizational justice literature with insights from cultural identity negotiation theory, our explorative, qualitative study develops an evidence-based model illuminating how culturally diverse subordinates and supervisors can achieve through their cross-cultural interactions shared understandings of fairness. Our analysis is based on a complex research design comprising in total 91 interviews in China and in Germany from Chinese subordinates of German supervisors, German subordinates of Chinese supervisors, Chinese supervisors of German subordinates and from German supervisors of Chinese subordinates. Findings reveal that both subordinates and supervisors undergo interrelated cultural negotiation processes which lead to an approximation of previously more distinct fairness perceptions and ultimately to a partially shared understanding of fairness.

The Brazilian State and Industrial Elites in the Field of Fostering Innovation

The paper aims to analyze the relationship between the Brazilian State and industrial elites in the construction of the field of fostering innovation from 1999 to 2017. We define fostering innovation as a social field (Fligstein & McAdam, 2012) with relations permeated by shared understandings, varied interests and contending discourses. Our analysis focuses on the way the Brazilian State and the national industrial elites interact to promote innovation. We develop a historically informed research of the recent efforts to foster innovation in Brazil.

Meet the Editor| Shareholder Activism and Firm's Voluntary Disclosure of Their Exposure to Climate Change Risks

This paper examines whether—in absence of mandated disclosure requirements—shareholder activism can elicit greater disclosure of firms’ exposure to climate change risks. We find that environmental shareholder activism increases the voluntary disclosure of climate change risks. Moreover, environmental shareholder activism is particularly effective if it is initiated by institutional investors (i.e., investors who have more “power”), and even more so if it is initiated by long-term institutional investors (i.e., investors whose request has more “legitimacy”). Finally, we find that companies that voluntarily disclose climate change risks following environmental shareholder activism achieve a higher valuation, suggesting that investors value companies’ transparency with respect to climate change risks.

Meet the Editor| The Impact of Two Managerial Responses to Hospital Boarding Crises

In 2002, Massachusetts policy makers mandated that hospitals develop a urgent response to boarding crises. More specifically, when a hospital experiences long boarding times for many admitted emergency department (ED) patients, hospital managers must activate their staff to get all boarding patients placed in inpatient beds within 30 minutes (Burke et al. 2013, Michael et al. 2018). We term this the urgent response because it solves the problem in the short term, but does not take steps to improve performance in the future. In contrast, a prevention response would try to prevent boarding crises from occuring in the first place. Management theorists suggest that a prevention response will be more effective than the urgent response, but that in the short term, investing in the prevention response will be challenging because it takes time away from current performance (Repenning and Sterman 2001, Bohn 2000). To empirically test this theory, we study a large academic hospital in Massachusetts that has both types of responses.

Residual risks and default waterfalls in central counterparties

I develop a methodology to assess residual risk exposures in derivatives central counterparties (CCPs) relative to the coverage suggested in the CPSS-IOSCO Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures. These risk exposures can be used to evaluate the systemic risk contributions of CCPs and the effectiveness of regulations mandating central clearing. The proposed technique decomposes residual risk exposures into a quantity-based component, driven by individual trading decisions that lead to crowded trades, and more traditional price-based components, determined by the volatility and comovement of asset returns. Empirical results based on data from the Canadian Derivatives Clearing Corporation (CDCC) show that aggregate residual risk exposures reached record levels during the financial crisis, when price-based components were at their highest levels. However, the quantity-based component peaked six months prior to the crisis; thus, suggesting that trade crowdedness could serve as a leading indicator of the financial cycle and should be considered when designing risk management policies.

Being in Love and at War with My Team: Individual Team Ambivalence

In spite of the recent interest in affect as it influences teams and organizations, ambivalence as an affect-related team concept has been rarely studied. The seemingly incompatible coexistence of positive and negative feelings bears negative consequences to individuals, due to its uncertain and conflicting nature. Taking this to the team context, I introduce individual team ambivalence, which I define as a psychological state of tension and conflict in which strong positive and negative feelings toward a team exist in the same individual at the same time. In order to shed light on the origins and consequences of team members’ ambivalence about the team as a whole, I have developed a conceptual model of individual team ambivalence. The results of a study with 22 teams in a construction company show that individuals’ perceptions of team psychological safety foster individual team ambivalence through two different configurations of individuals’ positive and negative ties with other team members: within-tie and between-tie incongruence. In addition, my data indicates that individual team ambivalence negatively affects team members’ individual performance through the mediation of team commitment.

Multiple Bookrunners, Bargaining Power, and the Pricing of IPOs

We examine the increased frequency of multiple bookrunners for U.S. initial public offerings (IPOs) over 2002 to 2014 and study the impact on IPO outcomes. Much of the increase in multiple bookrunners is due to the inclusion of “passive” non-lead bookrunners who underwrite fewer shares than “active” lead bookrunners. We hypothesize this structure is the outcome of bargaining between the issuer and the lead-left bookrunner who hold different preferences over IPO outcomes. We find evidence that issuers push for multiple bookrunners to increase information production and lower the cost of going public, whereas lead-left bookrunners push for greater control and compensation. When bargaining power is balanced, the issuer and lead-left bookrunner reach trade-offs, adding non-lead bookrunners and increasing analyst following post-IPO, which benefits the issuer, but pricing the IPO to generate higher first-day returns, which benefits the lead-left bookrunner.

Research Development Workshop: An Introduction to Research with Indigenous Communities

This workshop is the first of two workshops planned on research with Indigenous communities. It will assume no prior knowledge of research with Indigenous communities or the broader theme of decolonization. Workshop content will address the following areas:

  • Context and history of research with First Nations communities
  • Indigenous rights as they pertain to research
  • Ethical protocols for research with Indigenous communities (e.g. guidelines used by UVic’s Human Research Ethics Board and SSHRC)
  • Research relationships / responsive research
  • Matching methods with types of research with Indigenous communities
  • Community protocols and principles
  • Community notions of time & (mis)alignment with University time frames

Meet the Editor| A recipe for success? Critical acclaim and the one-hit-wonder effect—evidence from the UK cookbook market

This study examines the factors that determine the success of a novel idea in the marketplace for ideas. In addition, we explore the question of whether the factors that determine initial idea success promote or constrain an individual’s ability to produce a follow-up idea. To answer these questions, we construct a dataset of first-time authors of cookbooks in the United Kingdom. Our analyses of 262 cookbooks written by first-time authors reveal that both the book’s novelty as well as the critical acclaim that is bestowed upon it determine its success. In addition, we find that the factors that drive initial success of an idea, in certain circumstances, can constrain an individual’s ability produce a follow-up idea. Specifically, among authors whose first cookbook received critical acclaim, having written a novel cookbook becomes a constraint. Our findings show that idea novelty is important to an idea’s success yet it may also serve to constrain the ability of the idea’s creator to produce ideas in the future. Our findings highlight the difficulties in sustaining creativity over time and offer some tentative insights as to how to address this issue.

The Joint Effects of Status and Power Distance Belief on Consumer Preference for Cuteness

Existing literature has often focused on the consequences of exposure to cute products, whereas little is known about the factors determining consumers’ preference for these products. The current research seeks to fill this gap by examining the interplay between social status and power distance belief (PDB). Building upon previous findings in the areas of cuteness, social status, and symbolic consumption, we argue that low (vs. high) status consumers should exhibit a stronger preference for cute (over non-cute) products, as they have a greater need for protection. Because this protection norm is more prominent among high PDB consumers than those with low PDB, we further propose that the effect of social status on a preference for cuteness will be more pronounced among high PDB consumers than low PDB consumers. Based on the process explanation of need for protection, we further identify psychological security and locus of control as two boundary conditions for the interaction effect of status and PDB. Findings from five studies provide convergent and robust support for the proposed framework. The theoretical implications of this study and future research directions are discussed.

Age-based legitimacy and rhetorical history in entrepreneurship

There is a growing awareness that the relationship between age and legitimacy is more complex than established theories of organization have acknowledged. A growing stream of literature has begun to explore this relationship between legitimacy and the passage of time by analyzing the ways in which managers “use the past” of an organization for strategic purposes. However, it is clear that not all successful managers or competitive organizations share this appreciation for history. Broadly-speaking, it appears that successful organizations in the twenty first century are required to carefully navigate a landscape of cultural influences in order to represent the age and history of their organizations in line with a number of strategic considerations. The core argument of this essay is that the temporal metaphor of firm age is based on two competing cultural systems associated with ‘classical’ and ‘romantic’ notions of age which advance opposing explanations of what constitutes legitimacy in the context of entrepreneurship and organizing.

Diversity and inclusion in international organizations:  Because we want to, we have to, or we ought to?

The field of international business (IB) has failed to keep pace with the shift towards diversity and inclusion (D&I) of underrepresented groups, due to both the primacy of cultural diversity over others, and the dominance of North American perspectives on D&I. We engaged in a text analysis of all 2334 articles retrieved by Business Source Complete related to diversity and inclusion, to examine how D&I has been represented over time in IB compared to the rest of business literature. We uncovered two overriding issues and propose cross-disciplinary resolutions: First, the recommendations made for practice of D&I presume a more direct and strong relationship from diversity to performance than is supported by research. To resolve this issue, D&I research may be able to draw on the IB treatment of cross-cultural management, which tends to take a measured and moderated approach to the cultural diversity-performance link. Second, the morality argument is missing from much of the literature, and this unnecessarily limits the range of outcomes considered. To resolve this issue, we think that IB can learn lessons from fields such as public policy and law, where moral arguments play a larger role and thus expand the pool of research questions. We build our recommendations into a model for conducting research on D&I within IB.

Brands Taking a Stand: Authentic Brand Activism or Woke Washing?

Historically brands have not engaged in social and political conversations for fear of potentially alienating customers. However, in today’s post-modern culture, corporate neutrality has been subject to criticism. Remaining ambivalent on contentious issues is now more of a failing than a virtue, especially in the eyes of certain consumer groups (Beverland 2009).  As brands engage in more corporate social activism, however, motives underpinning this activity are increasingly scrutinized (Holt 2002). Particularly, we are concerned with brands that are perceived to be inauthentic in their “wokeness”. “Woke,” added to the Oxford Dictionary in 2017, is defined as being well-informed and alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice. Consumers may react negatively because they question the authenticity of a corporate social initiative and the brand’s follow-through to concretely improve related social issues. We argue that whether affiliation with a political or social cause has a positive effect on brand equity crucially depends on the authenticity of this gesture. Brand equity for social activism marketing thus hinges on whether the brand engages in practices that match its message. The contribution of this research thus is twofold. First, the authors martial the disperse literature around the marketing dimensions of CSR and corporate socio-political advocacy to inform the concept of brand activism. Second, this paper draws on illustrative cases to produce a typology of brand activism. In particular, we investigate issues of authenticity (Wettstein and Baur, 2016) raised by brand activism efforts when contrasted with brand practices. The resulting typology reveals when brands are more likely to be perceived as “woke washing” or inauthentic in their marketing, as their practices may not clearly align with their messaging.
