1. Kim, Sahangsoon. Short-term project organizations for corporate entrepreneurship: evidence from the Japanese animation industry (2000–2008).

Degree: PhD, Business Administration, 2010, University of Southern California

Corporate entrepreneurship has been and will continue to be the most important means of ensuring firm survival and prosperity. To cope with a dynamically competitive environment and overcome various limitations, firms form collaborative entrepreneurships. Evidence from the practice shows that short-term collaboration among firms has become valuable for corporate entrepreneurship projects. My dissertation is a study of short-term project organizations for corporate entrepreneurship. Specifically, I examined two important and interconnected issues concerning short-term project organizations — formation and acquisition of new capabilities.; Due to its complex nature, corporate entrepreneurship sits in the crosshairs of numerous theoretical lenses. I examined literature about corporate entrepreneurship, short-term organizations, and mobility. Using behavioral theory of the firm and organizational learning as guiding theoretical perspectives, I viewed corporate entrepreneurship as a series of problem-solving activities. Specifically, the nature of corporate entrepreneurship demanded non-local search activity beyond firm boundaries. With this understanding, I investigated the novelty of entrepreneurship projects and internal and external resource conditions as factors responsible for the formation of short-term project organizations. Then, I examined whether corporate entrepreneurship could contribute to the acquisition of new capabilities. I theorized that the mobility of external experts in and out of corporate entrepreneurship projects, firms’ own experience in entrepreneurship, and previous experience in capability acquisition could predict firms’ chances of acquiring new capabilities. I systematically examined these claims by testing hypotheses with a sample of 645 Japanese TV animation programs produced by 83 unique animation studios and 288 directors between 2000 and 2008.; Results strongly supported theories of the formation of short-term project organizations by providing evidence that the Novelty of Project, External Resource Availability, and Internal Resource Constraints increased the likelihood of a corporate entrepreneurship project being carried out by short-term project organizations. The results also provided supporting evidence that mobility of external experts and previous experience in capability acquisition enhanced firms’ chances to learn new capabilities.; My dissertation contributes to corporate entrepreneurship literature by examining the conditions that lead to the formation of short-term collaborative entrepreneurship activities. It contributes to organizational learning theory by providing evidence that short-term project organizations offer learning experiences to participating firms and people. It speaks to the growing audience of mobility studies by showing that different types of mobility have different values in corporate entrepreneurship. It also provides valuable insights to managers who seek sustainable competitiveness through corporate entrepreneurship by emphasizing the value of… Advisors/Committee Members: Kim, Jay (Ji-Yub)Rajagopalan, Nandini (Committee Chair), Kennedy, Mark T.

2. Wu, Zheying. Three essays on distance: examing the role of institutional distance on foreign firm entry, local isomorphism strategy and subsidiary performance.

Degree: PhD, Business Administration, 2009, University of Southern California

This dissertation consists of three essays on the impact of institutional distance on foreign firm entry, local isomorphism strategy and foreign subsidiary performance. These studies employ two samples: the first one includes the foreign banks that entered the United States from 61 home countries during 1956-2006. The second one includes all foreign bank subsidiaries (83 in Essay 2 and 84 in Essay 3) that operated in the United States from 1978 to 2006.; The first essay focuses on the impact of institutional distance on foreign firm entry. It examines the relationship between the cultural/economic/regulatory/political distances and the number of foreign entrants from a particular home country. Moreover, it tests whether vicarious experience moderates the impact of institutional distance. The results support the argument that fewer foreign firms enter the host country market as the institutional distance increases. In addition, the finding also suggests that the negative impact of institutional distance on foreign firm entry is likely to decrease as there are more prior entrants from the same home country.; The second essay examines foreign firms’ decision to imitate local domestic competitors, i.e. the local isomorphism strategy. In this essay, I argue that foreign firms are likely to imitate local domestic incumbents more as the institutional distance increases. Furthermore, this impact of institutional distance is likely to be moderated as foreign firms learn from others’ experience and their own experience. The empirical findings support the primary argument by showing that foreign banks imitate local U.S. banks to a greater extent as the cultural/economic/regulatory distance between the home country and the U.S. increases. Moreover, this impact of institutional distance persists over time.; The third essay tests the performance impact of local isomorphism strategy. Contrary to prior research, this study finds a positive association between local isomorphism and foreign subsidiary performance. In this empirical test, local isomorphism strategy is treated as a self-selected endogenous variable. The results support the hypothesis that local isomorphism strategy, as a function of individual firm characteristics and environmental conditions, has a positive impact on foreign subsidiary performance.
