The forgotten middle: Cognitive firm capabilities and the multinationality performance relationship

Item Type Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Abstract

This conceptual paper, which offers an examination of the role of strategic schemas in the multinationality performance relationship, adds to the literature in three important ways. First, by drawing on internalization theory and the dynamic capabilities view we open the black-box of the firm and incorporate the cognition research approach of strategic schemas and its mediating role for the multinationality performance relationship. Second, by conceptualizing multinationality as multinational complexity, we expand the multidimensional perception of multinationality and contribute to a more fine-grained understanding of the levels of multinationality that firms face. Third, we combine the internal-capabilities view with environmental multinational complexity by developing a strategic schema fit model for the relationship between multinational complexity and firm performance. Therefore, this paper offers an approach to resolve the inconclusive findings of the multinational performance (M/P) literature.
