Full-text available
Higher-performing employees are extremely important to organizations due to their superior contribution to unit performance and vaulted value within their teams. In turn, they espouse higher work-specific self-worth evaluations that influence how they react to abusive supervision. Taking a self-verification perspective, we theoretically explain how...

Purpose As the transition between exploration and exploitation is a unique challenge for SMEs, what mechanism(s) might facilitate this transition? Building on the entrepreneurship literature's entrepreneurial opportunity identification and development framework, this study hypothesizes that the novelty-centered business model (NCBM) may serve as su...

The purpose of this study is to examine how three dimensions of new venture managers’ mindsets—cosmopolitanism, cognitive complexity, risk propensity—affect their evaluations of opportunities to expand internationally for the first time. We also consider a contingency that likely shapes the effects of mindset dimensions: the institutional risk of t...

Full-text available
Using an experiment with corporate financial managers (e.g., CFOs, controllers), we find that when red flags are present in the financial statements under their review, managers identify those red flags and, in turn, have greater concerns over earnings quality. In addition, when pressure to meet a financial target is high, managers are more concern...
Article
The growing literature on supply chain disruptions has demonstrated how the detrimental consequences following their occurrence differ based on the scope of their severity. However, much less is known about the effects of disruptions due to the element of surprise experienced by firms. We draw on literature in operations management, systems enginee...
Article
Successful inter-organizational new product development (NPD) is a key source of competitive advantage, yet many NPD projects are still failing. To generate new insights on the phenomenon, we examine the performance implications of knowledge inputs among collaborating types of organizations, both in terms of external input ratio and input concentra...
Article
Meeting lateness—that is, meetings starting past the pre-scheduled time—can be viewed as a disruption to the temporal pacing of work. Previous research in the United States indicates that late meetings produce less optimal outcomes, but empirical insights concerning the extent to which experiences of meeting lateness are similar or different across...
Article
This study examines whether and how constructive voice (i.e., suggestions intended to promote positive changes at work) is contagious. Guided by social cognitive theory, we propose that witnessing a coworker’s voice increases an employee’s propensity to engage in voice via two parallel psychological mechanisms: voice self‐efficacy beliefs and voice...
Article
Purpose This paper aims to examine whether and how two firm-level factors jointly moderate the relation between corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities and firm performance: (1) the “alignment” between a firm's CSR activities and risk preferences and (2) performance measurement systems (PMS). Design/methodology/approach Using survey respo...

Article
Little empirical research has explored whether or not firm strategy is linked with corporate social responsibility (CSR) and to that end we explore the impact of low-cost and differentiation strategies on CSR. Using a sample of 229 Italian firms, a low-cost strategy is negatively associated with ethical and discretionary CSR, while a differentiatio...
Article
Contemporary trends in business have focused on enhancing the employee work experience. Proponents argue that doing so will improve employees’ productivity and ultimately the firm's performance. However, critics argue that job satisfaction has only a modest relationship with an employee's job performance, and therefore, such an investment will like...
Article
Full-text available
Organizations often communicate seemingly paradoxical strategic imperatives to their employees that reflect a focus on promotion (take risks) and prevention (be prudent), as outlined by regulatory focus theory. When consistently emphasized and reinforced in an organization, these strategic inclinations can emerge as divergent climates for promotion...
Article
Objectives The objectives of this study is to examine the effect of leader sleep devaluation (which we define as leader behaviors that signal to employees that sleep should be sacrificed for work) on the sleep and unethical behavior of subordinates. Design Across 2 studies (with 3 total samples of participants), we use a cross-sectional survey, a...

Purpose Considering that context is important and relying on a contingency perspective, the purpose of the study is to analyze the relationship between an entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and firm performance in one of the world's oldest economies: Italy. The contingency perspective relies on competitive strategy as a moderating variable. Design/m...
Article
Most existing safety research focuses on climate and leadership, with most leadership studies investigating transformational leadership, which is likely to be more impactful when exhibited by executives that by frontline supervisors. Therefore, focusing on frontline supervisors, we investigate how leaders who “walk the talk”, by directly modelling...

Article
Are business continuity programs (BCPs) useful in improving company performance? Risk management research suggests that BCPs are important in response and recovery from disruptions. However, critics suggest that BCPs rely too much on known risks and are overly complicated. This creates a decision dilemma regarding whether to invest in BCPs or not....
Article
Leader–member exchange (LMX) has long been considered a relationship‐based, dyadic model of leader–follower interactions. Recent reviews of this literature have, however, documented a paucity of research focusing on relationship‐based antecedents and dyadic‐level outcomes. In this study, we draw upon the relationship investment model to consider th...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to provide empirical evidence regarding the relationship between the level of comprehensiveness of a performance measurement system (PMS) and its respective organizational effectiveness. The extant literature has highlighted that a PMS may successfully contribute to the implementation of the organizational strat...
Chapter
For leadership, responding to supply chain disruptions can be paradoxical. Supply chain disruptions can rattle the stability and operational norms of a company and its stakeholders. Without an unwavering effort to contain the damage, such disruptions can easily propagate and become even more damaging. This assertion suggests that decisive leadershi...

Web-based surveys have become a common mode of data collection for researchers in many fields, but there are many methodological questions that need to be answered. This article examines one such question—do the use of sliders to express numerical amounts and the use of the more traditional radio button scales give the same, or different, measureme...
Article
Studies of innovative behavior (the generation, dissemination, and implementation of new ideas) have generally overlooked the agency perspective on this important type of performance behavior. Guided by social-cognitive theory, we propose a moderated mediation relationship to explain why and how employees become motivated to make things happen thro...
Article
Two important gaps remain to be filled in the idiosyncratic deals (i-deals) literature. First, it is unclear which employees are predisposed to seek and receive i-deals. Second, it is unclear how employees' perceptions of whether their coworkers are receiving i-deals affect their own i-deal experiences. This study proposed a theoretical model sugge...

Article
Despite the popularity of LMX models of leadership, this line of research has consistently been criticized for overlooking the dyadic level of analysis. In order to address these criticisms, we draw on seminal typologies of composition and compilation models to conceptualize dyadic LMX and dyadic dispersion LMX via two widely used LMX scales – the...

Performance Measurement Systems (PMS) are widely used, yet the evidence for their effect on productivity is still limited. We gather survey data describing the use of PMS by 246 manufacturing firms in Italy and match it with financial data for the study period 2003-2012. We develop a PMS score to aggregate the survey information and quantify how we...

We examine daily leader sleep as an antecedent to daily abusive supervisory behavior and work unit engagement. Drawing from ego depletion theory, our theoretical extension includes a serial mediation model of nightly sleep quantity and quality as predictors of abusive supervision. We argue that poor nightly sleep influences leaders to enact daily a...
Article
Performance measurement (PM) systems have been popularized over the last 20 years and the operations management literature is replete with discussion of metrics and measurement systems. Yet, a comprehensive nomological network relating types of PM system uses to organizational capabilities and performance is lacking. Furthermore, there is scant emp...
