  • How can research on culture in International Business be made more interesting?   Order a copy of this article
    by Snejina Michailova, Nigel Holden 
    Abstract: This paper looks at a particular feature of International Business (IB) research on culture that seems to be, on reflection, a curious omission from existing reviews and analyses its potential for interestingness. A significant amount of the research on culture by IB scholars can be largely summarized as value-based, nation-oriented, and survey-driven. We contend that these approaches inhibit the development of interesting research. To tackle this issue, we ponder two interconnected issues that sociologists and management scholars have wrestled with for quite some time: namely, what exactly is interesting research and why does it matter? Our commentary on this questions and subsequent brief outline serve as a platform for our key discussion on how IB research on culture can be more interesting. We promote the value of the notion of contextualization, highlight the need for more research into language and advance the case for research into intracultural variation. Each of these three topics gives the possibility for conducting research with new methodologies, some of which involve a break with national value systems, on the one hand, and the embrace of non-cultural variables, on the other. The current shifts and changes in the world open up new vistas of truly interesting research, at which IB scholars can and indeed should be at the forefront.
    Keywords: IB research; culture; interesting research; contextualization; language; intra-cultural variation.

  • Cultural values and leadership styles as determinants of the innovative strength of nations. Part 2: Quantitative research and analyses   Order a copy of this article
    by Piet Moonen 
    Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to establish the impact of cultural values and leadership style on the innovative strength of nations in Europe. On the base of a quantitative web survey research possible relations between cultural values, leadership style characteristics and the innovative strength have been examined. Based on the results of this research we may conclude that there is a correlation between several cultural characteristics and leadership style characteristics of countries in question and their innovative strength. The results of this study provide us with the insight that the innovative strength of a nation or organization can be altered by changing (parts of) its culture and management style. By critically evaluating the qualitative cultural frameworks of several well-known scholars (Part 1) and relating then to quantitative statistical data about the innovative strength of nations (Part 2) , this study has combined the strengths of both qualitative and quantitative methodologies.
    Keywords: Innovation; Culture; Cultural values; Leadership styles; Organizational cultures and structures; Performance in Innovation.
