IB&IM SIG News- Newsletter of November 2018

5th November 2018

Dear BAM IB&IM SIG members,

Following up the BAM 2018 annual conference in Bristol, we asked the winners of the full paper and developmental paper awards to provide a summary of the most important milestones of their award winning papers. We would like to thank the authors for their contribution and we hope that you will find it interesting:

Maria-Cristina Stoian, Pavlos Dimitratos and Emmanuella Plakoyiannaki won the "McDonald-Clegg" award for the best competitive paper submitted to the IB/IM SIG, for their paper entitled "International SME Co-Creation, Knowledge Enhancement and New Product Development: How do they matter for Performance?"

This study investigates the influence of value co-creation with international strategic networks on international performance of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). It accounts for the mediating role of knowledge enhancement and new product development and examines the moderating role of e-business adoption. A dataset of UK-based SMEs serves to test the hypotheses. The findings show that value co-creation with international strategic networks drives knowledge enhancement leading to high quality and profitable new product development, and ultimately increases international performance. Differences are found between bricks-and-mortar and e-business adopters. This study contributes to the under-researched area of international value co-creation at the interorganizational level in the SME context.

Hongyi Yang and Maria-Cristina Stoian, won the award for the best developmental paper submitted to the IB/IM SIG, for their paper entitled "The emergence of Web 3.0 and entrepreneurial SMEs in China: exploring the role of Internet-enabled capabilities in firms' international behavior".

This study explores the internationalisation of Chinese small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The empirical analysis draws on interview data with senior managers in Chinese-based internationalised SMEs. Initial findings show the key role of Internet-enabled technologies in facilitating Chinese SME internationalisation by helping to develop and strengthen emerging international networks. Internet-enabled technologies, unlike previous communication instruments, have created new business actors in the form of Web platforms that enhance the level of connectivity between Chinese SMEs and their international partners.

We wish you an enjoyable and fruitful November!
