Abstract [en]

The overall purpose of this article is to examine the theoretical connections between Corporate Entrepreneurship-CE and International Performance-IP. More specifically, we address two main research questions: (1) How do different dimensions of CE influence IP and (2) To what extent the context of host country matters? Using a two-case study approach, we employ hybrid qualitative–quantitative analyses to address the effects of different dimensions of CE on IP. We adopted four statistical techniques: descriptive statistics, decision tree, cluster analysis, and principal components (factorial maps). The results show that country matters for the perception of the relationship between CE and IP. They show that it is meaningful to separate the different dimensions of CE (innovative behavior, new business ventures, competitive aggressiveness, product/service and process innovation, self-renewal, proactiveness, and risk taking) when examining their influence on IP. The paper focuses on three level of the organization: the production sector (staff), middle management (managers), and top management (CEO and directors). Such perspective allows to explore the role of first-level managers in a “bottom-up” process of corporate entrepreneurship. Furthermore, we distinguished between two levels of corporate entrepreneurship: results and entrepreneurial behavior.

Abstract [pt]

O objetivo geral deste artigo é examinar as conexões teóricas entre o Empreendedorismo Corporativo-CE e o Desempenho Internacional-IP. Mais especificamente, abordamos duas questões principais de pesquisa: (1) Como as diferentes dimensões do EC influenciam a PI? e (2) Em que medida o contexto do país-sede é importante? Utilizando uma abordagem de estudo de dois casos, empregamos análises qualitativas-quantitativas híbridas para abordar os efeitos de diferentes dimensões de EC em PI. Adotamos quatro técnicas estatísticas: estatística descritiva, árvore de decisão, análise de cluster e componentes principais (mapas fatoriais). Os resultados mostram que o país é importante para a percepção da relação entre CE e PI. Eles mostram que é significativo separar as diferentes dimensões do CE (comportamento inovador, novos empreendimentos comerciais, agressividade competitiva, inovação de produto / serviço e processo, autorenovação, proatividade e tomada de risco) ao examinar sua influência na PI. O artigo se concentra em três níveis da organização: o setor de produção (pessoal), a gerência intermediária (gerentes) e a alta administração (CEO e diretores). Essa perspectiva permite explorar o papel dos gerentes de primeiro nível em um processo “de baixo para cima” de empreendedorismo corporativo. Além disso, distinguimos entre dois níveis de empreendedorismo corporativo: resultados e comportamento empreendedor.
