Call for papers - Knowledge and Innovation across Cultures


Journal call for papers from Cross Cultural Management

Special issue guest edited by Yingying Zhang, J-C Spender and Claudio Petti

Knowledge and innovation emerge as the focus for organization and management studies within the globalized and technology speedy world of todayís business. Knowledge and innovation become especially globalized as technological changes reshape the ways managers carry out their work. Consequently many researchers consider business model, business process, and business strategy innovation the principal determinants of firm performance, and imply the firmís knowledge is its main means to gain and sustain competitive advantage.

Different angles and approaches have been taken by scholars until now to study and understand organizational knowledge and innovation. Ikujiro Nonakaís humanistic approach to knowledge management is one of them, shaping the way managers understand and practice organizational activities.

Beyond studying the impacts of technological advance on society at large, how knowledge and innovation management occurs in different business settings has been less studied or understood. For instance, is knowledge and innovation managed in the same way across different countries or different industries? Likewise we can query whether knowledge and innovation management are global phenomena or vary according to culture.

With such questions in mind, this Special Issue aims to bring together studies carried out from many different points of view to examine organizational knowledge and innovation, as well as the related fields of entrepreneurship and organizational learning. 
Suggested themes

The Special Issue calls for both theoretical and empirical work that addresses following questions or related ones, though the list is more suggestive than prescriptive:
1.Does national culture intervene in the process of knowledge and innovation management in organizations? What are its influences and how does it evolve?
2.Do multinationals manage knowledge and innovation similarly or differently in developed economies versus developing economies? How does that impact the different areas labeled entrepreneurship, organizational learning, and absorptive capability?
3.Can the specifics of organizational knowledge and innovation management processes and activities in different country and industry settings be surfaced and measured? For instance, do formal and informal institutional factors affect knowledge and innovation activities of an emerging economyís firms? Do technology-intensive firms or industries differ from consumer goods firms or industries in their knowledge management practices? Do technology parks or business clusters function in the same way across countries?  

How to submit

All submissions to this Special Issue will be put through Cross Cultural Managementís formal review process.

For information on format authors should consult Cross Cultural Managementís submission style guide.

The deadline for submission is June 30th, 2014. Please submit manuscripts via ScholarOne at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ccmij
