DAMIAN ZIĘBA S3269205 1) M. Peng, E. Pleggenkuhle-Miles “Current debates in global strategies” Background and setting : overview of academic debate on global strategy (overview:current debates) Research aim and question: Innovative/ unique way/ review to help push the field ahead Theoretical foundations : institution-based view - rules of the game around the world Research methods : discussion, critique, summary, connection between papers (literature review) Main results and findings : debates connected by institution-based view. (time-related dynamic). First two debates more international business (explicit aspects), last two more strategic management (CSR). Other 2 topics than institution-; industry- and resource-based views (strategy tripod). Topics: Cultural vs institutional distance; global vs regional geographic diversification; convergence vs divergence in corporate governance; domestic vs overseas corporate social responsibility (CSR). 2) I. Alon, J. Higgins “Global leadership success through emotional and cultural intelligences” Background and setting: globalization and leadership -> What (global) leaders need in future (types of intelligence) after having success on a local level Research aim and question: why are emotional and cultural intelligence critical to successful global leadership (and how they may be developed in global leaders) Theoretical foundations : literature on leadership, EQ, IQ and CQ (to a certain extent) (theoretic analysis of leadership; some research from psychology and connecting to business; so connecting different fields together) Research methods : Not a typical literature review, collection of data by surveys of others (secondary data). So it’s more empirical, because they test other people’s surveys (and they do the empirical process). (the tests were not included in the papers, but they are there).
