Internationalization speed, resources and performance: Evidence from Indian software industry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Rapid internationalization provides firms with quick access to global markets, but also constrains their capacity to absorb the expansion. Identifying the resources and capabilities that are most likely to moderate the relationship between rapid internationalization and performance is, therefore, of great interest. We focus on the software service industry in the specific context of the Indian emerging economy and investigate the role of linkage, leverage and learning capabilities. We use a unique longitudinal dataset from the Indian software sector as a setting to test our posited relationships and our findings largely support our predictions.
