Kurzfassung



Kurzfassung (englisch)


The process of internationalization of firms from emerging economies is relatively under-researched. The present study seeks to contribute to this research stream by examining key strategic issues involved in the internationalization process of Indian firms. The study also proposes to look "inside" these firms, to examine evidence of organizational transformation, and the emergence of newer organizational forms and capabilities in this internationalization context. In the Indian context, subject literature and reports in the media suggest an ongoing transformation in the economy and in Indian companies over the last few years, as India has opened itself to world markets. Working inductively from this observation, this study examines the literature on internationalization theory, organization theory, and the research on organizational transformation and capabilities, to identify what strategic issues and organizational design factors are suggested to be important in the internationalization context. Hypotheses and study questions are developed, which are finally tested via a "grounded" methodology, including case study and secondary data and survey analysis. Key findings suggest that simultaneous to the opening up of the Indian economy to international markets, leading Indian companies have undergone significant transformation towards newer forms of organizing over the last 5 years. This transformation is seen across a range of organizational variables grouped under structure, processes, human resources, leadership, and culture. The study also finds evidence to support the hypotheses that such organizational transformations are associated with organizational performance. In addition, the findings shed light on key strategic issues before internationalizing Indian companies. Finally, the study finds evidence of an inverted U-shaped relationship between increasing internationalization and organizational performance in a large sample of Indian companies.
