Abstract

Social and psychological factors such as self‐responsibility and collectivist value orientation are crucial to understanding the dynamics of joint venture management. Tests the hypothesis that structural factors influence the socio‐psychological orientation of managers in terms of self‐responsibility and collectivist values which, in turn, affects the performance of companies. Discusses the findings from interviews and questionnaires with 151 top and middle managers from 72 companies. Found that top managers have a higher internally determined self‐responsibility and a stronger group adaptation value orientation than middle managers. These factors are crucial indicators of managerial performance in joint ventures. Therefore the results support the hypothesis.
