This study seriously challenges the conventional view that value creation is a function of singular positive influences. On the contrary, this study establishes that value creation is multi-dimensional and submits that a more refined way to augment performance is to develop an ability to combine relevant firm-specific and location-specific factors so that they can, if needed, offset the impositions of each other.




This paper is a qualitative extension of the author’s 2008 Multinational Business Review article. An earlier version of that study was a Best paper finalist at the 2004 Academy of International Business conference.
