Abstract

English Abstract: Child and Marinova's (2014) framework provides an important conceptual tool to analyze the globalization of Chinese firms by highlighting the Chinese context and the context of the host country. Their framework is defined by two dimensions: political stability and institutional maturity, which needs to be augmented by a cultural dimension. To illustrate this argument, I review the importance of a broadened notion of cultural distance, intercultural competence, and intergroup dynamics in shaping the learning and adaptation, and eventual success of Chinese expatriates and firms in their global expansion. There is a severe lack of research on the culture‐related issues confronting Chinese global firms, a priority area for future research.

Chinese Abstract: 通过强调中国情境和东道国情境,Child和Marinova(2014)的研究框架为分析中国企业的全球化提供了重要的概念工具。他们的研究框架分为两个维度:政治稳定性和制度成熟度,但这两个维度都需要一个文化维度来加强。为了展示这种论述,我回顾了文化距离的扩展性概念—跨文化胜任力以及在塑造学习和适应中群体间的动态性的重要性,这些最终导致中国外派人员和企业在全球扩展中的成功。现有研究缺乏对中国海外企业遇到的问题的研究,这将是未来研究中的优先领域。
