Abstract

This article examines the growth of the firm in China from an information-processing perspective. Prior work has found that Chinese firms adopt a network-based strategy by relying extensively on the development of inter-organizational relationships to achieve their growth. We delineate a framework that links strategic choices for growth and the associated information-processing requirements. We then argue that there is a good fit between the capability of Chinese managers who are skilled at processing socially embedded `soft' information and the information-processing requirements of the network-based strategy. Three propositions drawn from this perspective are proposed, and their implications for future work are discussed.
