Abstract

This study extends dynamic capability theory to the new setting (international joint ventures) in a new environment (emerging market). The study emphasizes (1) how the two dimensions of an IJV s dynamic capability, namely, capability exploitation and capability exploration, are associated with the venture s financial and competitive outcomes, and (2) how environmental dynamism (the key construct characterizing an emerging market) and interpartner cooperation (the key construct describing an IJV) may moderate the link between dynamic capability and IJV performance. Overall, our analysis of sample IJVs in China validates these propositions. We highlighted theoretical and managerial implications based on the key findings.
