Mark Mallon, assistant professor of strategic management, researched the in-crisis performance of multinational enterprises in relation to pre-crisis development of asset management capabilities.
Management professor Mark Mallon’s research on the performance of multinational enterprises before and during crises was recently published in International Business Review.
The paper, “MNE performance during a crisis: An evolutionary perspective on the role of dynamic managerial capabilities and industry context,” was co-authored by Stav Fainshmidt, assistant professor of management at Florida International University, Anil Nair, professor and chair of management at Old Dominion University, and Mallon.
The authors researched a sample of 854 large multinational enterprises in the context of the global financial crisis of 2008. They proposed that multinational enterprises in-crisis performance is associated with the pre-crisis development of asset management capabilities, or the capacity of managers to orchestrate assets so as to extract more value from the firm’s resource pool.
The paper was published in Volume 26, Issue 6 of the journal.
