Understanding the Coevolution between Institutional and Business Dynamics: A Longitudinal Study in Taiwanese Business Groups
Lin, Hung (2008) Understanding the Coevolution between Institutional and Business Dynamics: A Longitudinal Study in Taiwanese Business Groups. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
Business groups are a special type of enterprise systems existing in almost every emerging economy, and act as the microeconomic agents of industrial growth in many successful late-industrialising countries in the 20th century. Because the groups are important and pervasive, a large number of related researches have been undertaken from different disciplinary angles, such as economic and sociological views. Despite these abundant studies, little attention has been paid to the dynamic nature of the business group strategies. Focusing on the longitudinal studies on the evolutionary patterns of two different strategies in three Taiwanese business groups during the institutional transitions, this research integrates the static views of group strategies and advances the understanding of the coevolving institutional and business dynamics.
