  • Jack Ting-Ju Chiang: Understanding Veterans’ Affective Reactions Toward Newcomer Entry in Teams From an Affective Events Perspective

    The paper entitled Feeling Negative or Positive About Fresh Blood? Understanding Veterans’ Affective Reactions Toward Newcomer Entry in Teams From an Affective Events Perspective aims to investigate where, how and when new employees of an existing work team trigger multiplex affective reactions among team veterans. Employing affective events theory (AET), Jack Ting-Ju Chiang, Associate Professor from Guanghua School of Management, Peking University, together with his coauthors found that the entry of newcomers can bring multiplex affective consequences for veterans, depending on the type of newcomer dissimilarity to the team and the team’s prior performance. The study found that a team’s prior state may shape team veterans’ various affective reactions toward newcomer entry in different ways, offering a contingency view for understanding the complex process of newcomer entry in the context of ongoing teamwork.

  • Imitation, Innovation, and Technological Complexity: Foreign Knowledge Spillovers in China

    ​Professor Han Pengfei collaborated with his peers to examine the phenomenon of foreign knowledge spillovers in China. In this study, the team found that over time, Chinese firms have gained leadership over foreign firms in China both in terms of production and patenting. However, while foreign firms have lost market leadership in low-tech (simple) industries, they have maintained strong leadership in high-tech (complex) industries. Exploring foreign knowledge spillovers using patent citations data, the team also shows that only firms in low-tech (simple) industries eventually decrease their reliance on foreign knowledge for innovation. The findings suggest that imitation is a path to indigenous innovation only in low-tech (simple) industries and point to the need of industry-specific policies.
