Abstract Research suggests that customer-brand disidentification is a pertinent source for the breakdown of consumer-brand relationships and a reason why consumers turn against brands. However, practical and theoretical interest in the study of customer-brand disidentification has been hindered by the absence of a reliable scale with confirmed predictive validity. As a result, the purpose of this study is to develop, operationalize, and test a measure of customer-brand disidentification based on...
Abstract This study examines whether franchisees are less likely to default on loans compared to counterpart independent SMEs. Findings from analyses of SME loan defaults between 2001 and 2015 suggest that franchisees, young and old, were just as likely to default than non-franchisee counterparts. The likelihood of loan default is higher for franchisees than for non-franchisees for those with high debt burdens. While default rates vary by sector, these findings are robust to sector-specific esti...

Abstract Business ecosystems are an important form of inter-organizational cooperation and potential driver of a company’s success. Strong ecosystems strike a balance between their actors’ cooperative value contribution and competitive value appropriation. However, our understanding of the value that an ecosystem actor’s contributed input (any resource and/or capability) adds to the ecosystem is so far limited. Building on a review of the resource-based view (RBV), the institutional view, and th...

Abstract Co-creation has been lauded for the exceptional benefits it offers to engaged actors, with a particular emphasis on its ability to empower previously passive, and sometimes disadvantaged, customers. Drawing on de Certeau’s notion of the tactics of the weak, we problematize this romantic view, unpacking some of the often unarticulated, opportunistic motives and behaviours of firms in co-creation processes in practice. We develop our contribution in the context of a small software busines...

Abstract Drawing on social identity theory, we present an integrative framework that simultaneously examines the beneficial intragroup effects and detrimental intergroup effects of leader group prototypicality. We use multiphase, multisource, multilevel data to show that leader group prototypicality strengthens group members’ group identification, which, in turn, drives group members to achieve better group performance and to show less engagement in intergroup citizenship behavior. Moreover, rel...

Abstract We propose that dieters hold different lay beliefs about diet approaches, and we categorize dieters into two main types: abstainers, who try to avoid certain types of food entirely, and balancers, who allow “everything in moderation” and strategically indulge during their diets. Building on prior research on implicit self-beliefs, we develop and validate a Diet Balancing Scale (Studies 1 and 2a-b), which assesses lay beliefs about whether balancing or abstinence is a more effective diet...

Abstract A social bank has been argued as a viable solution to empower disadvantaged business customers through a long-term relationship. Despite the importance of business relationship, there is little empirical evidence of how the dynamic bundling of the relationship quality dimensions evolve to make an economic and social impact. Drawing on the social exchange theory, this study presents a social banking relationship quality (SBRQ) model for business customers using the Grameen Bank in Bangla...

Abstract This study examines preferential treatment and its effect on customer gratitude and customer outcomes in the B2B context. Drawing on social exchange theory, the paper investigates to what extent different categories of firm-initiated interactions (standardized and customized) have an impact on customer gratitude and relationship strength, and on other transactional and non-transactional customer outcomes (profitability and word-of-mouth). A dynamic panel data estimation was developed ba...

Abstract Augmented Reality (AR) has emerged as an effective, interactive technology for providing visual product information. Using consumers’ control, this study attempts to identify the possible mediators of the relationship between AR experience and consumers’ purchase intention, and the boundary conditions of AR experience. Studies 1a and 1b show that an AR experience in a shopping environment stimulates purchase intention, cognitive control, and behavioral control. Mediation analysis is con...

Abstract We consider how inventor- and firm-level knowledge characteristics co-determine an inventor’s propensity of joining another firm. Specifically, we examine the influence of knowledge impact, knowledge specialization, core status within the firm, and knowledge complexity on an inventor’s decision to depart the firm and join either an entrepreneurial venture or another established firm. We then examine how the incumbent firm’s knowledge complexity moderates the relationship between individ...
