A Political Innovator? How Political Networking Affects Firm Exploration vs. Exploitation

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

    Abstract

    Political networking is frequently used in transition economies to gain superior performance. This study draws on upper echelons theory (UET) and the resource-based view (RBV) to analyze the relationship between political networking and firm innovation moderated by the core
    self-evaluation (CSE) of the CEO. Based on a sample of 381 manufacturing firms extracted from the Entrepreneurs Survey System of Chinese CEOs with 2014 data from the Jiangsu province, the study finds that political networking is positively related to explorative and exploitative innovation but negatively moderated by the CSE of the CEOs.
