Abstract:
This dissertation develops a local-global theoretical perspective based on principles from cultural-cognitive institutional theory. Within this framework, the primary focus is the social construction of institutional logics and organizational forms in Sichuan, China's broader global environment. Institutional logics are defined as the taken-for-granted organizing principles that shape strategic action. It is asserted that these logics interact and become embedded in organizational forms centered on ownership structure and core technologies. During the fall of 2002, over one hundred interviews were conducted at the furniture, food processing, and pharmaceutical trade fairs in Chengdu. This data was used to examine China's societal logics in the context of the furniture industry and Chinese firms' diversification strategy. In addition, a case study of a textile firm is used to explore how China's societal logics have changed since the economic reforms began in the 1970s. Finally, correspondence analysis is used to map out the relationships between the institutional logics and the organizational forms.
