MGMT20144 – Assessment Item 1 – Sample Annotated Bibliography Write a short 150 word introduction discussing why the contextual factors are important to organisational decision making. The introduction is 150 words in total not 150 words per article. Dang, R., Houanti, A. L., Le, N. T., & Vu, M.-C. (2018). Does corporate governance influence firm performance? Quantile regression evidence from a transactional economy. Applied Economics Letters, 25(14), 984-988. DOI: 10.1080/13504851.2017.1390309 The main contextual factor discussed in this journal article is organisational governance. Specifically the authors applied a new research and analysis approach to studying the relationship between governance structures and firm performance in Vietnamese organisations. Three aspects of governance were examined: board independence, CEO duality and board size. The research found that the higher the proportion of independent directors on the board, that is directors who neither work for the firm nor have extensive dealings with the company, the lower the performance of the firm. Likewise, when CEO duality is present, that is the CEO also serves as the board chair the lower the performance of the firm. However, the research found no relationship between the size of the board and the performance of the firm. In this research, firm performance or return on assets was measured by calculating operating income before depreciation divided by total assets. The implications of this research is that firms should carefully consider the structure of their boards if they want high performing organisations. Specifically, the board directors should have some association with the firm as it appears that when a director works for the frim or has regulator contact with the firm, this intimate knowledge and understanding improves the performance of the firm. In addition, firms should carefully consider keeping the board chair position separate from the management structure of the firm; in particular, the CEO should not be the chair of the firm. Write 4 more summaries that cite the reference first following by a description of the main contextual factor being discussed in the journal article, the new findings in relation to the contextual factor, and what these findings mean for managers in organisations. Write a short 200 word conclusion recommending one specific contextual factor as most important to the organisational performance of the Big 4 Banks (Commonwealth, ANZ, Westpac, NAB).

For example, the concept of employee engagement is defined as the extent to which employees feel passionate about their jobs, are committed to the organisation, and put discretionary effort into their work. It has a cognitive, affective, and behavioural component. Theory: is a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something. For example, increasing employee engagement will increase performance, customer satisfaction, profitability and productivity, and reduce employee turnover. Meaning of words Critical evaluation of managerial actions: give your verdict as to what extent a statement or findings within a piece of research are true, or to what extent you agree with them. Provide evidence taken from a wide range of sources which both agree with and contradict an argument. Impact: what is the effect or influence of the contextual factor on the organisation?

A paragraph is more than one sentence. Introduce a new topic in a new paragraph, don’t write overly long paragraphs. Make the first or last sentence the topic sentence of the paragraph. Write using formal academic language and specific Management and Business Context words, theories, concepts and terms. Avoid using casual conversational language.

Introduction
The business environments have changed a lot in last few decades. Competition has been growing consistently and the importance of contextual factors like environmental forces, risks, business practices, etc. have risen along with it. With rapid advances in technology, government
laws and policies have also changed to keep up with the changing environmental factors. Keeping all of these in mind firms across the globe are trying hard to align their strategic objectives is to achieve sustainable growth and be ready for the future.
Diversification is the most common strategy adopted by organizations to accelerate growth. They achieve this by entering new and emerging markets via the route of strategic partnerships, forming alliances, etc. But the risk of failure and wrong interpretation of external factors has dire consequences for any organization.
Kim, S., & Jin, K. (2016). Organizational governance of inter-firm resource combinations: The impact of structural embeddedness and vertical resource relatedness. Journal of Management & Organization, 23(04), 524-544. Doi:10.1017/jmo.2016.9
In order to gain sustainable advantage and better utilization of resources, firms across the globe are forming alliances or getting involved in Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A). But how to decide which one to choose? An Alliance or M&A? The authors of this paper tried to reflect on the challenges faced during inter-firm resource combinations. According to the findings in the paper, governance choice needs to be a bilateral decision with opportunities for joint value creation and value appropriation.
For this study, the authors have chosen "Governance choice" as the dependent variable. For estimation, the author has chosen the "probit model." Using different hypothesis as bases author was able to prove the positive impacts of independent variables like "Resource similarity", "Vertical Relatedness" and "Structural embededness" on the dependent variable. Authors were also able to confirm the importance of prior Alliance or M&A experience on a firms future decisions.
This study sheds light on the importance of factors like structural embededness and geographical cluster co-location in governance choice. These factors were traditionally neglected by managers but, this study proves their importance. Alliances provide firms with a pool of resource but the firm don’t own each other’s resources but on the other hand going M&A ends up with providing the firm with controlling rights over other firm's resources. Hence managers have to be extremely cautious about factors like vertical relatedness and resource similarity while choosing between Alliance and M&A.
