Prolonged Pickets


What’s in a protest? Much more than clever slogans! In a new article in the Administrative Science Quarterly, Lori Qingyuan Yue, Hayagreeva Rao, and Paul Ingram explore the long-term effects of protest against corporations moving into a neighborhood and the effects these protests have on future companies in setting up shop in the same location.

The Abstract from the paper Information Spillovers from Protests against Corporations – A Tale of Walmart and Target:

In this study of the impact of protests against Walmart (a first entrant) on Target (a second entrant) from 1998 to 2008 in U.S. geographic markets, we develop and test a theory of information spillovers from protests against corporations proposing to enter a new market. We argue that the number of protests directed against a first entrant is a noisy signal for the second entrant because such protests are likely to be dominated by protest-prone activists and so do not reflect the sentiments of the community. The second entrant is likely to discount protests against the first entrant that are led by protest-prone activists and rely instead on protests led by local, decentralized activists as indicative of a community’s preferences. We argue that the second entrant differentiates between protests against the first-entrant firm and the organizational form, and discounts protests against a asq coverspecific firm but not those against the form (e.g., big-box stores). Further, the second entrant is likely to rely on the reaction of the first entrant as an indication of the meaning of the protest. Finally, all of these signaling effects will be stronger in markets in which the second entrant has no experience and so lacks local knowledge. The study provides broad support for our arguments.

Journal of Management February Issue Now Online!

JOM_v38_72ppiRGB_powerpointThe Journal of Management February 2013 issue has been published online at Now through Feb. 23, enjoy free access to the latest papers on topics including corporate social performance, behavioral reactions to perceived injustice, employees’ perceptions of high-performance HR practices, and much more. Jason R. Pierce and Herman Aguinis, both of Indiana University, published the lead article, “The Too-Much-of-a-Good-Thing Effect in Management“:

A growing body of empirical evidence in the management literature suggests that antecedent variables widely accepted as leading to desirable consequences actually lead to negative outcomes. These increasingly pervasive and often countertheoretical findings permeate levels of analysis (i.e., from micro to macro) and management subfields (e.g., organizational behavior, strategic management). Although seemingly unrelated, the authors contend that this body of empirical research can be accounted for by a meta-theoretical principle they call the too-much-of-a-good-thing effect (TMGT effect). The authors posit that, due to the TMGT effect, all seemingly monotonic positive relations reach context-specific inflection points after which the relations turn asymptotic and often negative, resulting in an overall pattern of curvilinearity. They illustrate how the TMGT effect provides a meta-theoretical explanation for a host of seemingly puzzling results in key areas of organizational behavior (e.g., leadership, personality), human resource management (e.g., job design, personnel selection), entrepreneurship (e.g., new venture planning, firm growth rate), and strategic management (e.g., diversification, organizational slack). Finally, the authors discuss implications of the TMGT effect for theory development, theory testing, and management practice.
