An Eclectic theory of the choice of international entry mode

Author: Kim, W. Chan ; Hill, C.INSEAD Area: StrategyIn: Strategic Management Journal, vol. 11, feb. 1990 Language: EnglishDescription: p.117-128.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask the Library for this articleAbstract: The choice of entry mode into a foreign market has a major impact on the success of a firm's international operations. However, the existing literature on the entry mode decision has either presented a list of considerations without identifying underlying constructs, or treated each entry decision in isolation. A unifying theory is developed which identifies three underlying constructs that influence the entry mode decision. These constructs are thus linked to considerations which have been previously discussed in the literature. It is argued that a firm's choice of entry mode depends on the strategic relationship the firm envisages between its operations across borders. A particular entry decision cannot be viewed in isolation. It must be considered in relation to the overall strategic posture of the firm. Further, the paper argues that different variables often suggest different entry modes, and that resolving these differences involves accepting trade-offs
