With the development of organizations and their expansion, and connection to free business global market, the role of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) will appear in space of global competition day to day. Now, these organizations must increase the power of self competition with appropriate visions to gain the ability of competition in the world competitive markets. This research studies the impact of both domestic partner relationships and environmental uncertainty on Iran SMEs’ localization strategy and assesses whether this strategy influences the performance of firms. Results showed that environmental stability and domestic network partnerships influence the degree of localization positively and this in turn influences the firm’s internationalization performance. The research findings can help SMEs’ managers, in that the effective use of localization strategies and also can help them to gain competitive advantage and achieve superior performance.
Key words: Internationalization, performance, growth, small and medium enterprises, Iran.

Proposal of a model for effective management and development of virtual teams

Petr Skyrik


The main aim of this paper is to present a pilot proposal of a model of “Virtual Development Management System” (ViDeMaS) which will facilitate more effective management and development of virtual teams. Management and development of virtual teams is not a simple concept. It comprises a body of knowledge from a number of fields and scientific disciplines. The complexity of the koncept may not be simplified as it is absolutely essential for full understanding of its nature. In order to gain better orientation in the concept, different perspectives will be used in the description of the model, which will enable us to achieve the goal of the work and to present the main results of the work (creation of a model for Virtual Development Management System). The present paper thus describes from different perspectives the proposal of a sufficiently detailed and complex model that may be utilized both on theoretical and application level.

Abstract:Purpose – A virtual organization (VO) is a set of geographically dispersed and functionally diverse organizational entities interconnected by electronic forms of communication that cooperate with one another for a common valued outcome. The objective of this article is to propose a research framework that illustrates the development of trust between VOs.
Design/methodology/approach – This paper provides an overview of literature on VOs, identifies antecedents of trustworthiness in virtual environment, explores the role of boundary spanners' interpersonal trust, and relates them to inter-VO trust formation. A research analysis is developed that depicts the proposed relationships.
Findings – The propositions shed light on the overall interorganizational trust building process in VOs. In doing so, the framework also acknowledges the role of individual boundary spanners of a trustor organization in the trust development process.
Originality/value – Systematic scholarly research relating to VOs has been somewhat limited. With the emergence of VOs as important organizational forms, there is an increasing need to comprehend how interorganizational trust is developed and maintained in VOs. This study attempts to fill this gap in the extant literature by exploring how social exchange factors in a virtual context relate to factors of organizational trustworthiness of the trustee organization. In addition, this paper also investigates the key role played by the boundary spanners of both organizations in the trust formation process.
