Effect of marketing control on export venture performance : the moderating role of relationship intensity and market dynamism
Journal of Global Marketing
Channel relationship, Control mechanism, Export venture performance, Market dynamism
Although the prescriptive literature in the area of international marketing asserts that effective control of foreign distributors can lead to superior export performance, there is very little empirical data to support it. The few studies that examined the effect of control on export performance reported very mixed findings and did not address whether control mechanisms interact with environmental uncertainty and channel relationship to influence the performance of export ventures. In order to address this gap in the literature, this study tests whether or not market dynamism (in terms environmental uncertainty) and relationship intensity play a moderating role regarding the effect of control on export venture performance.
