Subsidiaries of Multinationals are the Source of Novel Practices
In the discussion and conclusion part, Edwards et al., (2015) have focused on the variables that attained significance and then relate them to previous studies. To address this issue, it may be appropriate to increase the size of study samples. For instance, future studies should increase the number of countries to be studied. Although these researchers have concluded that they used large cross-national data to investigate the issues, they have not included data from the whole world. They have incorporated three countries from Europe and one country from America. therefore, their findings are not representative of all parts of the world. Previous research studies that have focused on many countries as subjects for comparison have come up with quality results and findings.
This paper makes a conclusion that despite these flaws, this study offered great insights and forms a basis for future research. Towards the end of this article, the researchers have suggested future research to support the existing research and propose new findings. This could be interpreted as the researchers’ propositional for triangulation. Although the authors had earlier indicated that the objective of their study was to emphasize on the field of human resource, future research should focus on RD across different areas of management practices. According to Sparrow (2014), research on reverse diffusion should be intensified because RD is taking place at a very high rate and various groups have an interest in engaging in it.
