Tarun Khanna is Director of Harvard University’s inter-disciplinary South Asia Institute, and the Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor at the Harvard Business School. An expert on emerging markets, he writes extensively in economics strategy and management journals, is an occasional newspaper columnist, and was recently elected a Fellow of the Academy of International Business and a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. Tarun Khanna is the author of Billions of Entrepreneurs: How China and India are Reshaping their Futures, and Yours (Harvard Business Press, 2008), and coauthor of Winning in Emerging Markets: A Roadmap for Strategy and Execution (Harvard Business Press, 2010), both translated into multiple languages. He serves as a board member of several publicly traded and venture-backed companies worldwide, as well as of non-profits in the U.S. and India

A thriving stream of research in strategic management has examined how institutional voids, a term coined by Tarun Khanna and Krishna Palepu in an article in 1997, helps understand the fundamentals of emerging markets. The voids refer to the absence of specialized intermediation that compromises the coming together of would-be buyers and would-be sellers, thus making markets 'emerging' rather than 'emerged.' The voids are a double-edged sword, both forcing managers and entrepreneurs to adapt their business model, but also themselves the target of opportunities for entrepreneurs, policymakers and investors. This plenary keynote will discuss the state-of-the-art of theory and of practice, with a particular focus on addressing the especially insidious institutional voids that prevent four of the world's seven billion currently disenfranchised people from engaging with the economic mainstream.

As developing economies in Latin America opened up to the global economy in recent years, a number of local firms not only survived battles for dominance and defense of their local markets. But many of them also expanded abroad, not merely through exports but importantly through foreign direct investments and partnerships, to become fully fledged multinational enterprises in their own right, and turned into formidable companies. Companies such as LAN, Arcor, Gerdau, and Bimbo, among many, have become formidable “challengers” in the global arena. Why have these firms gone global so aggressively? What competitive advantages do they enjoy? What are the origins of these sources of advantage (e.g., market-based, resource-based, institutional-based)? Professors Margaret Peteraf and Margarethe Wiersema will each expose their views on the matter, and take questions from the audience. (see full session details)

The resource-based view (RBV) of the firm is one of the most widely accepted theories of strategic management. Its academic roots are often pointed to be at the seminal work by Edith Penrose (1959) who proposed a theory of the growth of the firm, by which organizations would expand from excess of idle resources. Yet, it wasn’t until the 1980s (e.g., Wernerfelt, 1984; Barney, 1986; Dierickx and Cool, 1989) and early 1990s (e.g., Barney, 1991; Peteraf, 1993) that more established academic language and theoretical precepts began to be offered. In this panel, two of the main proponents of these theoretical principles, Profs. Jay Barney and Margaret Peteraf join efforts to each expose their views on what the resource-based view is, how it has evolved, and what future lies to its influence in the field of strategic management. They will also be open to take questions directly from the audience. (see full session details)
