Hi, Iâ€™m doing my phd thesis , its about changing retail trends in the gulf countries , my supervisor asked me to read about the internalization in the beginning than narrow my thesis to what I want to focus on , so now I want to write about What does internationalisation mean, why do firms internationalise, how do firms internationalise, and when is this done? The review extant literature will reveal some theories/models that cover this stream. Youâ€™ll find arguments that focuses on areas like: Factor Endowments & International Product Life Theories, Economics-oriented perspectives of internationalisation like: Internalisation (or transaction cost) theory, Eclectic paradigm, Stage of development models, Network theories, Business Strategy/Contingency theories, Resource-based theory, etc. You then link the arguments from this initial part to Retail Internationalisation (the focus of my research).
With Retail Internationalisation youâ€™ll equally review major arguments here â€“ meaning of retail internationalisation, and theories/models/frameworks of retail internationalisation some of which include: Hollanderâ€™s contribution, Salmon and Tordjmanâ€™s Classification, Dawsonâ€™s Assessment, Sternquistâ€™s SIRE Model, Dohertyâ€™s contribution, Vida, Reardon, and Fairhurstâ€™s IRI Model, Picot-Coupeyâ€™s Framework, and others.
This textbook will help enrich the understanding in this area: Nicholas Alexander and Anne Marie Doherty, (2009), International retailing International retailing, Oxford University Press.
