Extra-Role Behavior in a Channel Context: Its predictors and consequences

Abstract

In export businesses where overseas agents enjoy much better knowledge of customers, competitors and institutional environments, a major challenge facing export channel management is encouraging extra-role behavior in forms of agents’ spontaneous, cooperative, and innovative actions when formulating and executing strategic decisions for export markets. This study addressed this major challenge by developing an integrated model of agents’ extra-role behavior which proposed that the exercise of economic, social, and justice related sharedness mechanisms when making and executing strategic decisions of channel partnerships can be expected to have a positive effect on channel relationship performance. The model was tested by a sample of 353 exporting manufacturers. The empirical evidence showed that channel relationship performance was strongly and positively affected by agents’ extra-role behavior over strategy formulation and implementation. Exporting firms are advised to enhance likelihood of agents’ extra-role behavior over strategy formulation and implementation by expanding inter-organizational sharedness mechanisms in the forms of agency contracts’ inclusiveness, agency relationships’ trust, and agency decision-making procedures’ justice.
