Questions about Change over Time in Cross-Cultural Organizational Research
Conceptually, the phenomena of interest in many organizational research questions are in fact about changes and processes that unfold in various ways over time. Unfortunately, longitudinal studies that explicitly assess change over time is generally lacking in organizational research and virtually absent in cross-cultural organizational research. The large majority of the literature on cross-cultural measurement in organization research is focused exclusively on cross-sectional data, addressing cross-cultural differences in measurement and constructs without examining the temporal dimension of measurement and constructs. This article explicates 9 fundamental questions about change over time and applies them to the study of changes over time in cross-cultural organizational research.
