Almost 30 years after Anderson and Gatignon systematically conceptualized various entry modes, the scholarly research on their performance effects has accumulated a large amount of empirical evidence. However, research has progressed in a somewhat fragmented manner where the cumulative impact of entry modes is difficult to discern and the entry-performance relationship still remains a conundrum in IB research. This study consolidates and meta-analyzes the empirical findings reported from 44 independent studies. While the results show an overall significant effect of entry modes on performance, more fine-tuned meta-analyses unravel that the effects of entry modes vary with the performance types and a number of plausible contingencies. Findings are discussed in terms of implications for future research and limitations.
