Abstract :

Turbulence in today’s business operations is unavoidable. This has put intense pressure to the organization resulting in continuous search of measures that would enable organizations to overcome such situations to be more competitive, hence improving the performance. This research study is about entrepreneurial orientation among Shin-Etsu Employees. Three hypotheses were formulated based on the theoretical framework and supported by Research based view (RBV) theory. The quantitative research was conducted by using validated research questionnaire. The population comprised of employees working in Shin-Etsu Malaysia. The total number of respondents was 477 out of 632 randomly selected. An overall response rate of 75.47 per cent was obtained. Multiple regression analysis was utilized to analyse the data to ensure that all the necessary assumption is met (high, medium and low level of Shin-Etsu Malaysia employees). The results revealed that all three hypotheses tested were supported by relations. This study is expected to contribute to academic research and management practice in Shin-Etsu Malaysia organizations. The limitation of the study is that the samples selected were only from Shin-Etsu Malaysia. A future research based on a mixed method longitudinal study should be conducted to gain better understanding on the patterns, determinants and dynamics of the changes among the constructs’ hypothesis in different sectors of the industries or businesses.
