Professor Xiao then asked the research question: Does digitization have an impact on the division of labor?If so, in what direction?Taking China's A-share listed companies from 2010 to 2018 as the initial research samples, Professor Xiao finally obtained 15,942 annual observed values of 2,359 companies through screening and elimination under certain conditions.The data were used for modeling and analysis, and the endogeneity problem was solved by instrumental variable method, exogenous shock event test method, and difference method based on propensity score matching (PSM-DID).Prof Xiao also uses other robustness tests: the measure of the degree to which firms change their specialisation, the measure of the degree to which firms change their digitalisation, and the exclusion of explanations of firms' strategic behaviour.Finally, the following conclusions are drawn: the promotion of digitalization degree significantly promotes the specialization of enterprises;The digitalization promotes the specialization of the enterprise mainly through reducing the external transaction cost.The promotion effect of digitalization on specialization is more significant in enterprises with lower internal control cost.Digitization improves the total factor productivity of enterprises by promoting specialization.
