Sample text

Notably, adherence to centralized strategy making does not necessarily imply that an organization makes resource-committing decisions, although strategic deliberations can outline the main directions for future organizational activities. Centralized strategy making can refer to a discourse in which managers across an organization engage in systematic, analysis-based discussions about the future strategic development of the corporation (Hendry, 2000). The outcome of the centralized strategy-making process may be a formalized plan, while underlying discussions might serve to provide managers with a better understanding of the corporation’s strategic situation.

The authors conclude with a discussion of the most pressing issues and trends in the literature, and provide practical recommendations for managers who strive to increase global teams’ effectiveness. In Chapter 32, Wolfgang Elsik and Michael Muller-Carmen note that human rights and ethical issues have tended to be neglected in international HRM, echoing some of the concerns raised in Chapter 9 about the routine ethical violations by prominent MNCs in a number of emerging market contexts. The authors ascribe this neglect not only to the dominant focus on managerialism and economic performance in much of the international HRM, but also the neglect of supply chain issues.

Recent work highlights the fact that MNEs and, in particular, their subsidiaries are often exposed to multiple and conflicting institutional demands (Battilana and Dorado, 2010; Kostova and Roth, 2002; Kraatz and Block, 2008; Pache and Santos, 2010). When institutional demands of the MNE parent (headquarters) and host (subsidiaries) countries diverge, obtaining legitimacy becomes considerably more challenging. The more institutional environments differ, the more difficult it becomes for subsidiaries to conform their practices to the logics of both environments, and to maintain internal and external legitimacy (Kostova and Roth, 2002; Kostova and Zaheer, 1999).
