520    How can multinational corporations effectively manage and 
       control their subsidiaries in transition countries? Our 
       empirical study of 40 multinational headquarters for 
       Central- and Eastern Europe sheds light onto effective 
       subsidiary management in transition countries. More 
       specifically, we explore how the context and culture of 
       CEE impacts the choiceand applicability of headquarters 
       controlin subsidiaries. We find that the great majority of
       multinationals govern their subsidiaries rathercentrally 
       and rely on a mix of formal and informal control 
       mechanisms.Grounded on rich interviews with 50 senior 
       executives we provide a model of fit between the type and 
       extent of MNC control exertedand the specific transitional
       and cultural context of the region. Our study contributes 
       to the understanding of management control twofold: 
       Theoretically, by providing a comprehensive framework of 
       factors determining the cross-border applicability of 
       control mechanisms based on a literature review of 95 
       articles in leading international business journals. 
       Empirically, by delivering keen insights by best practices
       into how control mechanisms can be successfully introduced
       in subsidiaries locatedin transition economies
