Introduction : problem, relevance and research question -- The concept of management control -- Literature review on current studies on management control in MNCS -- Cultural research on Central and Eastern Europe -- Method -- Sample -- Empirical results : western management control in CEE --Major findings -- Summary
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
