Os projetos globais de desenvolvimento de produtos passam pelas áreas de conhecimento da gestão tradicional de projetos e, adicionalmente, demandam maior atenção de diversos aspectos inerentes ao ambiente global, tais como: coordenação e controle; construção de confiança e cooperação entre as equipes dispersas geograficamente. Outro tema especialmente importante nesse contexto é o processo de comunicação que se torna bastante crítico à medida que os recursos tradicionais de comunicação em projetos (reuniões face-a-face, comunicação não-verbal, visualização do trabalho in loco, entre outros) passam a ser limitados e/ ou substituídos por outros baseados em meios eletrônicos (videoconferência, emails, mensagens instantâneas, entre outros). O objetivo desta pesquisa foi o de mapear as práticas de comunicação aplicadas aos projetos globais e analisar se essas práticas variam de acordo com o tipo e com algumas características do modelo de gestão dos projetos. A unidade de análise escolhida foram os projetos globais de desenvolvimento de produtos de empresas multinacionais brasileiras e o método de pesquisa, o estudo de casos múltiplos. Os resultados permitiram verificar que a freqüência da comunicação nos projetos globais diminui com a distância...

O presente estudo procura compreender os aspectos do global sourcing que agregam valor às subsidiárias no processo de aquisição de seus componentes e serviços, que tem como pano de fundo, o acesso à fontes de suprimentos de forma global. Estratégia de global sourcing refere-se a determinar qual unidade produtiva servirá quais mercados particulares e como componentes/mercadorias/serviços serão adquiridos (DAVIDSON 1982; KOTABE, 1992; McCLINTOCK, 2002). O objetivo principal foi entender a relação entre as principais dimensões de global sourcing que as subsidiárias de corporações multinacionais estrangeiras instalados no Brasil têm empregado e a relação das diretrizes estratégicas da matriz, de autonomia e integração, na relação com as subsidiárias. O estudo abordou as dimensões de propriedade e de localização. Na dimensão propriedade ainda pode ser subdivida em intrafirma, quando a compra tem origem de alguma unidade do sistema corporativo, da matriz ou de outras subsidiárias, ou inter-empresa, que tem como fonte de suprimento, fornecedor independente. Já a dimensão localização considera se o fornecimento é doméstico proveniente de fornecedores nacionais, ou externas, de fornecedores estrangeiros. Survey foi conduzido junto a 1.200 empresas com respostas de 181 subsidiárias de empresas multinacionais localizadas em território nacional de distintos segmentos de mercado...

Several studies about knowledge transfer in multinational corporations have found that the process is influenced by factors such as absorptive capacity, tacit knowledge and power relations, all of which impact knowledge sharing strategies between corporate headquarters and foreign subsidiaries. A multiple case study of Brazilian subsidiaries of three multinational corporations using in-depth interviews, based on a conceptual model consisting of four propositions, was conducted to identify factors linked to the knowledge transfer process and to assess their influence on that transfer. The first proposition tries to assess explicit knowledge, primarily through the use of IT tools; the second analyzes the role of the subsidiary within the corporate network and how it influences the degree of knowledge sharing. The third assesses the influence of subsidiary absorptive capacity and the fourth analyzes the impact of worker exchange programs on knowledge sharing between headquarters and foreign subsidiaries. Study results confirm the four propositions and enable the identification of relationships between factors, especially explicit knowledge and worker expatriation as complementary factors in knowledge transfer strategies.

In this article we analyze the corporate dominance of health care in the United States and the dynamics that have motivated the international expansion of multinational health care corporations, especially to Latin America. We identify the strategies, actions, and effects of multinational corporations in health care delivery and public health policies. Our methods have included systematic bibliographical research and in-depth interviews in the United States, Mexico, and Brazil. Influenced by public policy makers in the United States, such organizations as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organization have advocated policies that encourage reduction and privatization of health care and public health services previously provided in the public sector. Multinational managed care organizations have entered managed care markets in several Latin American countries at the same time as they were withdrawing from managed care activities in Medicaid and Medicare within the United States. Corporate strategies have culminated in a marked expansion of corporations’ access to social security and related public sector funds for the support of privatized health services. International financial institutions and multinational corporations have influenced reforms that...

peer-reviewed; This paper was obtained through PEER (Publishing and the Ecology of European Research) http://www.peerproject.eu; The encouragement of foreign direct investment (FDI) represents a key plank of industrial policy in Ireland. This paper considers the impact of labour issues on the decision of US multinational corporations (MNCs) to locate facilities in Ireland. Drawing on data gathered in ten major US corporations, and from executives employed in the main industrial promotions agencies, this paper evaluates the relative impact of labour issues on the location of MNCs. While our findings point to the critical significance of Ireland’s low corporate tax regime in attracting US FDI to Ireland, they also identify the relative impact of issues such as labour supply, quality and cost, and broader human resource management factors such as labour flexibility and trade union recognition, on the location decision of inward investing MNCs.

As multinational corporations (MNCs) are extending their international operations they need to examine issues such as the localisation of human resource policies and management, and the effective use of local and expatriate managers. Examination of expatriate studies indicates a lack of attention given to the relationships between expatriate managers and local managers or the perspectives of local managers working in MNCs. This thesis attempts to fill these gaps by focusing on the cross-cultural interactions between expatriate and local managers. This thesis addresses the importance of positive cross-cultural understanding between Japanese expatriate managers and local managers in Japanese subsidiaries in Australia, and its effect on work-related outcomes such as job satisfaction and commitment to the organisation. It identifies macro and micro factors which are associated with levels of job satisfaction and commitment of Japanese expatriate managers and Australian managers with special focus on economic functions of industry, communication, and mutual perceptions. Conceptual models for predicting organisational commitment for Japanese expatriate and Australian managers are developed, and the validity of the models is empirically tested. ¶ ...; yes

Theoretically, it is often argued that the international diversification of earnings should enable multinational corporations to sustain higher levels of debt than domestic corporations. Studies using US multinationals often report lower leverage for multinationals relative to domestic corporations, while studies on samples of French and Canadian multinationals find the theoretical relation. This paper extends the research to Japanese multinationals. We find that being a multinational corporation is a significant variable in explaining capital structure for a sample of Japanese firms. We also find that Japanese multinationals have significantly lower leverage than domestic firms. Using a pooled cross-sectional time series regression model with dichotomous interaction variables, the difference in leverage between multinational and domestic corporations is explained by firm age, business risk, free cash flow, growth, nondebt tax shields and political risks. Agency costs, bankruptcy risks, collateral value of assets, foreign exchange risks, profitability and size are not significant in explaining differences in capital structure between multinational and domestic corporations.; no

This study investigates the significance of the determinants of capital structure on a sample of Australian multinational corporations and Australian domestic corporations over the period 1992 to 2001. The determinants of capital structure have captured academic thought for many decades, particularly since Modigliani and Miller (1958). If optimal capital structures do exist and that these structures maximise firm value, obtaining an understanding of the determinants of capital structure is important in obtaining an understanding of the way firms maximise value. Multinational corporations control considerable assets and some multinationals control more assets than that which is controlled by some countries. Decisions about capital structure may have important implications in regards to shareholder wealth effects. Therefore, obtaining an understanding of the determinants of capital structure and the differences between domestic and multinational capital structure is of interest to academics, politicians, shareholders and financiers. The results show that the level of leverage does not differ significantly between multinational and domestic corporations. Using cross-sectional Tobit regression analysis the results show substantial variation in capital structure determinants between multinational and domestic corporations. For both types of organisations growth...

One of the consequences of major regulatory reform of the telecommunications sector from the end of the 1970s – particularly, privatization, liberalization and deregulation – was the establishment of a new business environment which permitted former national telecommunications monopolies to expand abroad. From the 1990s, a number of these firms, particularly those based in Europe, joined the rankings of the world’s leading Multinational Corporations. Their internationalization was uneven, however: while some firms internationalised strongly, others ventured abroad much slower. This article explores how the regulatory framework within which telecommunications incumbents evolved over the long-term shaped their subsequent, uneven, paths to internationalization. Two case studies representing ´maximum variation´ are selected: Telefónica, whose early and unrelenting expansion transformed it into one of the world’s most international of Multinational Corporations, and BT, whose overseas ventures failed and, with eroding domestic market share, forced the firm to partially retreat, becoming the least international of the large European incumbents. Long-term ownership, access to capital, management style and exposure to liberalization strongly influenced firms’ approaches to internationalization

This dissertation is an attempt to use the radical political economy approach, which assumes that there is a connection between a state’s strategic interests and the interests of dominant multinational corporations (MNCs) located within a state’s territory, to explain continuity in the USAID development agenda and lending patterns during the past 30 years of development aid to Haiti. Employing the qualitative method of "process-tracing," my study concludes that the radical political economy approach has an explanatory power when it comes to understanding continuity in the USAID development agenda and lending patterns during the past 30 years of development aid to Haiti. The evidence shows that USAID has implemented in Haiti, from the 1980s through the post-9/11 Washington Consensus period, neoliberal policies that conform to the political economy of US multinational corporations (US MNCs). Contrary to the claim that the USAID-sponsored post-earthquake development paradigm has departed from previous development strategies, the study has shown that USAID has used the occurrence of the January 2010 earthquake tragedy to accelerate in Haiti the implementation of a neoliberal agenda congenial to the business promotion of multinational investors...

A capacidade das empresas multinacionais (EMN) de se adaptar às oportunidades e ameaças de seus mercados é um dos fatores estratégicos de maior importância na dinâmica dos negócios atuais. Essa necessidade de adaptação não se restringe apenas aos países desenvolvidos, mas também aos países emergentes. Nesse contexto faz-se necessário a compreensão da estratégia de empresas multinacionais dos países emergentes através do estudo das capacidades dinâmicas e de seus modelos de gestão. Assim este trabalho teve como objetivo geral analisar o desenvolvimento e a transferência das capacidades dinâmicas entre matriz e subsidiárias. Serviu como fundamento teórico deste estudo, a visão baseada em recursos, a ambidestralidade das organizações (exploration x explotation), as capacidades dinâmicas e os modelos estratégicos de gestão de EMNs. A definição escolhida para as capacidades dinâmicas, “habilidades sistemáticas da organização de integrar, construir e reconfigurar suas competências organizacionais de acordo com as ameaças e oportunidades do mercado”, serviu como base para toda a pesquisa. Em termos metodológicos foi utilizada a abordagem qualitativa, através de estudo de caso único como método de pesquisa. Após definição de alguns critérios (EMNs brasileiras...

En la contratación comercial internacional, celebrada por algunas empresas colombianas con compañías transnacionales, es posible observar la configuración de relaciones que obedecen a un esquema centro-periferia a través de estructuras dominantes con respecto a estructuras dominadas, reflejada en la organización y funcionamiento que tienen las compañías transnacionales y su relación con la empresa nacional, como también con el empleo de algunas cláusulas y prácticas contractuales. Se presenta, además, una complejidad de factores que intervienen en la negociación comercial internacional, con una pluralidad de campos sociojurídicos, gozando de mayor predominio e influencia el campo transnacional.; In international commercial contracts, formed by some Colombian corporations with multinational corporations, it is possible to see how relationships are built around a center-periphery model. This is done through dominant and dominated institutions, and it is evidenced by the organization and operation of multinational corporations, by their relationship with national corporations, and also by the use of certain contractual terms and practices. Furthermore, a series of different elements play a part in international commercial contracts...

This paper examines how the external information environment in which foreign subsidiaries operate affects the investment decisions of multinational corporations (MNCs). We hypothesize and find that the investment decisions of foreign subsidiaries in country-industries with more transparent information environments are more responsive to local growth opportunities than are those of foreign subsidiaries in country-industries with less transparent information environments. Further, this effect is larger when (i) there are greater cross-border frictions between the parent and subsidiary, and (ii) the parents are relatively more involved in their subsidiaries' investment decision-making process. Our results suggest that the external information environment helps mitigate the agency problems that arise when firms expand their operations across borders. This paper contributes to the literature by showing that the external information environment helps MNCs mitigate information frictions within the firm.

Numerous empirical studies have shown the difficulties associated with the transmission of knowledge and the limitations of its diffusion process. What are the implications of these difficulties and limitations to international economics? This dissertation deals with this question by looking at how productive knowledge plays a role in the evolution of the comparative advantage of nations and the international expansion of multinational corporations. The first chapter finds that a country is 65% more likely to start exporting a good that is being exported by any of its geographic neighbors, consistently with evidence on the limited geographic patterns of knowledge diffusion. The second chapter finds that migrants, serving as carriers of productive knowledge, play a role in explaining the appearances of new export industries in both their sending and receiving countries. In particular, in terms of their ability to induce exports in the average country, an increase of only 65,000 people in the stock of migrants is associated with about 15% increase in the likelihood of adding a new product to a country's export basket. The figure becomes 15,000 for skilled migrants. The third chapter looks at how the barriers to knowledge transmission within the firm limit the horizontal expansion of multinational corporations. The findings suggest that multinational corporations are...

non-peer-reviewed; The research team is working on the Irish node an international research project entitled 'Employment Practices of Multinational Corporations (MNCs) in Organisational Context: A Large-scale Survey'. This involves a comprehensive representative survey of employment practice in MNCs in seven countries, Canada, Ireland, Spain, UK, Australia, Mexico and Singapore.; Ireland is one of the world's most foreign direct investment (FDI) dependent economies. This research project addresses patterns of influence and control in multinational companies (MNCs) in Ireland, with particular emphasis on policy and practice in the areas of human resource management (HRM) and employment relations (ER). It seeks to establish the degree of influence and the extent of discretion of the Irish operations within the overall corporate framework of multinational corporations (MNCs). Are managers in these foreign-controlled MNCs simply executors of HR and ER strategies conceived and created at higher levels, or do they play a more strategic role, with autonomy to adjust HR and ER strategies and policies to the local context, and to change and develop the mandates for their firms beyond those initially envisaged at corporate level? It also, uniquely...

non-peer-reviewed; In the context of burgeoning research on multinational corporations (MNCs) this paper addresses the issue of the representativeness of databases of multinational corporations (MNCs) in Ireland. It identifies some important deficiencies in existing databases much used by scholars in the field. Drawing on the international literature, it finds that this problem also characterises research on MNCs in many other countries. In the Irish context we find that the extant empirical research has generally excluded two key categories of MNCs, namely, (a) foreign MNCs which are not grant-aided by the main industrial promotions agencies and (b) Irish-owned MNCs. The paper outlines our experience in identifying and addressing these deficiencies in an effort to more precisely define the MNC population in Ireland, and more generally reviews some of the issues and obstacles confronting scholars investigating the MNC sector in Ireland and abroad.

Este artigo discute o processo de transferência de conhecimento da matriz para as subsidiárias praticado por multinacionais tradicionais (países da tríade composta por Europa, Estados Unidos e Japão) e emergentes (país de origem Brasil). O objetivo é comparar os mecanismos de transferência de conhecimento praticados por esses dois grupos. O método de pesquisa é quantitativo, por meio de duas survey, uma com 101 multinacionais tradicionais instaladas no Brasil, e outra com 65 subsidiárias de multinacionais brasileiras. Os resultados mostram que o mecanismo de maior destaque, utilizado por multinacionais tradicionais, para transferir o conhecimento da matriz para as subsidiárias são as best practices (melhores práticas), enquanto para as multinacionais emergentes são os expatriados. Como contribuição, este estudo preenche uma lacuna relacionada com estudos acerca da transferência de conhecimento em multinacionais emergentes.; This article discusses the processes of knowledge transfer from headquarters to subsidiaries practiced by traditional multinationals (triad countries composed of Europe, the USA and Japan) and emerging corporations (country of origin Brazil).

Cleaner Production (CP) represents the change from a conventional end-of-pipe treatment attitude to a proactive approach to pollution prevention and increased production efficiency. CP has been successfully implemented in developing countries, including the countries of the Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN). ASEAN is becoming an economic development center in Asia, attracting a large amount of foreign direct investments from multinational corporations during the last two decades. However, success in economic development has been accompanied by environmental problems. Understanding the level of CP practices among ASEAN's multinational corporations (MNCs) and National Cleaner Production Centers/Cleaner Production (NCPCs/CP) organizations is important to their development and for the environmental protection strategy of the region. This graduate thesis is developed with the aim of determining (1) MNCs' effectiveness in adopting and implementing CP practices within the ASEAN region, (2) the interaction of regional CP centers with MNCs, and (3) knowledge gained through MNCs' CP practices and information dissemination among local industries. Four surveys were developed to collect information from: MNCs operating within the ASEAN region; NCPCs/CP organizations; United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) /United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO); and Stakeholders (in the U.S. and Southeast Asia). Findings of the thesis include: 1. With its worldwide influence on CP practices...

Using firm-level data, we document two new facts regarding intrafirm trade and the activities of the foreign affiliates of U.S. multinational corporations. First, intrafirm trade is concentrated among a small number of large affiliates within large multinational corporations; the median affiliate ships nothing to the rest of the corporation. Second, we find that the input-output coefficient linking the parent’s and affiliate’s industries of operation—a characteristic commonly associated with production fragmentation— is not related to a corresponding intrafirm flow of goods.
