3 American Journal of Sociology Kristensen and Zeitlin find that behavior on the ground is a compromise among local practices, innovations found at horizontal plants, and directives coming from above. What they do not seem to find is that the business units benefit much from what headquarters does. On the consolidation process, multinational acquisitions involve the strategies of a big fish, but also the strategies of the smaller fish who are looking to be devoured on the best terms possible.

national Corporation. By Peer Hull Kristensen and Jonathan Zeitlin. Ox-. ford: Oxford University Press, 2005. It is hard to imagine a better team to study the multinational than Peer. Hull Kristensen and Jonathan Zeitlin. Even so, the task they set out is. ambitious, perhaps pathologically so. They set out to understand a single. multinational from the perspective of its British headquarters and work. units in Denmark, the United States, and England. Their idea was to try. to understand the history of each establishment, what it meant for each. to come under the organizational umbrella, and how each operated at the. site, in the local economy, and within the multinational.

What does globalization mean for the modern corporation? There is a lot of theory out there. Many have taken the intrepid step of speculating about the implications for the firm. Few have gone to the trouble to look into the matter

What does globalization mean for the modern corporation? There is a lot of theory out there. Few have gone to the trouble to look into the matter. Looking at how a multinational actually operates is not for the faint of heart. In practice, the modern multinational involves thousands of different stories about a hydra-headed monstrosity. Taking on a task like this could make one yearn for the time when studying an organization meant copying the organization chart.

What happens when previously autonomous firms from different countries, each with their own identities, routines and capabilities, come together inside a single multinational corporation? Can a cooperative strategy be established that advances the development of the multinational as a whole, or do mutual misunderstandings and the unintended consequences of strategic interaction among the players' lead instead to endemic conflict and disintegration? This book tackles these novel and important questions through an empirical study of the strategic constitution of an 'actually existing' multinational. It does so by tracing the historical construction of the multinational corporation from the confluence of multiple formerly independent firms and analyzing the interacting web of strategies pursued by different actors within it. The analysis reveals how workers, unionists, subsidiary managers, and corporate executives pursue separate strategic games rooted in their local contexts, whose global outcome contrasts sharply with idealized views of the multinational as an integrated and coordinated organization. By comparing these findings to those of the broader literature, the book proceeds to a theoretical examination of the challenges of managing the multinational, and the difficulties of resolving them through conventional organizational means. The authors propose new procedural solutions aimed at fostering mutual recognition and knowledge exchange within the multinational corporation, and explore how a multinational public may be created to press for the necessary reforms in corporate governance. As the success of such reforms is far from preordained, the book concludes with a series of alternative scenarios that illustrate the many obstacles to a smooth continuation of the globalization process. This is an important and original study of significance for researchers, academics, and advanced students of international business, business strategy, comparative management and organizational studies.
