Sample text

From the late 1970s on, a group associated with the Harvard Business School (notably C. K. Prahalad, Yves Doz, and Christopher Bartlett) had been building a framework for analyzing the MNC that portrayed it as dealing with two sets of forces: those pulling it toward responsiveness to the demands of the various local environments in which it operated and those pulling it toward integrating its activities across borders and toward the standardization that facilitated such integration. Seeing MNCs as torn between local demands and pulls toward centralization was not novel: it was a view that had loomed large in discussions of the MNC since the 1960s.

In the cross-cultural management literature, more often than not such generalized cultural traits of two national cultural groups are used to construe what anthropologist Eric Wolf (1982: 34) has called a "two-billiard-ball" understanding of cultural interaction. Both national cultures are treated as monolithic entities (billiard balls) that either collide with each other, leading to unsuccessful ventures, or miss grazing each other, remaining intact in their original cultural forms. ) The negotiated culture perspective, on the other hand, sees national cultural traits that multinational organizational members bring to the venture as elements that over time can be recombined or modified through ongoing interactions among team members (Brannen, 1994b).

Gunnar Hedlund emphasized the move away from hierarchical control systems to heterarchical coordination systems—a major change in management structures and processes (Hedlund, 1986,1993a). Prahalad and Doz (Doz & Prahalad, 1984; Prahalad & Doz, 1987) discussed the need for a major redesign of administrative systems, from planning and budgeting to career management systems. And virtually all the writers on the "new" MNC, managers as well as academics, have strongly emphasized the centrality of HRM in the transformation processes: the need to redesign the processes by which managers are recruited, trained, evaluated, assigned, and promoted.
