Dark Side of Headquarters Decision Making: Why Headquarters Do Not Add Value to their Subsidiaries
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Business Studies.
2017 (English)In: Academy of Management Proceedings, ISSN 1543-8643Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The headquarters’ value adding role entails making strategic and deliberate decisions in order to extract value from and for the MNC. However, the same decisions may result in different value effects on different units. Still, we know little of the reasons for this. Thus, in this paper we explore the value effects of headquarters decision making on subsidiaries and analyze why different effects emerge at different units. We focus on the subsidiary’s perspective in order to highlight the implications that headquarters decision making can have on the receiving end, allowing us to elaborate on situations where decisions can add value to the MNC simultaneously as they subtract value from individual subsidiaries.
