Abstract

As has been shown in the preceding Chapters, MNCs are characterised by internationally dispersed activities. To integrate all of an MNC’s activities and organisational units under a common strategy, coordination is necessary. This Chapter is an overview of different coordination mechanisms, including the strengths and shortcomings of each mechanism.
