Review of the Literature on Performance Evaluation of Foreign Subsidiaries

  • Katharina Kretschmer


The discussion of the conceptual background is followed by a review of the relevant literature. Thereby, the earlier publication Schmid/Kretschmer 2006b is extended in this chapter. Section 3.1 sets out the objectives of the chapter and summarizes the methodology of the literature review. The following two sections cover the relevant literature: Descriptive contributions are described in section 3.2, while explanatory studies are addressed in section 3.3. At the end of the chapter, the conclusions and implications of the literature review are summarized in section 3.4.
