How can MNEs improve the orchestration of resources and operations at the local, regional and global level in an increasingly complex environment? In this track we welcome contributions on the implementation of MNCs global strategies and coordination of activities across regions, in order to explore knowledge from different sources and exploit it all over the international corporation. Relevant topics may include, but are not limited to, MNEs organization, location strategy and cooperation with internal and external parties, including international alliances, outsourcing and offshoring decisions; governance modes, headquarters-subsidiary relationships, global coordination mechanisms and management of organizational change, as well as the creation and transfer of organizational capabilities across units, sustaining value added activities. We encourage the submission of both conceptual and empirical papers, quantitative or qualitative, helping to understand these processes in the contemporary MNE.
