Chandler, 1990). On the other hand, Germany, together with France, is singled out by Fligstein (1990) as particularly unlikely to be amenable to the ‘finance conception of control’ embodied in the multidivisional. These countries have different kinds of managerial resources available for running their firms. In Germany and France, technical backgrounds and skills are more prevalent among senior managers. In the United Kingdom, accounting and finance skills dominate, both of which are well suited to the remote management style of the multidivisional (Lane, 1995; Whittington and Mayer, 2000).

2 Global Change Management Approaches in MNCs and Distinct National Trajectories: Britain and Germany Compared Mike Geppert, Dirk Matten and Karen Williams Introduction The discourse on globalization has been a field of research in international business for quite some time. Within the large body of literature there seems to be a rather strong, if not dominating, school of thought, which argues that globalization will ultimately result in the worldwide convergence of organizational patterns. There is talk of the ‘stateless’ enterprise (Parker, 1998) and the ‘transnational’ organization (Bartlett and Ghoshal, 1989), to name just two examples.

The multidivisional was still in a clear minority in France and Germany; only in Britain had it achieved equal numbers to the United States, and even this had been achieved in a great rush over a single decade, leaving doubts about its substance in practice. In our research, we are now in a position to check how the multidivisional has fared since the collapse of the American mystique and beyond the borders of Anglo-Saxon rationality. 3 indicates, the multidivisional has done rather well. Our measures of strategy also indicate parallel movements towards similar levels of diversification over the same period, although French companies are marginally the least diversified on average (Mayer and Whittington, 1999).
