In this way the HQ engineered a loss with double consequences. It first lowered current earnings and other performance benchmarks, which then contributed to a fall in the company’s share price, raising the cost of the capital needed to repair the damage. Our observations revealed many such vicious circles, casting doubt on the underlying economic efficiency and organizational effectiveness of the MNC, as well as on its broader capacity to serve as the lead agent of the globalization process. 2. The Construction of MNCs in the Current Globalization Debate In this book, we examine the constitution of the lead agents who are believed to be driving globalization.

Consequently, depending on which vision and strategy prevailed over the others, the MNC could have evolved in four very different directions. The separate tales recounted here immediately call into question any expectation that these firms’ distinctive pathways would be subordinated to that of the HQ merely as a consequence of joining the multinational association. In Part II of the book, we shall see how consistently these historical legacies continued to influence each player’s moves within the global game of the MNC.

Our fundamental point is that it is the unending process of mutually aligning these multiple narratives that constitutes the core challenge of coordination and ‘control’ for the MNC, and only to the extent that this process is effective will its global operations become successful. In Part II, we focus more closely on the process of mutually aligning such multiple narratives. We analyze this process as a reciprocal strategic game, which the actors have each learned to play in their own local and national context, adapting their strategic skills to deal with players coming from other parts of the world where different rules prevail.
