Resource description

Although the pressures of global integration and local responsiveness have been discussed in the international business literature for more than a decade, empirical validation of these pressures has largely been ignored in this discussion. The authors' empirical work shows that representing these pressures as two independent and unidimensional constructs is imprecise and potentially misleading. Based on these findings, the authors suggest an alternative representation of the integration-responsiveness framework that better reflects the contemporary reality observed in multinational firms.
