6.1.1. Traditional Innovation: Central and Local Models

6.1.1.1. Traditionally MNEs' innovative capabilities were dominated by one of two classic processes

6.1.1.2. Centre- for global innovation model: New opportunity was sensed in the home country

6.1.1.2.1. Centralized resources and capabilities of the parent company were brought in to create the new product or process, usually in the main R&D Centre

6.1.1.3. Local-for-local:

6.1.1.3.1. Risk:

6.1.1.3.2. Fit more easily into the multinational strategic model

6.1.1.3.3. Multinational companies are often masters at managing local innovations

6.1.1.3.4. To get rid of these problems this has been succesful

6.1.1.3.5. Most MNEs have tried to develop element of both models of innovation, but usually one dominates

6.1.2. Transnational Innovation: Locally leveraged, globally linked

6.1.2.1. The traditional models that shaped cross-border innovation have evolved into new processes: Transnational innovation models:

6.1.2.1.1. Locally leveraged innovation

6.1.2.1.2. Globally linked

6.1.3. Making Transnational processes feasible

6.1.3.1. Building a portfolio of innovative processes to drive worldwide learning requires that companies overcome two related but different problems:

6.1.3.1.1. Avoid various pitfalls associated with each process

6.1.3.1.2. Find ways to overcome the organizational contradictions among them as they try to manage all the sources of innovation simultaneously

6.1.3.2. The drive to reduce organizational and strategic complexity made these assumptions extremely widespread for MNEs

6.1.3.2.1. An often-implicit assumption

6.1.3.2.2. An concious/non consious assumption

6.1.3.2.3. Assumption

6.1.3.3. Companies that are most successful in developing transnational innovations challenge these assumptions

6.1.3.3.1. Systematically differentiate tasks and responsibilities

6.1.3.3.2. Build and manage interdependence among different unity of companies

6.1.3.3.3. Corporate managers search for complex mechanism to coordinate and coopt the differentiated and interdependent organizational units into sharing a vision of the company's strategic tasks.

6.1.4. From Symmetry to Differentiation

6.1.4.1. Product coordination groups formed at corporate centre and soon encompassed all businesses

6.1.4.1.1. Different businesses faced different demands for integration and responsiveness

6.1.5. From Dependence to Independence to Interdependence

6.1.5.1. The emerging strategic demands make organizational models based on such simple inter-unit dependence or independence inappropriate

6.1.5.1.1. They must build the interdependent relationships that re at the heart of the transnational, integrated-network organization

6.1.5.2. For an effective interdependent organization to exist

6.1.5.2.1. The company must develop the interdependent configuration of dispersed and specialized resources.

6.1.5.2.2. The innovative transnational organization must build inter unit integration mechanisms to ensure that task interdependencies lead to the benefits of synergy rather than paralysis of conflict

6.1.6. Form Simple control to Flexible coordination

6.1.6.1. The simplifying assumptions of organizational symmetry and dependence allowed the management porcesses in many companies to be dominated by simple controlls

6.1.6.2. Challenge assumptions

6.1.6.2.1. Found out that tehy also needed to adapt their management process

6.1.6.3. As MNEs began exploring transnational innovation opportunities simultaneously, they became more diverse and more interdependent

6.1.6.3.1. Explosion in the number of issues that had to be linked, reconciled and integrated

6.1.6.3.2. cost of coordinating are high, coordinating capabilities are always linked.

6.1.6.4. Three flows are the lifeblood of any organization

6.3. Reading 5-1: Building Effective R&D Capabilities Abroas

6.3.1. More and more companies in technologically intensive industries have abandoned the traditional approach to R&D, as this approach will no longer suffice. 2 Reasons

6.3.1.1. Companies competing around the world must move new products from development to market at an ever more rapid pace

6.3.1.1.1. Companies must build R&D networks that excel at tapping new centers of knowledge and at commercializing products in foreign markets with the speed required to remain competitive

6.3.2. Adopting a Global Approach to R&D

6.3.2.1. 1. Creating a technology steering committee: Build a team that will lead the initiative

6.3.2.1.1. Small teams of senior managers

6.3.2.1.2. Members include head of major existing R&D sites

6.3.2.2. 2. Categorizing new R&D Sites: R&D Sites have one of two objectives

6.3.2.3. 3. Choosing a location for the site

6.3.2.3.1. For home-base augmenting sites

6.3.2.3.2. For home-base-exploiting sites

6.3.3. Establishing a new R&D Facility

6.3.3.1. In both types of new facilities companies must use the same three-stage process

6.3.3.1.1. Selecting best laboratory leader:

6.3.3.1.2. Determining the optimal size for the new R&D Site:

6.3.3.1.3. Supervising the start-up period:

6.4. Reading 5-3: How to Collaborative Advantage

6.4.1. Multinational corporations could compete scucessfully by exploiting scale and scope economies

6.4.1.1. No longer profitable

6.4.2. Multinationals compete head-to-head with a handful of other giants

6.4.3. New economies of scope are based on the ability of business units, subsidiaries and functional departments within company to collaborate successfully by sharing knowledge and jointly developing new products and services

6.4.4. Value creation from Interunit collaboration

6.4.4.1. Interunit collaboration is difficult to achieve and understand

6.4.4.2. Not collaborate across units for collaboration's sake only

6.4.4.2.1. Reap economic benefits

6.4.4.3. Five major benefit categories

6.4.4.3.1. Cost savings through transfer of best practices

6.4.4.3.2. Better decision making as a result of advice obained from colleagues in other subsidiaries

6.4.4.3.3. Increased revenue through the sharing of expertise and products among subsidiaries

6.4.4.3.4. innovation through the combination and crosspollination of ideas

6.4.4.3.5. Enhanced capacity for collective actin that involves dispersed units

6.4.5. Four barriers to interunit collaboration

6.4.5.1. Companies often erect barriers that prevent individuals from engaging in collaborative activities that they might otherwise have undertaken

6.4.5.2. First task: Identify the barriers and their causes. 4 barriers

6.4.5.2.1. First barrier:

6.4.5.2.2. Second barrier

7.1.1.1. Building not only interdependent and integrated network organization but also collaborative relationships with other firms

7.1.1.1.1. Change in strategic perspective

7.1.2. Change in strategic perspective was triggered by:

7.1.2.1. Rising R&D Costs

7.1.2.2. Shortened Product life cycles

7.1.2.3. Growing barriers to market entry

7.1.2.4. Increasing needs for global-scale economies

7.1.2.5. Expanding importance of global standards

7.1.3. Response:

7.1.3.1. Many shifted their strategic focus away from an all-encompassing obsession with premating competition to a broader view of building competitive advantage through selective, often simultaneous reliance on both collaboration and competitions

7.1.4. Simultaneously consideratin of both value creation and value appropriation

7.1.4.1. Partnerships with customers

7.1.4.1.1. Leveraging their own competitiveness and innovative capabilities

7.1.5. Most visible manifestation of this growing role of collaboration strategies appears in the phenomena "strategic alliances"

7.1.5.1. Why Strategic Alliances?
