Decision-making autonomy of production plants in global production networks – Analysis of the interplay between strategy and decisions [in press]

Verhaelen, Bastian; Lanza, Gisela


An increasing number of companies operate multiple production plants in global production networks (GPN). These production plants operate with different levels of autonomy regarding strategic, tactical and operative decision-making. So far, there is small evidence on different patterns of decision-making autonomy in GPN and their inherent strategy. We conducted a survey to close this gap and obtained data from 88 GPN operating with headquarters mainly in Europe. This research identifies two different decision-making autonomy patterns. Furthermore, the impact of strategy on decision-making autonomy patterns is analysed. To conclude, the impact of decision-making autonomy patterns on performance is elaborated.
