Abstract

This study provides a conceptual framework and typology to measure headquarter and subsidiary dependency on capabilities and resources. Using an in-depth longitudinal case study approach, it highlights a novel phenomenon called ‘reverse dependency’ where headquarters dependency on its subsidiary is rising. This is an emerging phenomenon, probably related to increased globalization and convergence of the world economy. The study offers implications about for theory of subsidiary entrepreneurship and location embeddedness.
