Abstract

This study investigates the structure of IS activities in U.S. and non-U.S. subsidiaries of transnational corporations. Specifically, activities in the areas of operations, systems development, and planning/control were examined to determine how responsibility for these activities was shared among the parent and subsidiaries. This research seeks to establish whether parent companies treat their U.S. and non-U.S. subsidiaries differently and, if so, in what manner. The Transnational Information System (TIS) model was developed to provide a framework for this study.
