Firm Strategies in Reaping Globalisation Gains

Our aim is to identify strategies that make firms successful in today’s globalised economy, addressing questions such as: How do exports, offshoring, FDI, and participation in global value chains affect the performance of firms? What hinders or helps the adoption and the success of internationalisation strategies? Which management practices make companies thrive? How do management practices affect the decisions about internationalisation strategies?
We conducted a large scale survey of German firms regarding their management practices and business performance. Details are available here.
