Abstract
Using a sample of 95 German firms, the study finds general support for the traditional fits of international strategy–structure theory. Employing an information-processing perspective, the study conceptually and empirically extends existing theory (1) to address strategy–structure fit for various types of matrix structure, and (2) by adding two new elements of international strategy to the existing international strategy–structure model: the level of international transfers and level of foreign R&D.
