Abstract

(VF)Cet article étudie comment les multinationales combinent différents mécanismes afin de garder le contrôle sur leurs filiales en Chine. Nous avons conduit 22 entretiens en face-à-face, en Chine, avec des managers expatriés japonais (10) et français (12). Une analyse de contenu thématique fait émerger quatre dimensions de contrôle: la part de capital, l'expatriation, la formalisation de l'organisation et la formation des employés locaux. Les pratiques managériales dans chacune de ces dimensions de contrôle sont précisément développées. Les similitudes et différences dans les dispositifs de coordination et contrôle entre multinationales japonaises et françaises sont enfin comparées.(VA)This article investigates how multinational firms combine various control and coordination mechanisms to maintain control over their subsidiaries in China. We interviewed 22 expatriate managers in China who are in charge of 12 French and 10 Japanese subsidiaries. A content analysis reveals four main dimensions of control: the capital stake, expatriation, formalization of the organizational structure and training of local employees. We document managerial practice along the dimensions of control and compare the Japanese and the French systems of international control.
