Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to analyse how the behaviour of multinational enterprises’ (MNEs’) overseas operations, in their efforts to adapt to local environmental changes, is affected by such firm-specific characteristics as firm size and organizational capability. Our empirical case study focuses on the overseas production operations of two Japanese automobile MNEs, Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (Mitsubishi Motors) in both Thailand and Australia.
