Abstract [en]

This paper contributes to the emerging literature on the subsidiary in its dual context (Achcaoucaou et al, 2014; Ciabuschi et al, 2014, Figuereido, 2012; Meyer et al., 2011; Mudambi and Swift, 2012). However, this paper departs from the above studies, which all take a rather static view of the dually embedded subsidiary. A dynamic co-evolutionary perspective is taken, by longitudinally tracking the guided coevolution of subsidiary role and local network’s knowledge stock. We subscribe more to the complementarity for balanced coevolution in both contexts (Ciabuschi et al., 2014) over the trade-off thesis in that reliance on one context for resources may limit access to resources in the other context (Gammelgaard and Pedersen, 2010).

We show how the subsidiary is both a catalyst and coordinator of resource and knowledge flow in a form of guided coevolution to ensure requisite variety and hence accentuate the importance of dual embeddedness in understanding subsidiary evolution.
