How will digitalization influence the role of corporate headquarters (CHQs) and their relationships with their operating units? We recently asked 67 senior CHQ managers this question. The results suggest that CHQs expect to become more powerful and more involved in their operating units. These conclusions seem to be driven by perceptions that the ongoing digitalization will provide CHQ managers with more timely and better information. In this “Point of View,” we discuss the potential pitfalls of...

However, headquarters involvement might not always be desired or needed, and it can thus be perceived as interference with local activities, potentially reducing local willingness to go the extra mile. We address the lack of knowledge about subsidiary manager behavior by answering the following question: How does headquarters involvement influe...

Our findings advance the emergent literature on HQ relocations as well as ...

In this report, we investigate how the digital transformation impacts headquarters (HQs). Drawing on 85 survey responses from corporate and divisional HQ managers in Austria, we find that the digital transformation is expected to fundamentally change the HQ of the future in terms of how the HQ will derive decisions, how it will interact with its subunits, and how the HQ will add value to the firm. The majority of firms see the digital transformation primarily as an opportunity to increase the va...

In this study, we investigate how managers perceive Austria as one of Europe's prime locations for divisional and corporate headquarters (HQ) and how this might change in the context of the ongoing digital transformation. Drawing on our quantitative survey results, we find that Austria as a HQ location will remain attractive and seems to be well prepared for the digital transformation. 74% of our respondents rate the technological infrastructure in Austria as positive. Similarly, the access to d...
