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...

We investigate the effect of changing national institutions on relocations of intermediary HQs. Using a dataset of 154 cross-border relocations between the period from 2000 to 2015, we draw on the intermediary HQ's middle position within the MNC and investigate how a decrease in institutional quality in the HQ's host country and a change in institutional distance between different MNC units affect the relocation decision. 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...

In this study, we deal with the recent phenomenon of headquarters (HQ) relocations and shed light on which factors make multinational corporations (MNCs) relocate their HQs to Austria or from Austria to another country. We draw on a hand-collected dataset of 65 HQ relocations between 2000 and 2017. We find that while HQs in general and divisional HQs in particular have become more mobile over time, Austria still remains an important hub for HQs, as it seems to benefit from more inbound than outb...
