Building legitimacy within a Scandinavian MNC: An analysis of the factors that influence sustainable strategic sourcing decisions
2011 (English)In: Strategic Direction, ISSN 0258-0543, E-ISSN 1758-8588, Vol. 27, no 8, p. 22-24Article in journal (Refereed) [Artistic work] Published
Abstract [en]

Purpose – Reviews the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoints practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.Findings – Emerging country markets, such as those of Brazil, Russia, India and China (the BRIC countries), have become increasingly important sourcing destinations for multinational corporations (MNCs). Furthermore, there is an increasing focus among sourcing clients on corporate social responsibility (CSR) issues. This seems to be a consequence of being “globally connected,” which gives rise to political and global risks due to, for instance, child labor, indigenous peoples' rights, forestry, intellectual property, conservation of biodiversity, etc.

Practical implications – Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.

Social implications – Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that can have a broader social impact.

Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
