Breadth of coordination mechanisms: Research on coordination mechanisms between headquarters and subsidiaries has often been very narrow. 61 Some methodological enhancements also help to differentiate our research from existing contributions: 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 See, for instance, Boddewyn et al. (1986), p. 54, Combs/Ketchen Jr. (1999), p. 871, Rugman/Girod (2003), p. 24. Garnier (1982), p. 897. Collis (1994), p. 145. The author explicitly distinguishes products and services (Collis (1994), p.

441, Harzing (1999), p. 309, Madureira (2004). Ramamurti (2004), p. 281. Doz/Prahalad (1984), p. 71. Doz/Prahalad (1984), p. 71. 8 1 – Introduction Theory building: The work aims at building a theoretic framework for service offshoring subsidiaries in the form of a subsidiary typology. We have decided to develop a new typology rather than use an existing one. 44 Our typology shall serve to categorize and describe different existing and future service offshoring models. Several theories from economics and international business research can help to explain why the service offshoring trend is happening45 but no cohesive framework is available to answer our question how the management of service offshoring centers works.

In other cases, a very low degree of judgment on the part of the service personnel is involved (such as hotel services). We do not confine our analysis in this regard. Lovelock (1983), p. 12. See also Hill (1999) for a more detailed discussion of tangibility. Lovelock (1983), p. 13. This does not exclude the personal interaction during the visit between service provider and recipient. The distinguishing criteria is whether or not the service delivery requires personal contact. One could argue that there is an overlap between this dimension and the first – services carried out on people or things – but there are services that require personal contact but are not executed on people's bodies or minds (such as mail delivery).
