A framework is presented to characterize four different ways in whic management control is partitioned between a multinational enterprise (MNE) and local partners within international joint ventures (JVs): split contro management, shared management, MNE-partner-dominant management and local-partner-dominant management. The framework was tested using sample of international jVs in Korea. We found that JVs following the spli control management performed better than any other approach. No performance differences were found among the remaining three types of management control. This suggests that MNEs and local partners should split control: that is, choose the activities to control so that those chosen activitie can be matched with their respective firm-specific advantages.
