RQ: To what extent do historical conflicts impact the evolution and strategic decision-making of U.S.-based multinational corporations?

Started Sept. 9, 2023

Abstract or project description

Abstract: This research explores the intricate relationship between historical conflicts and the evolution of U.S.-based multinational corporations (MNCs), investigating the profound impact of past geopolitical, economic, and social upheavals on strategic decision-making processes. Employing a primarily social, historical, and financial approach, the study delves into documented instances of conflict, ranging from global wars to regional disputes, to discern their lasting imprint on the behavior and trajectory of American MNCs. Through an extensive review of case studies and empirical analyses, the research aims to ascertain the depth and breadth of influence that historical conflicts exert on the strategic landscape of these corporations.

The research methodology comprehensively examines corporate archives, government documents, and scholarly literature. By adopting a longitudinal perspective, the study traces the evolution of U.S. MNCs from pivotal historical junctures to the contemporary business landscape. Key thematic areas include the adaptation of corporate structures, shifts in market priorities, and altering risk assessment and management strategies in response to historical conflicts.

The findings of this research are anticipated to contribute to a nuanced understanding of the enduring impact of historical conflicts on the decision-making processes of U.S. MNCs. Such insights are crucial for academia and practitioners, offering strategic foresight to corporate leaders navigating an ever-changing global environment. Ultimately, this study aims to illuminate the intricate interplay between historical legacies and the adaptive strategies employed by U.S. MNCs, thereby enhancing our comprehension of the complex dynamics shaping the corporate world in the 21st century.
