The managers of multinational companies are more rigorous and oriented towards consolidating and developing long-term performance than the managers of national firms, finds a survey conducted by the training and consulting company Result Development, quoted by Realitatea.net.
According to the survey, the managers of multinationals are more authoritarian and prefer excessive control, but they are also employee-minded and think more coherently than most leaders of national companies. “The leaders of national companies prefer an intuitive and inspirational management, strongly centered on experience, unlike the management of multinationals, which displays a more rigorous attitude and partly uses scientific management instruments,” said Dorin Bodea, Senior Consultant with Result Development. On the other hand, motivation is a drawback for the managers of both national and multinational companies. Here too, the managers of local companies are at a disadvantage, with 70 pc of them lacking motivational skills. Another conclusion of the survey is that the managers of multinationals are more coherent in their managerial thinking than most leaders of national companies.
