Mistakes in the chosen ‘in-house’ strategies can be fatal. The suggested five-step process for selecting suitable strategies among the mentioned ones in the taxonomy can be a useful tool to assist managers in adopting the right strategies. 6 Conclusions While there have been some attempts by operations researchers to suggest new manufacturing strategies or even typologies of operations strategies, especially in the 1990s, there is a gap in the current literature regarding a relatively comprehensive taxonomy for international manufacturing strategies.

Due to an overly rational view of strategic processes, a company with an appropriate strategy in terms of content and process is well positioned for success, but in truth operational decisions are made with such great frequency by such a large number of individuals within an organization that there is often a high-degree of misalignment (Boyer et al. 2005). The international manufacturing strategy is considered as a mechanical process in which managers with extensive rationality seek to make appropriate linkages between strategy, structure, and performance (Boyer et al.
