Internationally operating companies are increasingly forced to adopt a global orientation in managing their businesses. Informational processes that are necessary to achieve this perspective are far more complex than so far conceived. Growing interdependences between world widely dispersed subsidiaries make the diagnosis of strategic issues a multipersonal and multidimensional process that increasingly cuts across intra-organizational boundaries. This article proposes a model of strategic information diagnosis that integrates existing literature on strategic issue diagnosis, organizational learning and global management.
