Authors

Building on Hinings and Greenwood’s (1988) concept for the explanation of strategic change processes, this paper examines the organizational transformations in the internationalization process of Deutsche Treuhand-Gesellschaft. We identify three archetypes of the international organization of DTG/KPMG, which developed from a correspondent network via an international federal network organization to become a global advisory firm, undergoing various stages of transition, de-coupling and reorientation. Our analysis (a) provides an in-depth understanding of the longitudinal and contextual character of internationalization as a strategic change process of one of the most prominent international accounting firms with a European origin and (b) contributes to a rapprochement of strategic change and internationalization literatures.
