Abstract
A typology of plants is developed, that describes the international plant configuration from a network perspective. Four clusters are identified, each with a distinct position in the network The clusters differ in the extent to which the plants share innovations with other plants, transfer managers to other plants, and communicate with managers in the other plants. It is shown that the distinct types of plants differ on some plant characteristics, such as the focus, the age, the autonomy, the level of investment and capabilities, and the performance of the plant.
