Internationalising a National Image

Peter Schulz

Made in Germany is often regarded to be a guarantor for quality and reliability and German companies have a global reputation for manufacturing products that are superior to products of companies with a non-German identity.
This thesis analyses the internationalisation process of the national image of Made in Germany with particular regard to Western Australia. The thesis starts with an assessment of recent developments in the global business environment before going on to highlight internationalisation strategies in general and the specific impact of culture on internationalisation. Subsequently, the paper focuses on the German context by presenting issues associated with the identity commonly attributed to Germans, including national identity, German culture, and German management styles and principles. An evaluation of the country-of-origin phenomenon, with a specific look at the case of Made in Germany, and an assessment of German companies in the international arena conclude the section on the German context. A further focus of the thesis is the connection between Germany and Australia, specifically the attractiveness of the Western Australian market and German business presence in Australia.
The method of research consists of two major parts: a theoretical framework and a empirical analysis. The theoretical framework is based on a study of literature and provides the foundation necessary for the empirical analysis. The empirical analysis consists of the collection of primary data by means of a questionnaire and the statistical interpretation thereof. The questionnaire was specifically compiled for this thesis.
Findings of the paper include that Made in Germany is generally considered to be a competitive advantage over companies with a non-German national identity. Both the theoretical framework and the empirical analysis indicate that the national image of Germany and its accompanying positive reputation has been introduced successfully to Western Australia, although German companies operating within Australia seem to adopt a Be German, Act Australian approach. A German dominance prevails in the ownership of the organisation while nationality of staff, in-house business culture and management styles and principles are predominantly non-German/Australian. Respondents thus act and are global and local at the same time.

In the formation of national images, however, it must be emphasized that impres-sions of nationality are formed mostly in childhood and usually in the family group. It would be quite fallacious to think of the images as being cleverly imposed on the mass by the powerful. If anything, reverse is the case: the image is essentially a mass image, or
