This paper reports the results of an empirical study that examines the influence of environment complexity and levels of IS resources on the IS strategy and structure developed for subsidiaries of multinational corporations. Results suggest that, while the levels of subsidiary IS resources clearly influence the IS strategy and structure for the subsidiary, the levels of environment complexity faced by the subsidiary do not. .Results also suggest that IS structural mechanisms are not associated with the IS technology and activities in place at the subsidiary
