There has been extensive research into multinational organizational strategy and structure, headquarters (HQ) control of subsidiaries and expatriation in profit-driven organizations. This pilot case study attempts to address these issues in non-profit organizations. Semi-structured interviews are used to examine organizational strategy, structure and control in a non-governmental organization (NGO). The role of expatriates and expatriate relationships with other organizational and contextual stakeholders are also investigated. The findings show that HQ's ideology, politics, strategy and structure have significant impact on the strategy formulation and implementation at the subsidiary. In addition, expatriate ideology and intrinsic motivations contribute greatly to successful expatriation outcomes.
