The study of alliance governance is a significant component needed for the analysis of economic organization and the execution and performance of alliances. This authoritative volume covers the most important research conducted on strategic alliances and their governance. The editors have selected seminal papers which consider a number of important issues, including when firms use alliances relative to other organizational forms (e.g., acquisitions), alternative types of alliances, and the most important governance arrangements for inter-firm collaborations. The collection also carefully examines the specific means by which firms design alliance contracts and other dimensions of alliance governance. This indispensable volume is particularly well suited for scholars and students in strategic management, international business, management, and economics.
