Strategic alliances and models of collaboration
Todeva, E and Knoke, D Strategic alliances and models of collaboration Management Descision, 43 (1). 123 - 148.
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to engage in a comprehensive review of the research on strategic alliances in the last decade.
Design/methodology/approach – After presenting a typology of diverse alliance governance forms, reviews recent analyses of alliance formation, implementation management, and performance outcomes of collaborative activities.
Findings – Strategic alliances developed and propagated as formalized interorganizational relationships. These cooperative arrangements represent new organizational formation that seeks to achieve organizational objectives better through collaboration than through competition.
Practical implications – The paper provides future research directions on partner selection, networks patterns and processes, understanding the integration in alliances through fusion, fission, and how to manage developmental dynamics.
Originality/value – Concludes with some future directions for theory construction and empirical research.
