Description - The Changing Boundaries of the Firm by Massimo G. Colombo

This book offers a distinctive analysis of the relations and interplay between the internal activities of firms, their changing boundaries, and increasing reliance on networks and alliances with other firms. The volume is the result of works conducted in connection with the research programme of the European Science Foundation on 'European Management and Organisation in Transition', devoted to the analysis of changing forms of economic organisation in Europe. The contributors offer a blend of theoretical and empirical studies; they are based on a set of related perspectives in modern economics, including transaction cost economics, competence and resource-based theories of the firm, evolutionary economics, and theories of foreign direct investments and the multinational enterprise. The unifying concern shared by the different studies is the need to model firm behaviour and interim co-operative activities in terms of knowledge growth and competence building rather than merely in terms of cost reduction; they emphasise learning processes and dynamic efficiency rather than efficient allocation of given resources.
