Description - Handbook of Strategic Alliances by Oded Shenkar

The Handbook of Strategic Alliances covers the state of art of research on strategic alliances and serves to lay out a research agenda on collaborative strategy and alliance management. Leading scholars in the field chart the alliance literature, its evolution, current state, and future course. The handbook covers the theoretical foundations that guide work on inter-firm collaboration, ranging from sociological perspectives to real options theory to diverse traditions within organizational economics. It proceeds to open the "black boxes" of alliance management across the life-cycle phases as well as functional spectrum, addressing topics such as contracting, design choices, and interorganizational trust, as well as the neglected areas of organization behavior and human resource management. An in-depth look at cross-border alliances is then followed by an examination of new alliance forms in the new economy, entrepreneurial networks, and collaborations between for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. The handbook concludes by examining methodological issues and addresses the prospect for interdisciplinary research.
