Abstract

The question of why some firms outperform their peers in managing strategic alliances has been and still is a topic that oc-cupies academics’ and practitioners’ minds alike. Based on prior research we argue that a firm’s alliance management capa-bility (AMC), alliance learning (AL) mechanisms and alliance management related organizational design (AMOD) choices constitute its alliance management function. We then constructed a theoretical research framework to facilitate an in-depth examination of the co-development of AMC, AL, and AMOD over time and in response to internal and external contextual factors. Based on the qualitative analysis of twelve case studies we were able to deduce first preliminary propositions, which show strong support of our co-evolution model.
