We conceptualize alliance adaptation as a bundle of governance-based change practices in ongoing alliances, including contractual alterations, ownership change, board change, monitoring mechanism change, and key personnel turnover. Leveraging a transaction cost perspective, we investigate how changing environmental conditions (i.e., demand uncertainty and technological uncertainty) and unpredictable partner actions (i.e., behavioral uncertainty) trigger ex post governance adaptations in alliance...

Given the increasing importance of alliances, scholars have devoted much attention to understand how governance mechanisms explain alliance outcomes. Drawing on a detailed longitudinal case study of a revelatory strategic alliance in the veterinary drug industry, we revisit existing typologies of alliance governance mechanisms as discussed in current literature. Our findings suggest the relevance to develop a new typology of governance mechanisms combining the formal vs. informal and the contrac...

Context matters in the global strategy literature. We discuss how Africa, as a setting that received limited attention in the past, offers opportunity to challenge existing theory, and develop new insights. The overall goal is to ask: What will the field of global strategic management look like once we have engaged with Africa in a similar manner as we have done with other emerging economies? We also introduce the papers published in this special issue and highlight directions for future researc...

Taking a temporal view of learning in partnerships, we argue that learning to contract from prior relationships can be manifested not only in an increase in the level of contractual detail but also in a decrease in negotiation time for a given level of contractual detail. We analyse the influence that the length of prior relationships and the detail of termination provisions have on negotiation time, or the time period that it takes for partners to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. We find ...
