Abstract:The complexity and competitiveness of global business is increasingly being managed by international strategic alliances. As a result, the two central tenets of market-based-capitalism, that competitive market forces ensure optimum innovation-led growth and that individual firms can best accomplish this by competition rather than cooperation, are being re-examined. These tenets directed management in an elaborate process of alliances control, which is now giving way to a system of control based on trust. The economic model explaining the formation of alliances and the research on joint venture alliances are discussed. This is followed by a discussion of trust and a process-approach to trust development. Finally, a case methodology to examine evolving IJV relationships is proposed.
