Configurations of Alliance Governance Systems
AbstractUsing the configurational approach, I synthesize alliance governance research by interpreting alliance governance systems as organizational form. I identify and analyze a set of design and contingency parameters and their interrelationships resulting in five configurations of alliance governance systems. These configurations are valuable for scholars in that they deepen our understanding of alliances along organization theoretical dimensions and expand the organization design literature to the field of interfirm alliances. For management practice, these configurations are valuable in that they can serve as diagnostic tools for alliance design.
