Post‐Formation Processes in Eastern and Western European Joint Ventures


  • Keith D. Brouthers
  • Gary J. Bamossy


abstract This study examines the post‐formation processes that firms use to create successful international joint ventures (IJVs). Scholars have suggested that IJV performance is dependent on the post‐formation processes firms institute to overcome barriers to success created by differences in national culture, trust, ownership positions and control mechanisms. Based on a longitudinal study of eight eastern/western European IJVs, our study provides insights into these post‐formation processes, how these processes relate to each other, and how they relate to managers’ evaluations of IJV success.
