This is the best book I know of for understanding how to create and manage a successful strategic alliance.
There is so much redundant business literature out there on this subject that it is such a relief to finally have one good source.
The great thing about this book was that it forced me to think about how competitive strategy and analysis should be the driver of any well conceived strategic alliance.
I cannot think of another book that has so skillfully integrated these two highly related disciplines in such a practical way.
If anyone knows of anyother books or articles that these authors have written on this subject can you please let me know via email?

Global companies are increasingly linking up with other firms to achieve mutual corporate goals in areas such as research, production, sourcing and distribution. The alliances they create can sometimes be bafflingly complex, nothing less than a contract lawyer's dream. And companies that join in alliances to dominate a particular market in one area can be bitter rivals in another market or another region. Alliance issues include handling employees' competing priorities and sharing proprietary information, such as vital research, among market adversaries. While "strategic alliances" can provide numerous attractive benefits, business professors Michael Y. Yoshino and U. Srinivasa Rangan offer best practices you can use to navigate the many obstacles that corporate marriages face. Although readers will find the book jargon-heavy and its references somewhat dated, getAbstract considers its well-documented counsel a good educational base in strategic alliances. In short, this book on alliances has earned the right to be called a management classic on this subject.

I bought this book to help me frame strategic deals when working in GE. Sincerally I found this book quite fluffy. The frames sketeched i think were quite obivious and the practical advices and hints almost not hexistent.
I can not recomend it. And I would have preferred to write a nicer review, and have been helped in my work...

There are so many literatures about strategic alliance for practitioner and academics. But few book are really useful for us. My message is just BUY IT. This is nothing but Great! You know what? This research was completed in 1995 and 5year has passed ...then still shining and definitely the mile stone of strategic alliance and cooperative strategy field, I believe. They begin with defining the notion of new types of alliances form 90s and make it clear how drastically the competitive situation changed and what the source of competitive advantage is. That's the entrepreneurial role of top managemant and alliance manager. Competitive advantage of alliancing corporation doesn't come from poor analysis of resources, invisible assets or core competence. The point is relationship between partners. And the greatest point of this book is not only pointing out the importance of "relationship management" of alliance but also ...wow that's enough.. Just BUY IT!
