Product description

Synopsis

Written by a multicultural team of authors, this text examines the major forms of international partnerships from their inception to their conclusion. The book follows a coherent sequence of steps, from strategic decisions to enter into a partnership, to partner selection, negotiations, the formation of the partnership, management issues and through to the final outcome, in order to better understand the issues and concerns facing parties involved in international strategic alliances and joint ventures. The contributors have lived and worked in the United States, Israel, Iran, Iceland, the United Kingdom and France, and conducted research in Asia, Europe and the United States, making the book itself a product of an international joint venture. The perspective allowed by their varied work experiences and cultural heritage provides insights into international strategic alliances and joint ventures in many different settings and contexts.
