Article
Full-text available
We investigate the relationship between firm performance and patterns of exploration and exploitation dynamics under conditions of environmental turbulence. Adopting a contingency perspective, we develop arguments on how environmental turbulence moderates the effects of the simultaneous or sequential engagement in exploration and exploitation. Base...
Article
Full-text available
Management research has alluded to organizational and environmental conditions that drive firms’ tendencies to explore versus exploit. We complement this research by developing theory on vicarious learning to explain how a firm adjusts its own exploration level based on the exploration levels of its alliance partners and competitors. Using panel da...
Article
Full-text available
This paper assesses the impact on firm innovation of combining alliance-specific and partner-specific attributes within a firm’s alliance portfolio. In a panel data analysis of the innovation performance of 119 firms operating in the pharmaceutical industry during 1985–2007, we test whether firm’s alliance portfolio displays complementarities acros...
Article
Full-text available
In the past few decades, we have seen strong growth in the number of publications on the role of alliances and networking on innovative performance and, more generally, firm performance. The empirical results of these studies are, however, often debated, and there seems to be little consensus in the academic literature. We therefore focus our meta-...
Chapter
This chapter investigates how small-and medium-sized enterprises and large firms decide the sourcing strategies to explore and exploit. This study adopts a qualitative methodology and reports on the insights derived from interviews with 35 companies and 2 experts. A series of propositions are derived, and these propositions are used to propose a he...

Article
This chapter provides a systematic overview of the findings in prior academic studies related to the relationship between R&D collaboration and innovative performance. The analysis of 66 paper contributions in the last decade indicates that R&D cooperation is, more often than not, beneficial for innovative performance. The findings however differ d...
Article
Building on organizational learning theory, this study examines whether firms learn to manage alliance portfolio diversity. We argue that alliance portfolio diversity may be advantageous as well as disadvantageous for alliance portfolio performance. Subsequently, we theorize that the diversity‐performance relationship is moderated by the firm's all...
Article
Full-text available
The problem we address in this paper is that in projects focusing on public-private cooperation to stimulate innovation in the Netherlands, initiatives often lack continuation after the study-phase. We extracted possible influencing variables from business and (transaction) cost economic theorizing, stakeholder and capability theory. Moreover, we u...
Article
This paper investigates the effects of cooperation agreements as possible drivers of innovative performance for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). Drawing on the theoretical paradigm of 'open innovation' and on empirical evidence of the existence of a 'threshold to innovate', we analyse whether partnership agreements act as determinants for...
Article
Full-text available
Especially in complex technological contexts, companies engage in external relationships and use Business-to-business External Sources of Technology (BEST) in order to innovate. The way this relationship has to be organized (should it be a merger or an alliance?) is a critical strategic choice. Despite the relevance of the above decision, the topic...

Article
Full-text available
This article focuses on the problem: what external (stakeholder) and internal (structural/organizational) factors drive companies in the food- and agribusiness towards innovative environmental management? Innovative companies are those considered to have adopted a supply-chain perspective, instead of a focus on the single business unit. We propose...
Article
Full-text available
We investigate the effects of M&A on innovation in the specific context of potential or realized market dominance. Authorities are challenged by balancing both detrimental and beneficial effects of mergers on innovation, especially when a merger threatens to result in market dominance, while firms would wish to uncover all the potential benefits ar...
Article
Full-text available
When companies decide to engage in technology transfer through exclusive licensing to other firms, they have two basic options: to use standard licensing contracts or to set-up more elaborate partnership-embedded licensing agreements. We find that broader partnership-embedded licensing agreements are preferred with higher levels of technological so...
Article
Changes in the world’s economies and discussions in the literature about the growing importance of innovation to firms have given rise to a demand for expanding the analysis of merger policy. The present study focuses on the different criteria used to assess the impact of M&A activities on innovation. The analysis is both theoretical and empirical....
