Resource description

Technology alliances have emerged in the past decade as a significant mode of innovation development. The present research assesses: (1) factors explaining whether firms will engage in technology alliances or utilize the more traditional mode of internal RandD and (2) the market success rate of innovation development depending on the mode selected.

Firms which pursued a technology alliance in line with the model's predictions achieved higher market success rates
