Co-operative Structures in Global Business
Communicating, Transferring Knowledge and Learning across the Corporate Frontier
Using a series of twelve historical case-studies that are based on extensive archival research, this book explains why firms succeed or fail in communicating or transferring knowledge and discovering new expertise. By analysing how workable trade-offs between opposing forces have been achieved in the past, this study provides a set of guidelines for executives who embark upon inter-firm projects.
'Overall, this is a most interesting and stimulating book, and one from which business historians will profit greatly - both for teaching purposes, and as a source of concepts and ideas to be used in future research.' - Business History
