The International Joint Venture remains the primary vehicle by which multi-national corporations expand globally. However, despite the current academic and practical interest in IJVs, our understanding of the various strategies behind their formation and management has, until now, been incomplete. International Joint Ventures is the first book-length treatment to address theories, practical lessons, and the full set of critical issues that affect IJVs: culture, human resources, learning, legal, management, and research and development. This book fills a gap in the literature by presenting a full set of decisions and providing guidelines for IJV formation and management. It also thoroughly analyzes 30 case-studies that will benefit students, scholars, and business people alike.
