Abstract :
Previous research on joint ventures using a transaction costs perspective has found an ex ante relationship between the contextual threats addressed by TCE and the presence of various mechanisms designed to cope with these threats. Our study extends this research by examining whether the adoption of such mechanisms impacts the subsequent success of these alliances. The results help to clarify the usefulness and limitations of these TCE-related constructs, while raising important considerations for future research.
