Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Cooperative Strategies

Track N

Date: Sunday, October 7, 2012


Time: 08:00 – 09:15

Interest Group Panel

Room: Club C

Session Chair:

  • Tina Dacin, Queen's University


Alliances and cooperation have been studied from various theoretical perspectives, anchored in economies, sociology, and psychology. These perspectives have informed strategy research on alliances, as evident, for instance, in the relational view. What are the fundamental assumptions of these disciplines? How have they shaped research on cooperative strategies? Can we integrate multiple perspectives when studying alliances? What are the remaining research gaps and directions that future research on cooperative strategies should take? A distinguished panel of scholars will discuss these questions, underscoring the influences of economics (Joanne Oxley), sociology (Ed Zajac) and psychology (Rajesh Kumar) and relating them to mainstream strategy research (Harbir Singh). The panel will offer guidance for developing theory on alliances as well as discuss the theoretical implications of cooperation.
