Strategic Alliances

New for chapter 9: Strategic Alliances

As we cover each chapter, I’ll provide a list of concepts from each chapter to guide you in your search for news items.  Search for business news that relate to one of the chapter concepts.  For example, a concept discussed in chapter 1 is the strategic management process.  A news article that discusses new strategy a company is undertaking, and the reasons for it, might be good item for this discussion board. This chapter (chapter 9) is about Strategic Alliances.

Provide a summary of the news item (along with a reference to where you found it) and explain how it ties into the strategic management concept discussed in chapter 9.  I’m looking for well-thought out comments so plan on writing more to explain fully.

You can also comment on another classmates post (and I highly encourage this) but make sure you offer some new insights.

News items must be from reputable sources.  A list of some of my favorites (although not the only ones you can use) are in the Resources section.
