Learning Through Joint Ventures: A Framework Of Knowledge Acquisition

Andrew C. Inkpen

Journal of Management Studies, 2000, vol. 37, issue 7, 1019-1044

Abstract: Joint ventures (JVs) are becoming an increasingly important organizational form in international business. When JVs are formed, valuable learning opportunities may be created for the venture partners. The primary objective in this paper is to explore the conditions under which firms exploit JV learning opportunities through the acquisition of knowledge. A framework of knowledge acquisition by JV partner firms is proposed. Using JV partner organizations as the primary level of analysis, the paper identifies various factors that influence the acquisition of learning, its value to the learning organization, and the migration of knowledge from the JV to the parent. Two firm specific learning‐based concepts are developed: alliance knowledge accessibility and knowledge acquisition effectiveness.
