Abstract

This study analyzes the structure of regional and global alliance networks of multinationals. It examines the network structure of 172 Triad (U.S., Western European, and Japanese) multinationals during 2001-2003 and how it affects subsequent corporate performance during 2004-2006. We study a framework of regional/global strategies based on the social networks view of relational ties among firms. Thus, we offer a new perspective to the growing literatures on the regional/global strategies and internationalization of alliance networks.

Keywords: Regional/global strategies, structure of international alliance networks, social networks theory
