This chapter explores networks and strategic alliances as a qualitative change accompanying globalization. It analyses the reasons for the growth in alliances — the databases complied by researchers to analyse them —and different approaches to studying alliances and networks (complementary assets, actornetwork theory, and transaction cost economics). A number of networks and alliances are examined (including US CRADAs, Benetton network, linkages between small and large firms in biotechnology, and the case of the Maastricht region).

Keywords:   globalization, organization, management, multinationals, Maastricht region
