讲座主要内容：While prior studies have examined the impact of strategic alliances on future collaborations, this research contributes to the alliance literature by studying the impact of alliances on partner competitions. Specifically, we integrate alliance learning and social network perspectives to examine, at the dyadic level, how increasing exploratory versus exploitative collaborations between alliance firms drive their competitions in product markets. We further investigate the moderating effects of firms’ embeddedness in alliance networks, namely their relational embeddedness (i.e., repeated interactions) and positional embeddedness (i.e., relative centrality). We examine our theory using a unique dataset that integrates information on alliances and competitive actions in the U.S. pharmaceutical industry over two decades (1981-2003).
