Overview

Inter-firm relations are not new. But fast developments in technology and globalization have led to increased opportunities for international alliances, and an upsurge in the interest in inter-organizational relations. With the time ripe for a unified theory of collaboration, Inter-firm Collaboration, Learning and Networks surveys the current field, connects differing perspectives and answers questions about who should collaborate, why, and how.

Emphasizing learning and innovation, this book offers an integrated account of the key issues in the design and management of inter-firm relations and networks. It takes a uniquely interdisciplinary approach, bringing together perspectives from economics, sociology and management to offer a new kind of book on this subject. Supporting theory, the book includes illustrative case examples taken from a variety of firm, network and industry types.

Coherent and wide-reaching, Inter-firm Collaboration, Learning and Networks provides students and academics in economics, business, sociology, social psychology and economic geography with the tools required to understand this topical and highly relevant subject.

    Stars, Explosions, and a So-Called Death Part 2

    As Neon Boom grew healthier, Celestia was almost 21. Neon Boom was almost 7, and she had enough strength to loosen a quiet "Woo hoo!" But, even though she seemed healthy, one day she lashed out. Celestia had thought her too weak and took the responsibility of the stars. <br>
    What she did, frankly, was fight for no apparent reason. She used all the magic she could. Her tail turned rainbow. Her mane turned black with a red streak. Her cutie mark was a neon rainbow explosion. Her hooves were strong and tall like boots, with rainbow neon shingles. Her teeth became longer and she could bite pretty hard with them. And she could remain this way any time she wanted to. No more responsibilities of the stars for her. Responsibilities of destruction. <br>
    Luna thought this over and over again, way too many times for an eleven-year-old. What if her sister WAS possessed? <p>
    Sorry it was short. I wanna rp.
