The Role of Partnerships and Alliances in the European Industrial Restructuring

  • Yves Doz

Abstract

The European economy is currently going through a fundamental transition; one characterized by a dramatic increase in international competitive demands. ‘1992’, the Japanese challenge, increasing economies of scale and scope (particularly in R&D, marketing, and distribution), faster technological and market changes, swifter competitor’s moves, and more demanding customers are all contributing to greater competitive pressures (Doz, 1990).
