International Journal of Intelligent Enterprise (IJIE), Vol. 4, No. 3, 2017


Abstract: The objective of this study is to identify and analyse the alliances between small and medium-sized enterprises for internationalisation purposes pointing out how knowledge and information are managed. An agreement between a Colombian and a Spanish enterprise focused on an innovative water purification system will be analysed. A case study, based in semi-structured interviews, was used as the methodology for this project. Results show that the enterprises will work better within the alliance once they have protected their resources, especially their knowledge and information and when there is transparency about achieving their goals.
