Abstract: The complex nature of business motives to engage in cooperative agreements requires the formulation of analytical frameworks that can accommodate overlapping elements of various theoretical perspectives on strategic technical alliances. The relevant theoretical perspectives include several major conceptual orientations of strategic management such as the competitive force, strategic behaviour, resource-based view of the firm, strategic network, dynamic capabilities, and the strategic options perspective. An analytical framework is sketched out in this paper that incorporates the full life cycle of an alliance - formation, operation, dissolution. The alliance formation part of this framework is used to outline the international technological cooperation strategies of three large Taiwanese electronics firms.
