ABSTRACT

Most inter-firm collaboration and strategic alliance literature focus on intra-industry collaborations, neglecting inter-industry collaborations. Considering these limitations, this paper aims to illuminate the importance of inter-industry collaboration by highlighting the critical difference between intra-industry and inter-industry collaboration. Then, two different types of inter-industry collaborations – brand collaboration and innovation collaboration – will be contrasted and compared using well-known successful collaboration examples. Finally, this paper proposes a third type of inter-industry collaboration, which involves both brand and innovation collaboration, and discusses its characteristics regarding resource combination and the uncertainty that partner firms perceive.
