No firm is an island. Decisions, actions, and outcomes of a firm are embedded in their relationships with suppliers, customers, competitors, downstream, and upstream firms. The formation and management of strategic alliances among firms within an interfirm network of firms inform awareness that a firm needs to develop a strategic stance explicitly of its contributions and the resulting outcomes of all participants within an interfirm network of firms.
