Instabilité des alliances stratégiques asymétriques : cas des relations entre les firmes multinationales et les entreprises locales agroalimentaires en Méditerranée

Abstract : Strategic alliances are experiencing a strong growth both in respect to organizational practices of firms and in terms of the interest carried by academic research in strategy. Many issues remain unsolved concerning the outcomes of strategic alliances (survival, longevity, performance, failures, instability) and the ambiguous role of size asymmetry between the partners. Our research aims to analyze the effects of asymmetric strategic alliance configuration and those of its evolutionary dynamics on main forms of instability. Our empirical application concerns strategic alliances between multinational firms and local food processing enterprises in the Mediterranean. A sample of 105 cases of unstable asymmetric strategic alliances has been formed from a collection of secondary data. Two other samples of primary data were obtained through surveys of multinational corporations and local food processing enterprises in the Mediterranean. Analysis by structural equation models through the PLS path modelling and PLS regression yielded three main results: the effects of configuration and dynamics of the relationship on its instability ; the links between motives and forms of instability, and some differences in the partners’ perceptions about their cooperative relation process and its performance. Our results join those obtained by global, multidimensional and dynamic analyzes of cooperative relations issues.
