This network encompasses the set of alliances that industry participants have entered until the previous year. With the rapid proliferation of alliances in the last several decades, most firms are now embedded in a wider network of prior and current alliances. Most alliances involve prolonged contact between partners, and firms actively rely on such networks as conduits of valuable information that can act as a catalyst for new alliances. Such networks are dynamic, however, and can include all past alliances, whether active or not, at any given time.

To summarize, Part I of the book addresses the formation of interfirm alliances and proposes that the development of such alliances and the networks that result from their accumulation is the result of a dynamic process involving both exogenous resource dependencies that prompt organizations to seek cooperation and an evolving embeddedness dynamic, in which the shifting network of prior alliances progressively influences the likelihood of alliance formation and partner choice in each period by providing firms with access to information through their partners.

One manager I interviewed commented on the importance of experience in alliance formation: One thing that also makes it easier for us to enter new alliances is our extensive experience with doing alliances. Forming a new partnership is not a big deal any more—we have our own formula and we know it works! Some of the firms that I interviewed enhanced their alliance capabilities by setting up separate organizational units to assist with the creation and management of their strategic partnerships (Dyer, Kale, and Singh 2001).
