Abstract

This paper proposes that firms can set up corporate mechanisms which improve their ability to both learn and protect in their alliances. We argue that these mechanisms converge to create two distinct abilities, the firm’s corporate learning ability and its corporate protection ability in alliances. We test the model on a sample of 122 e-commerce alliances. We find support for the existence of the two abilities and for their significant on learning and leakage in alliances.
