abstract

  • Measures of relatedness were used to assess (1) the degree to which diversified firms utilize joint ventures, (2) the nature of the relatedness in firms that joint venture, and (3) the performance and relevance of risk. For firms that joint venture in related business areas, the results suggest the importance of the risk of failure to reach their target goals and the fact that joint venturing is not perceived as reducing risk for the parent firms. © 1991 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
