In the last two decades the literature concerning interorganizational relationships (IRs), particularly strategic alliances, joint ventures, and social network analysis, has exploded. There has been a growing interest in how learning occurs in these various forms of cooperative arrangements. The nascent literature concerning learning processes in IRs suggests that learning occurs on both micro and macro levels (e.g. Knight 2002). At the micro level of analysis, inter-personal links generally offer individuals the opportunity to share and learn skills that will improve their personal lives. At the macrolevel of analysis, IRs often provide a forum for professionals to share and receive knowledge which may result in improving their companies’ competitiveness and profitability. It is the latter level of analysis that this essay addresses, primarily focusing on the ways in which learning through IRs improves organizational life. IRs have the potential to add value to organizations in two ways: 1) they provide the possibility for firm innovation and enhancement, and 2) they also offer employees the chance to discuss current professional practices with others in related fields, which may enable employees to perform better their various tasks.
