ABSTRACT
In light of the increasing popularity of strategic alliances, the resource-based view is revisited and extended in order to allow for the consideration of alliance partner resources in evaluating the competitive advantage of interconnected firms. The proposed model distinguishes shared resources from non-shared resources and identifies four types of rents: (a) internal rents, (b) appropriated relational rents, (c) inbound spillover rents and (d) outbound spillover rents. The model illustrates how firm-specific, relation-specific, and partner-specific factors determine the contribution of partner resources to the rent streams that a firm can extract from its ego-network of alliances.
