Product Description: Cooperative Strategy Competing Successfully through Strategic Alliances Pierre Dussauge and Bernard Garrette HEC-School of Management, France In recent years, such corporate giants as Boeing, Toyota, Nestl#65533;, Philips, United Airlines, IBM, and Intel have increasingly turned to alliances in order to develop new products and technologies, enter new markets, and globalize their activities. Indeed, no one firm, however dominant, can beat the competition entirely on its own. Unfortunately, managers have found collaboration to be a difficult, and sometimes dangerous, strategy; they have often over-estimated the benefits of alliances while overlooking their pitfalls which only materialize over time. C.K. Prahalad notes in the foreword that "managers need a robust framework for navigating through these uncharted waters" and that "this book provides an invaluable source of ideas and practical guidance in their search". As the dynamics of the business landscape change and alliances become an increasingly used competitive weapon, Cooperative Strategy will enable managers to plan, implement and make the best use of strategic alliances. "This book significantly advances the literature on strategic alliances. The case studies are fresh and the insights they provide are powerful. This book is a must read for both managers and academics interested in cooperative strategies." Nitin Nohria, Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School "This book provides an excellent guide to the new skills needed in an environment where more and more managers must learn to collaborate in order to enhance the competitive position of their company. No-one can become a global leader alone." John M. Stopford, Professor of International Business, London Business School "The framework developed by Pierre Dussauge and Bernard Garrette provides new and valuable insights on the strategic and managerial issues raised by alliances, in particular when these alliances bring together companies that compete in the same industries. Indeed, getting former competitors to collaborate efficiently is a difficult endeavour; this book offers managers guidelines that will make this challenge less daunting." Jean-Luc Lagard#65533;re, CEO, Matra-Hachette "This excellent book provides insightful clarity on the various types of alliances and successfully explores the issues, pitfalls and traps which ensnare the misinformed. The examples are rich and the perspective truly global. In particular, it disentangles the more creative forms of 'co-opetition' between rival firms, and lays out the longer term outcomes of alliances. It is pragmatic and practical, bristling with concrete suggestions on how to make alliances successful." Bruce Simpson, Principal, McKinsey&Company

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
