1. Wu, Rui. Empirical essays on relationships between alliance experience and firm capability development.

Degree: PhD, Business Administration, 2010, University of Southern California

In the context of interfirm alliances, this dissertation analyzes partners’ alliance experience as a multi-dimensional construct, and examines the effects of experience dimensions on governance decisions and on market value creations. This dissertation focuses on the governance aspect of experience, or the extent to which a firm has managed focused or diverse alliance governance structures. A firm’s experience of prior alliances can be characterized by the depth in a specific governance form and the breadth of diverse governance forms. In-depth experience creates governing capabilities that are specific to a focal structure and result in exploitation of the same structure. Diverse governance experience broadens the range of alliance-related knowledge, and lead to better informed governance decisions by the creation of selection capabilities. In the first empirical essay, I examine a model that integrates both contractual hazards and experience-based capabilities to predict governance decisions. The second essay takes a further step by examining how the stock market responds to experience factors when evaluating events of new alliance formation. In a sample of alliances formed by US software companies, I find strong empirical evidence for the argument of multi-dimensional experience in affecting strategic decisions and value creations.

2. Heo, Jun. An Examination of Market Intelligence Gaps in the Advertising Industry and Their Effects on Agency-Client Relationships Media Planner's Perspective.

Degree: PhD, Mass Communication - Journalism and Communications, 2010, University of Florida

AN EXAMINATION OF MARKET INTELLIGENCE GAPS IN THE ADVERTISING INDUSTRY AND THEIR EFFECTS ON AGENCY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS: MEDIA PLANNER?S PERSPECTIVE As the landscape of the media industry rapidly changed, needs for advertising media planners to understand the market place has increased. Failing to understand marketer?s needs may influence overall performance of the advertising agency and in turn terminate the agency-client relationship. The purpose of this online survey of U.S. advertising media planners was to determine the effects of market information sharing on the quality of relationships between clients and media planners. The quality of client-media planner relationships was defined from the media planner?s perspective on trust, commitment, satisfaction, and cooperation with the client. Market intelligence gaps, the difference between the media planners? perceived value of specific market information and how often clients assure media planners have access to the information, were used to define information sharing. A gap analysis confirmed media planners do not receive certain types of market information as frequently as they would like. The results of the study provided evidence that the perceived information gap has a negative effect on the quality of the client-media planner relationship, as perceived by the media planner. In addition, the results suggested that the relationship satisfaction may play a critical role in improving affective commitment to the client and in turn intention to cooperate. The current study also attempted to compare the findings between two types of advertising agencies: full-service agencies and media specialized agencies. The results demonstrated that media planners in full-service agencies are less likely to perceive the gaps and, thus, more likely to report higher relationship quality than those in media agencies. This study extends advertising literature by applying relationship marketing theory to explain agency-client relationships. Specific suggestions for both clients and media planners to improve the quality of relationships through information sharing are provided. Recommendations for future research in this area are also provided. ( en ) Advisors/Committee Members: Sutherland, John C. (committee chair), Morton, Cynthia R. (committee member), Morris, Jon D.
