This paper examines an explanatory power of primary alliance motivation theories, such as 'Transaction-Cost Economics (TCE)' and 'Resource-Based View (RBV)', on the technological alliance partner selection criteria, governance and performance. Adopting perspectives of integration provided by TCE and RBV, this work examines the impact of both theories on the alliance processes such as alliance partner selection, governance and performance. Empirical findings show that both TCE and RBV are effective in explaining the choice of technological alliance partners. In addition, TCE appears to be more effective in providing explanation of technological alliance governance structure. Also, both TCE and RBV are effective in evaluating the technological alliance performance phase, though RBV appears to be slightly more effective.
