In the last few years acquisitions and alliances have become a very important part of Indian firms’ competitive and growth strategies. This panel showcases research from leading scholars who have been studying these phenomena in the context of Indian firms. The panel will address issues such as the evolutionary learning dynamics in Indian firms’ alliances and its implications for firm strategy performance, and major lessons Indian firms can learn from their counterparts in the west as well as some steps in building a broad company wide capability to make alliances and acquisitions more effective. A senior scholar from the alliances and acquisitions area will provide an integrative perspective regarding Indian firms’ acquisition and alliances strategies and highlight opportunities for future research in this area. This will be followed by an open panel discussion with involvement from the floor in the form of Q&A.
