Title: Managing Risk and Synergies R&D-Collaborations
The case of Mobile Commerce
Author: Mahnke, Volker; Overby, Mikkel Lucas
Abstract: Many companies in the cross section of telecommunication and mobile technology engage in R&D collaborations to manage uncertainty, create synergies and learn. While the challenges of managing individual collaborations are well documented, little is known on how to systematically manage several R&D collaborations simultaneously. We use modern portfolio theory as an analogy to show how companies active in mobile telecommunication manage risks and create synergies by simultaneously engaging in several inter-firm collaborations. Keywords: Portfolio theory, risk, synergy, R&D collaboration, mobile commerce
