Abstract

This paper examines the evolution of cooperation in a strategic alliance, in particular the integration processes of joint alliance teams in the BP and Statoil exploration and production alliance. Based on 116 interviews, collected over the four-year period 1995–1998, an alliance integration model has evolved that systemizes and facilitates understanding the inherent processes and issues facing alliance integration. Four major issues were considered essential to the successful integration of these alliance teams: integration as an early and continuous process, clear and committed leadership with strong interpersonal skills, the importance of culture and the need for a separate alliance identity, and reevaluation and renegotiation of alliance workings.
