This study emphasizes the relationship between domain learning in an alliance portfolio – convergence and divergence - and firm performance. Interorganizational dependency is argued as the moderator for this relationship. This study empirically tests the developed hypotheses on the S&P 500 firms from 2000 to 2007. The results indicate that domain learning is positively associated with firm performance. Further results indicate that the nature of interdependencies between a firm and its partners in an alliance portfolio moderates this relationship, and specifically that a firm will generate better performance when it is less dependent on its partners. The above findings have important implications both for academics and professional alliance portfolio managers.
