This paper will examine the literature on strategic alliances and propose an integrated framework of
strategic alliances based on the reviewed material. The paper will examine two theoretical models of
strategic alliances, suggested by Vyas et al. (1995) and Osland and Yaprak (1993), respectively. This
paper will also investigate literature concerning advantages and disadvantages of entering into a
strategic alliance. Finally, the author will suggest an integrated framework of strategic alliances, which
includes the motives for forming, the process of forming, and the result of forming a strategic alliance.
