While previous studies emphasize that JV experience generally seems to be conducive to firms’ JV activities such that the greater a firm’s JV experience, the more likely it will form a new JV in the future than inexperienced firm, this study provides the boundary condition by showing that JV experience can partially deter firms’ subsequent JV formation with the existence of prior JV failure. In this regard, this study not only enhance our understanding of the complex nature of firms’ JV activities but also provides practical implication that JV experience is not a panacea but can sometimes hamper JV formation especially when focal firm needs to innovate its current way of conducting a JV in response to recent JV failure.</p> Steve Kyungjae Lee Copyright (c) 2019 Steve Kyungjae Lee 2019-11-10 2019-11-10 8 2 1 14 An Assessment of Industrial Relation Practices in Public organization; From the perspective of Employee-Management Relation <p>The main objective of the study was to assess Industraila Relation practices in&nbsp; &nbsp;puplic oragnization in case of Ethipian elictric Utili ty Ambo Branch, to see&nbsp; lthe condtion of Employee -Management Relation.
