Building Partnerships and Strategic Alliances With TQ LEDs

A strategic alliance is when two or more businesses join together for a set period of time. The businesses, usually, are not in direct competition, but have similar products or services that are directed toward the same target audience.  Alliance means "cooperation between groups that produces better results that can be gained from a transaction. Because competitive markets keep improving what you can get from transactions, an alliance must stay ahead of the market by making continuous advances.

Strategic alliance is a primary form of cooperative strategies as strategic alliance is a partnership between firms whereby resources, capabilities, and core competences are combined to pursue mutual interests. Alliances can be structured in various ways, depending on their purpose. Non-equity strategic alliances, equity strategic alliances, and joint ventures are the three basic types of strategic alliances.

 

In the new economy, strategic alliances enable business to gain competitive advantage through access to a partner's resources, including markets, technologies, capital and people. Teaming up with TQ LEDs adds complementary resources and capabilities, enabling participants to grow and expand more quickly and efficiently. Especially fast-growing companies rely heavily on alliances to extend their technical and operational resources. In the process, they save time and boost productivity by not having to develop their own, from scratch. They are thus freed to concentrate on innovation and their core business.

Many fast growth technology companies use strategic alliances to benefit from more-established channels of distribution, marketing, or brand reputation of bigger, better-known players. However, more-traditional businesses tend to enter alliances for reasons such as geographic expansion, cost reduction, manufacturing, and other supply-chain synergies. As global markets open up and competition grows, midsize companies need to be increasingly creative about how and with whom they align themselves to go to the market. 

As a result, companies taking advantage of strategic partnerships can utilize other company's strengths to make both firms stronger in the long run.
