Abstract

This paper examines how product architecture and collaborative ventures co-evolve in dynamic environments. Drawing on a longitudinal study, the paper highlights how the scope and nature of the collaboration evolves, focusing on changes in technological module boundaries. Based on a case from the mobile telephony industry, the study tracks the antecedents to these changes and shows the challenges rival firms face when collaborating in rapidly changing settings.
