|dc.description.abstract||Control and trust are recurring themes in the analysis of the management of International JointVentures (IJVs). Both issues (and their antecedents) have been analysed in isolation and intheir relation with performance, though hardly any study exists which analyses themsimultaneously in their interdependence. More importantly however, there are few, if any,studies that have empirically tested the existence and nature of the mechanisms that areassumed to link control and trust to performance. It is the purpose of this paper to empiricallyinvestigate these mechanisms in view of the interaction processes taking place between the JVpartners. Analysing the interaction processes in the context of control, trust and performanceis expected to provide a better understanding of the relationship between control, trust andperformance. To this aim a concept of inter-firm interaction in IJVs is proposed. Theempirical basis for this study consists of data gathered through a questionnaire survey amongGerman and Chinese General Managers of German-Chinese Joint Ventures (GCJVs) in thePeople?s Republic of China carried out in 2000/01. Using Cluster-Analysis two JV types arederived, which allow for some first yet tentative inferences to be made regarding the complexinterplay between control, trust, performance, and interaction in GCJVs.||en_US|
