The Viability of alliance governance: An application of the Viable Alliance Model to enhance the cooperation and coordination in alliances
My research aims to apply the science of cybernetics particularly the viable system model to project alliances in attempt to provide a governance framework for organisations involved. The research combines three aspects of interorganisational relationships; mainly governance, cooperation and coordination. As such, I will be studying large complex projects looking at their interorganisational interactions in order to develop a framework for their governance through the viable alliance model (VAM). This will allow project organisation to assess the viability of alliances while maintaining an adaptable framework of governance.
