Essay 1 How have interorganizational relationships changed over the years?

In order to keep costs low, resources must be properly utilized and alliances must be made to satisfy the needs of companies. Companies have also found that by working together they have the ability to flood the market and consumers’ minds with the products the companies want them to buy.
