Abstract

In this chapter we analyze the potential impact of information technology (IT) on the internationalization processes of family firms via cooperation agreements. With this in mind, we address the main research questions concerning the management of family firms and internationalization processes via strategic alliances. Subsequently, we carry out an analysis to determine IT’s impact on family firms’ internationalization processes. Our conclusions and the future trends that we observe suggest that family firms should undertake a series of internal adjustments in order to exploit, with more possibility of success, the changes resulting from the technological integration processes that can be expected in the near future.
