Section 1 (50 words)
Article A (Fryxell et al. 2002) contains a scrutinizing study conducted on 129 US-based international joint ventures (IJVs), and its subsequent results. The main aim of the article is to investigate what compounding effects the variables age and partner trust, have on the relationship between control mechanisms and perceptions of performance within the IJVs.
Section 2 (50 words)
Article B (Tongia 2004) and article C (Gicheol et al. 2008) share the same subject of focus, whether broadband over a powerline carrier (BPLC) can be competitive in the telecommunications market.
Both article B (Tongia 2004) and article C ( Gicheol et al. 2008) agree that the major factor in determining BPLC’s market competitiveness is the speed in which it can transmit or upload data.
Section 3 (49 words)
The technology being examined in article B ( Tongia 2004) would be far more inferior to the technology advancements which are examined in article C ( Gicheol et al. 2008).
Article C ( Gicheol 2008) also includes a prediction of market demand for BPLC based on its study, in contrast to this article B ( Tongia 2004) contains no prediction for market demand.
