5.why Are Many Strategic Alliances Temporary
The major policy question for governments weighing claims of labor shortages is whether they should allow naturally occurring wage changes to balance labor supply and demand when employers complain of labor shortages, or whether they should use migration policy to admit new workers into the country to address shortages. And if governments decide to admit new migrant workers, the next question that arises is what the terms and conditions of their admission should be. For example, should new migrant workers be admitted as permanent immigrants with freedom in the labor market or as temporary workers who are tied to a particular employer?
12) Flexibility: An alliance can work well in short bursts. But if it’s designed to last too long and run too cheaply, it will cost the organization too much in terms of time, effort, and money; and it may frustrate the very employees it’s supposed to help (Reskin, 2002).
Very soon after an alliance is formed, most partners just want to pick their main partners from a range of potential partners available, and then focus on the main alliance. Thus, there is little time to work on the soft skills associated with relational management. You will often lose your relationship with your partner because she got bored, and your only choice would be to move on to another.
Alliances have a short life. Within five years, the situation becomes so complex that it’s difficult to manage the relationship. Most companies know this is inevitable, and they plan to build their alliances from scratch every year or two.

It is also the most controversial due to their potential to alter the size, composition, and viability of national economies.
