This study explores how collaborations between organizations in distinct market niches can result in greater innovation and performance outcomes compared with individual strategies or collaborations within the same niche. An analysis of co-productions in Hollywood finds that feature films made together by major generalist studios and specialist production companies show more creative features and higher box-office results than other forms of film production. These patterns suggest that an organization’s position within a market and its search strategies for sampling changing audience preferences jointly contribute to the performance and innovative outcomes of inter-firm collaborations.
