|This study is built upon the attention-based view of the firm, postulating that the behavioral patterns of organizations can be more fully understood by focusing on how managers as cognitive misers allocate their attentional resources to various problems that they are facing and to different parts of dynamically changing environments. We apply the attention-based view to explicate decision makings for developing mutual forbearance by firms in multiple markets, costs of search for partners in alliance networks, and co-evolutionary processes for making stars. We extend not only these literatures by incorporating the idea of attention but also the attention-based view itself by showing its applicability and utilities.
