In this paper, I mix theoretical reasoning with empirical observation to gain a better understanding of value creation and value appropriation mechanisms in interorganizational relationships. The Resource Based View of the firm (RBV) is a useful tool to investigate value creation issues. On the other hand, value appropriation is essentially determined by the relative bargaining power of the partners. The empirical setting for the study is the relationship between Disney and Pixar from 1991 t 2006.
