Project on cooperation in large media firms

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: The project explores how media companies promote and incentivise cross-divisional cooperation and cooperation among subsidiary firms. One of the clear difficulties of firms owning different types of media has been how to gain cooperation and financial expenditures from various divisions for joint projects and how rewards for cooperation and performance in those projects should be established. There are many hurdles to cross-media activities and it is one reason why synergies from creating expanded media firms have been elusive. Cooperation may be useful for the corporation but harmful to the economies of the individual divisions and divisional leaders whose bonuses are tied to that performance. Similarly, cooperation may increase revenue or provide more advantages to one division or subsidiary company than another.
