This study develops a governance perspective on technology acquisition that aims to explain the relationships among key acquisition attribute (technology interdependence), governance forms (tight versus loose integration processes), and innovation outcomes in technology acquisitions. This perspective provides two theoretical predictions: (1) the governance choice proposition describes the positive relationship between the level of target-acquirer interdependence and the likelihood of selecting a tight integration process, and (2) the discriminating alignment proposition argues that acquisition performance will be enhancedwhen a fit exists between the chosen governance form and the underlying acquisition attributes.
 
Key words: Postacquisition integration process, technology acquisition, technology interdependence.
