Resource description

This paper investigates the comparative role of several factors, including information technology (IT), predicting the level of cooperation between two independent organizations. Drawing upon multiple theoretical perspectives we develop five hypotheses about the impact on cooperation of three sets of factors: (1) the characteristics of the environment within which the relationship operates, (2) the characteristics of the relationship itself, and (3) how information technology is used across organizational boundaries. Each conceptual construct is operationalized and measured within the context of buyer-supplier relationships in the US and Japanese automobile industries. The five hypotheses are tested using multiple regressions conducted on a data set of 447 distinct relationships
