Resource description

This paper proposes a framework - rooted in the organizational learning perspective - to analyze the sources and the persistence of information asymmetries between the parties in interfirm partnerships. The impact of the partnership task, of the interface between the partners, and of the partners' goals and organizational processes on how well they learn about the environment of their partnership, about their joint task, about each other, about the process of collaborating, and about their partner's skills is analyzed. The consequences of differentiated learning, between partners, and across the environment, task, partner, collaboration and skill dimensions of the partnerships are then reviewed and discussed, using the proposed framework
