Theoretic Perspectives on Inter-Organisational Co-operation
Generally, there exists no single, holistic theory, but a multiplicity of strands which are either alone or in combination used to explain and characterise inter-organisational co-operation (Child et al., 2005; Faulkner & de Rond, 2000; Sydow, 1992). Many of these theoretical strands concentrate on very narrow questions or on rather stable (vertical) relationships between organisations. Thus, they are not well suited to generate an understanding for interactive learning and novelty generation in temporary inter-organisational projects.
