Abstract

This study investigates the performance consequences of collaboration in supply chain partnerships, and also investigates whether environmental uncertainty affects the degree to which collaboration is desirable. With a sample drawn from international subsidiaries of Nordic multinational corporations (MNCs), the authors find that collaborative partnerships contribute to increased levels of partnership performance both in terms of relationship effectiveness and in terms of cost reduction benefits. The moderating effect of environmental uncertainty, however, had no impact on the relationship between collaboration and performance. The implications of these findings for academics and practitioners are discussed.
