On Friday 6 March 2020, R.M.N. Bot will defend his PhD dissertation, entitled: ‘To a Conceptual Integrative Process Framework of the Performance of Interorganizational Cooperation’.
In the scientific management literature a process dimension is distinguished for interorganizational cooperation at a conceptual level. At the centre of this process dimension of interorganizational cooperation are among others the stages of the process. The theoretical substantiation of conceptual process frameworks, the influence of the process dimension on the performance, and illustrations of this through empirical research, however, are as yet underexposed.
The case study research is aimed at theory development for the process dimension of interorganizational cooperation and the implications thereof for the performance of cooperation. In this exploratory analysis the developed integrative process framework and the propositions have been investigated in the context of strategic renewal of long-term care for each of the five longitudinal case studies. In the analysis of the case studies, the activities of actors and partners are central.
The study provides insight in how intra-organizational factors and inter-organizational factors influence the continuity of the process c.q. stages of the cooperation and in which way the continuity of the process c.q. stages influence the performance of interorganizational cooperation. For example how the continuity of the process c.q. stages is influenced by the complementarity of activities between the partners. And furthermore how a higher continuity of the process c.q. stages has a positive influence on the results and with that on the performance of interorganizational cooperation.
