As companies focus on core activities, inter-organisational relationships assume greater importance. This places new demands on cross-boundary, inter-organisational relationships. It is often argued that information and communication technology enables the seamless and efficient flow of information between market-facing organisations and their suppliers. Moving beyond simple market mechanisms based on price, the efficiency and effectiveness of inter-organisational networks can be improved through information sharing.
