|Contents:||In this course we will focus on the relationships between organizations. Cooperation between organizations has become a strategic activity and takes many forms. Firms intensify their outsourcing activities, integrate supply chains, invest in customer and supplier relationship management, form strategic alliances and partnerships, etcetera. How can IT help organizations to achieve win-win relationships with their environment, considering the increase in interdependencies and interorganizational coordination problems? In this course this challenge is addressed from both a managerial and technological perspective. In practice, students will jointly perform a scientific research project to apply different theoretical and empirical approaches to the subject.|
