Effects of Industry Span and Resource Stability on Interorganizational Relations

Abstract—When studying interorganizational relationships, it is very hard to distinguish between different forms of interorganizational relations (IORs) mentioned in the literature since they have some common similarities and differences. This leads researchers to experience difficulties in assessing the appropriate form of IORs for specific industrial settings. In this paper, we drive six new definitions for various IORs forms based on two pure forms of IORs; co-exploration and co- exploitation. Additionally, the effects of two environmental factors- stability of resource structure and span of industry- on construction of these IORs are discussed. Definitions derived according to intention (exploration or exploitation), and discussions on effect of two different environmental factors will move our understanding about interorganizational relations beyond joint ventures, strategic alliances, mergers, vertical integration.

Index Terms—interorganizational relations, co-exploration, co-exploitation
