- Partner selection: criteria for successful collaborative network
- Che Mat, Noor Azliza; Cheung, Yen; Scheepers, Helana
- Collaboration amongst organizations plays a vital role in managing turbulent business environments particularly for small medium sized organizations which have limited resources. The emerging discipline of collaborative networks provides a platform for both the theory and practice of digital collaborative network. Selecting partner(s) for collaborative projects is the main challenge that organizations face before they can attain the advantages of collaboration. In this research, an on-line survey was conducted relating to partner selection criteria. The finding indicates that criteria such as previous track record in business, integrity and commitment are most important whereas criteria such as location and size are less important for collaborator selection.
