Abstract :
 
Using cross-channel mail survey, we analyze two dimensions to information sharing within supply chain networks (n=254, senior-level supply chain managers). The first dimension—connectivity or technology—has been heavily investigated and found to have significant impact on firm profitability. The second dimension—willingness or human behavior—has been overlooked as a facilitator of information sharing and its impact on information integration and firm profitability and performance. We find evidence to support that position that willingness to share information—fostered by organizational culture—does have an even greater impact on firm profitability and performance than connectivity.
