Abstract


Although behavioral factors have the prominent aspect of supply chain implementations; little is known about which behavioral factors foster the organizational level of supply chain learning. Building on prior research this study explores the impact of achievement needs, cospecialized knowledge power, and arranged interactions, prior experience in the unrelated field, and mutual benefit sharing on organizational level of supply chain learning. The study use epistemology world view, interpretative theoretical perspective, and multiple case study methodology and ground theory thematic analysis method to analyze data. Findings indicate the critical role of achievement needs, cospecialized knowledge power, arranged interactions prior, experience in the unrelated field, and mutual benefit sharing on enhancing the organizational level of supply chain learning. The study fills gaps in supply chain learning theory, relational view, and resource dependency theory. It signals practitioners the need to emphasize behavioral aspects in achieving successful implementations. Future researchers need to further explore behavioral themes found in this study that enrich theory building in the phenomena of study.
