Cooperation-based learning (alpha = 0.86)[edit]


A previously multi-item 7-point scale was used. It was further pretested with six logistics researchers and six executive managers of logistics service providers to ensure face validity.


Cooperation-based learning, as one of the major motives behind cooperative strategies of firms in general (Doz & Hamel, 1998), refers to the extent to which intangible resources like know-how and information can be adopted from cooperation partners (Kogut, 1988).


To what extent have you learned from your cooperation partners in the following areas:

  • Technological expertise.
  • Development of new services.
  • Service production/delivery.
  • Management practices and tools.
