Organizations recognize that, to meet the needs of the modern global supply chain, they have to create close relationships with at least some of their supply chain partners. Yet they often lack a clear idea of what these relationships should look like and what can trigger their further development.

This article summarizes the findings from the research and their importance to organizations.
