Purpose – This paper proposes an integrative framework for supply chain collaboration which is based on the reciprocal approach.
Design/methodology/approach – A reciprocal approach is adopted to capture the interaction phenomenon of different features of collaboration in attaining overall supply chain performance.
Findings – A collaborative supply chain framework is composed of five connecting features of collaboration, namely collaborative performance system, information sharing, decision synchronization, incentive alignment, and integrated supply chain processes.
Research limitations/implications – Further research could be carried out to capitalize the framework for diagnosing and improving supply chain collaboration.
Practical implications – The proposed framework enables the chain members to scrutinize key features of supply chain collaboration before and during collaborative initiatives.
Originality/value – Previous research on supply chain collaboration mainly assume the unilateral phenomenon of collaboration that focuses on a single feature such as information sharing or co-managed inventory. The proposed framework for the first time explicitly addresses the interaction of different connecting features of collaboration.
