Abstract: It is widely held that good relationships between partners are beneficial for firms' performance, and the literature on strategic management has consistently promoted the bright side of these relationships. This study extends that stream of investigation by investigating the degree to which three components of relationships (trust, affective commitment, and calculative commitment) can contribute to or impede innovation performance in high-tech industries. Thus, a theoretical model is developed and tested using data from 173 Taiwanese high-tech firms. The findings reveal that the relationships between trust and commitment and innovation performance can be depicted as an inverted curve.
