Empirical Study Of Institutions Romania

Daniel Glaser-Segura and Laurentiu-Dan Anghel

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This study incorporates an institutional theory framework in which social norms affect interorganizational cooperation (IC). Empirical findings from a survey of 96 Romanian manufacturing firms support proposed hypotheses. Interorganizational trust is positively related to IC. Individualism and collectivism (indcol) exhibits a statistically significant relationship with IC. JIT/TQM presents a positive relationship and also supports the hypothesis that it serves as a superordinate goal over interorganizational trust and indcol to foster interorganizational cooperation.
