It is a firm’s collaboration ability within and between organizations that involve cooperation at work to pursue a common set of goals. Also, a paradigm model developed shows the causal phase of company’s sharing behavior and the result. Applications/Improvements: The results highlight the importance of sharing competency in the business domain and provide further research directions.
