Path Dependency in B2B-Relationships

 

The doctoral thesis will address the question if sources of relational rents lead to path dependence in b2b-relationships. Additionally the question will be asked if there are any differences in b2b relationships between b2b relationships of German companies with Chinese firms and with US firms regarding the issue of path dependence caused by the sources of relational rents. The presumed contribution lies in the combination and empirical analysis of the relational view and path dependence. The combination of these theories offers a broader view which adds the down side of potential inefficiency to the (transaction) costs reducing and benefits enhancing (e.g. by relation-specific governance mechanisms) bright side of relational rents. The empirical analysis will consist of semi-structured interviews and a simultaneous equation model. The explorative qualitative research design offers first insights and establishes the base for the simultaneous equation model, which draws on the theoretical discussion and the qualitative empirical findings.
