    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


    This paper proposes a socio-cognitive model of technological co-operation which links substantive interactions in a technological co-operation project with an analysis of group processes. Substantive interactions are concerned with the development of business relationships and the transformation and transaction of resources and goods. Social interactions are concerned with the development of group integration through the creation and maintenance of shared understanding and communication among participating individuals. Insight into these interactions will improve our understanding of the process of technological co-operation and provide input into the management of this process. Therefore, a unique method is proposed. It consists of an analysis at the level of the project and at the level of communicating participants. This approach is applied to a study of a collaborative project in the Dutch construction industry
