Al-Hakim, Latif and Johnson Morgan, Melissa and Chau, Roberta (2014) An empirical evaluation of information sharing between Australia-Singapore beef organisations in light of trust and ICT diffusion. International Journal of e-Collaboration, 10 (3). pp. 1-29. ISSN 1548-3673

Abstract

This study investigates cross-border collaboration between beef organisations in Australia and Singapore. It aims to identify factors impacting trust and technology diffusion by gauging gaps between expected importance and perceived performance rating of the factors. The research presents results of a survey comprising 69 beef organisations from Australia and Singapore. The research identifies critical gaps using two methods of analysis; validity analysis and performance gap analysis. Each method comprises two types of tests. The WarpPLS software is used to perform the validity analysis. Results indicate gaps in level of responsiveness.
The research concludes that the success of cross-border collaboration between organisations in both Australia and Singapore can be better achieved through the establishment of information exchange relationships, rather than through the use of technology alone, and by ensuring compatibility between business partners.
