Abstract PURPOSE - This paper proposes an integrative framework for supply chain collaboration which is based on the reciprocal approach. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH - A reciprocal approach is adopted to capture the interaction phenomenon of different features of collaboration in attaining overall supply chain performance. FINDINGS - A collaborative supply chain framework is composed of five connecting features of collaboration, namely collaborative performance system, information sharing, decision synchronization, incentive alignment, and integrated supply chain processes. RESEARCH LIMITATIONS/IMPLICATIONS - Further research could be carried out to capitalize the framework for diagnosing and improving supply chain collaboration. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS - The proposed framework enables the chain members to scrutinize key features of supply chain collaboration before and during collaborative initiatives. ORIGINALITY/VALUE - Previous research on supply chain collaboration mainly assume the unilateral phenomenon of collaboration that focuses on a single feature such as information sharing or co-managed inventory. The proposed framework for the first time explicitly addresses the interaction of different connecting features of collaboration.
