Abstract: There exist significant differences in terms of the amount of information that is shared among various supply chains. Among the various factors that affect per-formance and information sharing, bargaining power of firms and the level of in-centive alignment are important considerations for sharing information within supply chains. This research presents a framework for explaining variances in in-formation sharing patterns in supply chain relationships. Drawing from game-theory, the framework is structured along two dimensions – bargaining power and incentive alignment, and postulates how these factors influence information sharing in supply chain relationships. The proposed framework contributes to theory and practice by developing a novel perspective to analyze information sharing in supply chains. The framework will allow practitioners to formulate and evaluate strategies to manage information sharing more effectively within their supply chains.
