Research Needs on Interagency Cooperation.
Rogers, David L.; Whetten, David
The product of a literature review by scholars in the field, this report is intended for researchers, those funding research, and those whose task is to coordinate organizations. A large number of research needs in the area of interagency coordination were identified, including research on the impacts of social philosophies and administrative principles on the organization of delivery systems; the dynamics of previous coordination strategies; which specific interest groups impact delivery systems; the process by which coordinated systems are developed; the necessary conditions for coordination; a theory of interorganizational coordination; the relationships between horizontal and vertical coordination; the roles of conflict in coordination; the interrelation among the basic forms of organizational interaction; the dynamics of the coordination process; the consequences of different types of coordination strategies; coordination from the perspective of both subjective and objective analysis; and the use of ethnographic and survey techniques to analyze coordination.
