Abstract [en]

During the last decade there has been an increased interest in various forms of cooperative project client-supplier relationships, where the relationship between involved parties is defined by trust rather than control. In this paper it is argued that this development – the movement away from a focus on control as the main governing mechanism, towards trust – triggers a deeply rooted change in the underlying business logic. A change rarely addressed or analyzed in contemporary research. To put it bluntly, it is suggested that partnering projects, as the unit of analysis in this paper, are becoming service oriented engagement platforms. By drawing on an established framework within the area of service-dominant logic, the aim of this paper is to analyze the relational aspects and illustrate how a partnering project can be understood as an engagement platform. The paper builds on empirical illustrations from a Swedish partnering project and highlights a potential way forward to further understand the role of cooperative project client-supplier relationships.
