They represent the BSR's ability to exercise control (labeled as 'control capabilities'10). Consequently, the work at hand aims to empirically assess effectiveness of formal performance control in BSRs by identifying control capabilities and analyzing causalities between them, as well as determining the effect of control activities on performance of BSRs. g. the level of IT integration and information sharing between the two partners) on control activities' effectiveness. g. g. 11 In order to guarantee relevance and applicability of this approach, special emphasis will also be put on critically assessing the idea and potential of unbiased cooperative performance control in BSRs by investigating the role of perspective (buyer vs.

Thus, they must be brought into a supply chain context to systematically identify requirements for the framework resulting from a supply chain-based perspective performance control in BSRs.

Going into more detail regarding the dyadic relationships, Ross et al. (2009: 38) also emphasize the lack of analyzing the buyer-supplier interface from an unbiased point of view, also stating that most scientific studies on BSRs in 22 Theoretical relevance manufacturing and logistics literature have either adopted a buyer or supplier firm view.
