Module 6      2 Abstract Response   to   the   first   question   discusses   importance   of   interorganizational  relationships   to   organizational   environment   as   they   provide   the   possibility   for   firm  innovation and enhancement, and also offer employees the chance to discuss current  professional practices with others in related fields. Response to the second question  lists the conditions that are necessary for organization formation such as technological,  legal, political and demographic conditions. Response to third question talks about my  views   on   the   statement   "Organizations   are   not   benign   recipients   of   the   laws   and  regulations”. Response to the fourth question explains that the demographic conditions  significantly impact organizational environment. Response to fifth question states the  relationship between Boundary Spanners and the perception of the environment. .

Module 6      3 Module 6 Deliverables Assignments:  Questions Question   1:   Why   are   interorganizational   relationships   important   to   our  understanding of the impact of organizational environment?   Response:   “In   the   last   two   decades   the   literature   concerning   interorganizational  relationships (IRs), particularly strategic alliances, joint ventures, and social network  analysis, has exploded. The nascent literature concerning learning processes in IRs  suggests that learning occurs on both micro and macro levels. At the micro level of  analysis, inter-personal links generally offer individuals the opportunity to share and  learn skills that will improve their personal lives. At the macro level of analysis, IRs often  provides a forum for professionals to share and receive knowledge which may result in  improving their companies’ competitiveness and profitability. It is the latter level of  analysis that this essay addresses, primarily focusing on the ways in which learning  through IRs improves organizational life.  IRs has the potential to add value to organizations in two ways:  1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
