Abstract
In this paper, we build a conceptual framework that models the influence of trust on strategic resource acquisition. The main focus is on the role of trust in interorganisational networks and how trust in interorganisational networks can accelerate the acquisition of strategic resources. Based on the network literature, social capital literature and the literature on trust, we seek to develop propositions that detail the relationships among trust, interorganisational network characteristics, strategic resource acquisition/network effectiveness and performance.
