The environment complexity in which supply chain members are evolving leads them to adopt opposite strategies in a constructive way. In this sense companies tend to create value by cooperation and, at the same time, capture value by competition. This ago-antagonistic behavior generates a relational dynamics in which companies perform on a set of factors to improve their position within the chain. This enables them to progress towards common interests while ensuring on their own ones. In the present paper, this dynamics is analyzed by using ago-antagonistic system theory, which integrates an economic exchange orientation with a social exchange perspective in order to come up with a framework permitting to better understand and justify information sharing antecedents according to supply chain members' behavior.
