Abstract


 This explorative study examines customer-supplier relationships from the perspective of psychological contracts. Based on findings from a multiple case study, the content of the psychological contracts of individuals involved in customer-supplier relationships are presented. The study provides support for the use of psychological contracts for describing the dynamics of customer-supplier relations on an individual level, as well as for a transactional-relational dimension of the psychological contracts.
