This paper proposes a study to examine the influence of information technology (IT) use across organizations in an alliance where IT is used to facilitate the relationship with external entities; specifically the study will explore the impact on interorganizational learning (IOL). IOL is an important area of interest to researchers and practitioners because the solutions to many problems in organizations cross organizational boundaries and a clearer understanding of the processes that take place still remain to be uncovered. A case study methodology will be used to investigate the impact on IOL across the organizations through the influence of IT use on organizational transparency and organizational receptivity of the external entities associated with the collaborating organizations.
