In those instances, choices to interdependent reliance on one other executive organization might be thought of. for instance, firms may perhaps locate that purchasing providers from one other business enterprise or pursuing interagency coordination of spaceflight info assortment is most advantageous to completely interdependent cooperation.--Publisher's descripiton.
