Understanding how firms and other stakeholders cooperate and exploit networks and networked resources are at the core of the agenda of this research symposium.
Increasingly, owning resources appears to be less relevant to contemporary organisations than having access to resourceful networks.
Today, businesses need to take into account the interplay between local activities in regional clusters and those embedded in global value chains. Their various value creation activities may follow different organisational principles. Exchange modes may vary between market, hierarchy and cooperative governance forms. The notion of cultivating and accessing resourceful networks is thus significant.
Business activities may extend beyond the focal firm and into a dynamic relational space which connects stakeholders, other firms and industry participants in changing eco-systems.
The organisers of the research symposium aim to bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse backgrounds to share knowledge and insights into the topic of networks in changing business environments. Building on this interdisciplinary exchange, we seek to establish a broad cooperative research agenda about the contemporary role of businesses in an increasingly networked world.
Abstracts and proposals (approx. 500 words) relating to the symposium theme networks in changing business environments are invited. Please include author affiliations and contact details of corresponding author.
