    Abstract

    In the world of networked innovation and ecosystems, flows of resources into the organization as well as between organizations are emphasized. This allows for using network measures for better understanding. In this study, we look at the case context of Finnish game industry, concentrating especially on inter-organizational flows of board networks or interlocks, and the possibilities of using SNA metrics for insights. The game industry has been very successful, with a turnover of 1.8 Billion Euros in 2014, and we explore the role of board interlocks in it. Our findings of the formal board member networks indicate that in contrast to the assumptions of high actor or node level metrics (degree and betweenness centrality) and the network level metrics (density and clustering), board interlocks are limited.
