    Abstract

    In the introductory chapter of the book we present the framework for network dynamics and management based on a comprehensive practice-based perspective. The framework serves as platform through which it is possible to figure out the comprehensive system-like nature of networking. In the framework, we use ideas adapted from the strategy-as-practice research stream and propose a specific networks-as-practice model. The framework introduces three categories of networking practices that we assume to grasp a great deal of inter-organizational interaction: Networks-as-coordinated social systems, Networks-as-knowledge-creating platforms, and Networks-as-value-generating entities.
