    Abstract

    We conceptualize a networks-as-practice model by grounding our systems framework in the resource-based view (RBV), on the one hand, and in the strategy-as-practice perspective, on the other. From the RBV we adopt the idea of valuable resources that are developed or deployed through activities. These activities are analogous to the practices in the practice-based approach, that is, generic ways of performing various tasks or functions. The notion of praxis in the practice-based approach gives our framework a dynamic touch. Praxis, that is, actual activities or actual ways to perform general practices, have a tendency to maintain, reinforce as well as transform the general practices. The tools introduced in the book represent networking practices that are supposed to guide actual behavior in inter-organizational boundaries.
