Practices for Network Management: In Search of Collaborative Advantage

Jukka Vesalainen (Editor), Katri Valkokari (Editor), Magnus Hellström (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook (editor)

Abstract

Presenting 17 tools developed through rigorous design science research, this book bridges the relevance gap within network management. In so doing, it proposes a novel system-framework and establishes a path towards a networks-as-practice view on inter-organizational relationships. The systems-framework builds on three institutionalized business practices: Networks-as-coordinated social systems, Networks-as-knowledge-creating platforms, and Networks-as-value-generating entities. Through these tools, Towards Relational Business Practices intends to propose a new managerial praxis and provoke new and improved frameworks and models for network management.
