    No organization is an island—all need relationships with other organizations to survive and grow. Furthermore, in the present networked environment the traditional focus on firms as discrete entities is increasingly inappropriate, and multiple values and conflicting interests must be considered at both value network and business ecosystem levels (Valkokari et al. 2012). In particular, sustainability as future-oriented business development task challenges companies to rethink their current business operations and network structures.
