Abstract [en]

Based on the idea that the planned networks in the Soviet Union were characterised by anonymity the paper discusses how Russian firms as a consequence of the abolishment of the plan-governance develop an identity. A longitudinal study from the Russian printing industry covering the 1980s and 1990s indicates that this development is tied to the fact that firms are forced to perform mutual and interactive planning in the relationship. Prior the institutional changes, the plan authorities were assumed to have the knowledge needed to co-ordinate the activities in the networks, but the transition to market-governed networks resulted in a deeper mutuality and a more intensive interaction, which, in turn, meant that firms gained relationship-specific experience
