'Tic-Toc-Tic-Toc': Thoughts on The Tempo of Business Network Extension
2016 (English)In: Extending the Business Network Approach: New Territories, New Technologies, New Terms / [ed] Peter Thilenius, Cecilia Pahlberg and Virpi Havila, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016, 359-375 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
‘Tic-Toc-Tic-Toc’… a long time has passed for the business network approach. The main aim of this chapter is to discuss the history of boundary extension in business networks, starting in the old times and ending in the new times. Many researchers believe in the existence of the ‘business network’ to some degree. This chapter takes the perception of the business network as a point of departure, working from the perspective that its boundary depends on the intention of the observer. This perspective allows us to present a developmental journey of how the business network approach, over time and in different tempos, has gained its identity, whilst both implicitly and explicitly extended its boundary.
