Abstract We contribute to the business network literature by presenting and introducing a radical constructivist research approach, in which we foreground sharing the context of an actor's understanding of interaction. We elaborate the approach by illuminating the problematic issue of boundaries in business network research. We conceptualize boundaries as inter-action spaces and times where differences are created, maintained and changed in a physical-social setting. We make a distinction betwee...

Abstract Constructivist and realist research is undertaken in the business relationship and network approach of the Industrial Marketing and Purchasing Group. These two divergent research perspectives seek a different form of contextual understanding vs. general knowledge. They are not incommensurable as one can gain insights from the other. But a researcher must know and understand both perspectives and sometimes be able to see when a writer is playing almost a middle ground to make a specific ...

Changes in relational governance have mainly been documented in the form of relationship building, developments and repairs related to tensions, or break-ups of otherwise strong relationships. In this paper, we take a closer look at the relational governance of long-distance international exchanges between producers and importers of fine wine. We contribute by providing evidence for several novel relational governance changes, and we document portfolio effects on governance choices. Fine wine pr...

With innovation and entrepreneurship lauded as important contributors to economic futures, there is a pressing need to unravel the complexities of entrepreneurial ecosystems as a context for cultivating new businesses initiatives. This chapter reports on the deconstruction and analysis of the entrepreneurial ecosystem concept, through a hermeneutic reflection catalysed by a symposium of international scholars. We apply the theoretical fields of business networks and systems theory within our ref...

Abstract Start-up firms are notoriously resource and time poor. One way of addressing these deficits is to develop strategic capability to access, activate and co-shape resources with other firms in the start-up's network. The capability literature assumes such a development is inevitable, provided a start-up survives. But developing network capability depends on the managers of other firms, the deepening managerial understanding of business relationships, and the ability of the start-up manager...

Abstract Our focus is on understanding the interplay of social structure and human agency in business networks. Our solution is to propose a contextual logics perspective, by asking: How do contextual logics emerge and decay within different parts of the network, and what is their role in the mobilization of resources, activities and business relationships? An historical case study of a network extending to two decades is employed to understand change through the use of contextual logics to acce...

A new theoretical framework is developed to scrutinize the strategic advantage for branding. The theoretical framework applies both at the firm level, for the marketing of individual brands and corporate brands, and also to branding where a marketing agent plays a facilitating role within a community or industry. The framework presents branding as a dynamic capability held by a marketing agent within a market network. Two interrelated processes are involved: (i) managing brand identity and (ii) ...

Abstract Interactive processes constitute a core notion in business exchange, leading to the concepts of relationships and networks. The constitution of process, comprising unfolding events, activities, and connected structures, relies on difference in space and time. While research has been devoted to time, the concept of space has thus far remained largely unexplored within business network research. This conceptual paper focuses on spatial dimensions for conducting research according to the I...

Angesichts disruptiver Technologien entstehen neue Geschaftsmodelle. Dies hat Auswirkungen auf die Markenpolitik sowie die Bedeutung von Marken und deren Markenwert. Netzwerke und damit verbundene Marketingtheorien wie die Service Dominant Logic (SDL) werden zum zentralen Bezugsrahmen moderner Markenpolitik. Durch das innovative von der SDL abgeleitete Konzept „Vernetztes Branding“ wird deutlich, dass Marken nicht allein durch Unternehmen geschaffen werden, sondern Markenbedeutung letztendlich d...
