Strategic networks: morphology, epistemology and praxis

New, Steve and Mitropoulos, I. (1995) Strategic networks: morphology, epistemology and praxis. International Journal of Operations and Production Management, 15 (11). pp. 53-61.


In marketing and operations literature, there is an emerging consensus that the inter-firm network is of strategic significance. The assumption that supply networks are always out there waiting to be investigated is challenged. Rather than treat networks as objective artifacts, the extent to which they are invented and chosen by actor(s)/observer(s) is explored. Examples are used to illustrate this argument.
