Abstract:

In this paper we elaborate on approaches to a network theory of the firm. Suggesting that 'the firm' may explain 'the network' and vice versa, we use these two interacting issues as our point of departure. An example of a firm in its network context serves as a platform for discussion of how the firm as an actor, and as a resource, interacts with other firms and their resources. In conclusion, we suggest that firms need to be understood both as means and ends to explain how they develop in interaction with other firms.
