Business networks: antecedents, life-cycle and critical success factors

The research group has the aim to analyse the phenomenon of business networks from the perspective of antecedents which enable the collaborative strategy and the expected outputs in terms of competitive advantages for the firms in the network; the research activity includes the analysis of network contracts, their distinctive features and their strengths and weaknesses. Among the aims of research there are analysis on: the strategic motivations under the network logic; the main benefits obtained or expected by the network’s firm; the main difficulties in operating, cultural and organisational terms. The research projects are developing through a double perspective, qualitative and quantitative, with data collection through interviews, focus groups and secondary data. A special focus is devoted to life-cycle in networks and the failure factors which could lead to termination or stasis in the collaboration.
