Technological collaboration in industrial networks



The author considers how companies handle their technological development in relation to external clients and organizations, particularly in terms of collaborative projects. Using research undertaken on Swedish companies, Håkansson shows that collaborative relationships are of strategic importance to companies, these relationships are investment-intensive, that the type of counterpart used is important (suppliers and customers), and that collaborative relationships generally evolve organically and informally.
