Among the main contributions in this chapter are the conceptual framework that synthesises the most signiﬁcant relational dimensions describing dynamics in business interactions and the models that explore relational dynamics in the context of different types of relationships. In this chapter I also attempt to conceptualise the heterogeneity of processes in business networks, such as enrolment and network construction, ‘translation’ and the normative activities within networks, competition, cooperation, selection and ‘displacement’ of other members, as well as repositioning through strategic choices.
One of the early contributions from the sociological perspective has been the theorising by George Simmel (1950) who attempted to explain the emergence of social phenomena as arising from exchanges, relations and reciprocal action of human agents. He described the society as a ‘network of afﬁliations’ and complex ‘inter-subjective movements’, exhibited as activities and intentional behaviour of conscious human actors (Mattelart and Mattelart, 1998). Simmel did not attempt to deﬁne the concept of what network is but pointed to the fact that social structures arise from relationships embedded in afﬁliations and inter-subjective movements, inter-subjective dynamics which bond people together.
Burt (1982) acknowledges that the advantages of the relational approach are that it is possible to build network models that describe the intensity of dyadic relationships. Under these models researchers could describe an actor’s behaviour knowing only a few of the actor’s relationships and without attending to the actor’s many other relations. Burt acknowledges also that the relational approach is not suitable for mathematical modelling, as it requires detailed information on the network boundaries and on a representative set of relationships.
