11). Hence, this conceptualization of a business relationship largely builds upon the dimensions presented above as basic building blocks in the Network model. The activity links, resource ties and actor bonds all affect the outcome of the relationship in different ways. The activity layer can be related to productivity, the resource layer to innovativity and the actor layer to identity (Dubois, 1994), though, it is important to consider that these layers are interrelated.

Value of Resources – Resource Combination and Adaptation All firms need access to resources – tangible as well as intangible resources. ” Every firm has a unique resource collection. ” However, if seen over a longer period of time, the resource base is continually developing (Gadde & H˚akansson, 2001). Fundamental to this development is that resources are always used in combination with other resources (H˚akansson & Snehota, 1995).

Granovetter distinguishes between relational and structural aspects of embeddedness, aspects that roughly can be “translated” to relationships and networks within the Industrial Network Approach. The structural aspect of embeddedness is particularly emphasized as it is easy to slip into “dyadic atomization,” that is, to focus on dyads only.
