The purpose of the paper is to develop a conceptual framework for analysis of time/space configurations in a business practice perspective on network dynamics. The authors regard business practice as performative in the shaping of networks. Thus they see markets as socially and materially constructed, stabilized and changed, in complex, never-ending processes. In these processes the construction of time and space is crucial. They use "Globalisation of markets", a phenomenon where a connection between time and space is evident, to illustrate the conceptual discussion.
