Executive Summary

Growing attention to business-to-business networks and the demonstrated linkage between firm performance and collaborative efforts within these networks, fuels the continued search for a greater understanding of what is needed to manage in complex business constellations. A key component of this challenge, and the focus of this paper, is the competencies and capabilities required at the firm level to engage in meaningful network relationships to enhance performance.
