The goal of this paper is to develop a model which helps companies in the \"Networked economy\" to design and manage its cross-company business processes (Business Networking). Based on some case examples the authors recognize the importance of the process view when it comes to design business networks for implementation. They elaborate an approach which combines findings of network theory and business process re-engineering using results of coordination theory. To reduce complexity, they split the networking problem into five coordination areas.
