Conclusion

I began by noting how networks have become popular interorganizational governance mechanisms, how networks are diffi cult to manage due to their complexity, and that unsatisfactory network management is one of the main causes for a network’s demise.

This book takes an important step in this direction, in exploring and better understanding the management of networks.
