Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Organizational studies have recognized the effect of interdependence has on network forms. In the case of supply chains, increased externalization results not only in dependence but also in a structural imbalance in the network position of individual members. Although firms in a supply chain depend on each other and work together for mutual benefit, the relationships among them are rarely symmetrical. Supply chains often have channel leaders that may exert tremendous influence on the other firms in the chain.
