Speaker Series at the Department of Strategy and Innovation | Prof. Andrew Shipilov


The IfSTO would like to cordially invite you to the upcoming research talk by Andrew SHIPILOV (INSEAD Fontainebleau) Topic: Integrating Research on Inter-Organizational Networks and Ecosystems

Abstract (short):

Organizations are simultaneously embedded in inter-organizational networks and ecosystems, yet research on networks and ecosystems developed in isolation. The aim of this partial integration is to bring new energy into maturing research on organizational networks and greater structure to the burgeoning research on ecosystems. In this article, we underlie similarities and differences between networks and ecosystems; bring the ecosystems' focus on modularity and complementarity at the forefront of inter-organizational research while enriching ecosystems scholarship with systematic applications of network analytic tools to map the patterns of component interdependencies.

Time: Tuesday, 12 November 2019 from 4-5:30 pm
