IMP Group News

February 9th 2015


Our friend and colleague Dave Wilson died on February 1st 2015 after a long illness. Dave was Professor of Marketing at the Smeal School of Business, Pennsylvania State University. He joined the IMP Group in the early 1980s and was closely involved in the development of the IMP 2 project, which culminated in the book, Developing Relationships in Business Networks edited by Hakan Hakansson and Ivan Snehota. Dave brought new skills and insights to the Group and published widely with other members. Dave was active at IMP conferences over many years and hosted the first IMP Conference in the United States at Penn State. His notable publications included the book Business marketing: An interaction and network perspective with Kris Moller, Understanding the Value of a Relationship with S Janatrania and An Integrated Model of Buyer-Seller Relationships in the Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science. This paper has been cited over two thousand times in the literature.

Passing of David T. Wilson

Dave Wilson passed away on February 1, 2015. Dave was a faculty member in the Penn State Marketing Department for over 30 years and held the Alvin J. Clemens Professorship in Entrepreneurial Studies when he retired in 2001. Dave was an active IMP member for more than 20 years. During his long career, he served as the Chair of the Marketing Department and as the academic director of the MBA program, he was the co-founder of the Institute for the Study of Business Markets (ISBM), and he was the founding Editor of the Journal of Business to Business Marketing. Dave chaired over 30 dissertations and his former doctoral students fondly remember him as a caring mentor and dear friend. He was usually the first person into the office in the morning and his joyous attitude and outgoing personality made everyone feel welcome – except, perhaps, opposing players on the hockey rink!

Two IMP-books published as “Routledge Revivals”!
“A fantastic opportunity for you to discover past brilliance and purchase previously out of print and unavailable titles by some of the world’s most eminent academic scholars.” This is how Routledge’s present the “Routledge Revivals” series, in which two IMP books are published:
Industrial Technological Development: A Network Approach, edited by Håkan Håkansson, was first published in 1987, and Håkan Håkansson’s Corporate Technological Behaviour: Co-operation and Networks, was first published in 1989.
In Industrial Technological Development the basic principles of innovation and the role of supplier and customer relationships are discussed, and several case studies on this theme is presented. In Corporate Technological Behaviour: Co-operation and Networks, the theoretical discussion on innovation is illustrated with a detailed study of technological development in interaction among companies and organizations.

IMP Asia

In between two ordinary IMP conferences; the 30th (!) nicely organized in Bordeaux 2014 and the 31st upcoming conference in Kolding, Denmark, the sixth IMP Asia meeting was held at Sanur, Bali, Indonesia December 7-10 2014.

Just a short look at the list of participants of the latter indicates that the interest in the interactive features of the business landscape is widespread: The about 55 participating researchers represented 35 universities and business schools from 15 countries; from New Zeeland, Australia, Japan and Thailand in east over to the US and Canada in west. The geographical spread was also reflected in the variety of presented empirical issues. And the conference location and facilities was just great. Thanks to the work put in by the organizers Fawaz Baddar Althusan and Chavi Fletcher-Chen. And in the background everything was carefully followed up by all ours Peter Batt. In two years time IMP Asia will probably become IMP Africa! When planning your agenda for 2016, remember Capetown in December!
