Abstract


Organisations cannot avoid coping with change. Through their relationships, organisationsare continuously exposed to change and, at the same time, generate change. This paperdiscusses change and dynamics in business relationships and highlights the processual casestudy approach, which allows researchers to study and understand change and dynamics moreprofoundly.
