This paper focuses on management in different types of strategic business nets. Firstly, the paper illustrates three different ideal types of business nets: stable, incremental and emerging value systems. Secondly, it examines management and organizing issues in these cases to find out whether managerial practices differ between the ideal types. Finally, the results of the case analysis are compared to theoretical assumptions of the ideal types. Key words: Business networks, network management, case illustrations
