Abstract


The aim of the paper is to present a critical review of the rather scattered literature on network and relational capabilities. Extant studies on relational, alliance and network capability and their theoretical foundations are discussed. A summary of the elements of which the various frameworks have been constructed is presented. Drawing on this, conclusions for future relational and network conceptualizations are made.
