Firms and their managers typically have more experience of certain business networks, and one important challenge is to understand that different network situations require different approaches. In order to use networks as a means of their business development, actors have to be able to analyse different network situations and their roles in different networks. First, the development of closed, vertical and rather hierarchical supplier networks focuses on the operation models of the network. Second, the development of more open horizontal networks between equal partners focuses on continuous development, joint problem solving and learning between network actors. Third, the development of multidimensional innovation networks focuses on emergent strategies and the interpretation of the future business opportunities of network actors.
