Density And Strength Of Ties In Innovation Networks: A Competence And Governance View
AbstractThis article studies density and strength of ties in innovation networks. It combines issues of â€˜competenceâ€™ with issues of â€˜governanceâ€™. It argues that in networks for exploration there are good reasons, counter to the thesis of the â€˜strength of weak tiesâ€™, for a dense structure of ties that are strong in most dimensions. In exploitation, there are good reasons for structures that are non-dense, with ties that are strong in other dimensions than in networks for exploration. Evidence is presented from two longitudinal empirical studies of the emergence and development of networks in the multimedia and pharmaceutical biotechnology industries.
