Transforming cooperation practices into individual routines: an analysis of firms inserted in cooperation networks

Gabriela Beltrame, Breno Augusto Diniz Pereira


This research study aims to identify new organizational routines practiced by firms that are members of horizontal interorganizational networks as a result of knowledge acquired through cooperation. Based on the study by Provan, Fish and Sydow (2007), four different ways to share knowledge in a network are proposed. The method is an exploratory, qualitative approach through a multi-case study. The units of analysis are ten firms that are members of two supermarket networks. In-depth interviews with managers were performed and analyzed by content analysis. This research study brings empirical and theoretical contributions, shedding light on how shared knowledge in a network can transform and develop companies,allowing small details and simple information to contribute to companies’ growth and permanence in the market.
