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