Abstract

Project networks have been identified as dynamic organizational forms which are reproduced by sets of project-based actor relationships. Project networks allow for the external pooling of resources and thereby help reconcile the managerial needs for stability and flexibility as well as exploitation and exploration in project business. How project networks are managed is examined for the case of a major German TV production company by using tools and measures from structural network analysis.
