The Negative Effects of Embeddedness and Companies Relations - the Aspect of Local and International Activity
Languages of publication
The article of this paper is to present a conceptualization of potential negative effects resulting from companies embeddedness in both local and international networks of relations. The article applies the concept of embeddedness and the network approach to the analysis of companies local and international activities. The article's main contribution is the analyses of companies from the perspective of the level of embeddedness of their activities both in local and global business networks, regardless if they are active or not on international markets. Those dependencies are accompanied by both positive and negative effects. The negative effects related to two types of entities (suppliers and competitors) are analyzed.
