Tiivistelmä

Failures of networking attempts are rarely reported in the literature. This study examined an intentionally formed, non-successful case network in its formation phase by using Lowensberg’ holistic conceptual model for strategic alliance issues that links six organizational theories to the network management processes. This empirical study of a whole network at network level involved one survey (n=20) and 61 semi-structured interviews in more than 20 Finnish maritime industry organizations and observations in six workshops, while the network aimed at joint market entry. The paper presents 11 enablers
and six barriers discovered in the networks formation phase. The findings contribute to understanding the enablers and barriers in network formation affecting failure, especially the significance of network strategy formulation and communication to network organizations in intentionally formed networks. Presenting conclusions for academics and managers, the paper fulfils the gap in the literature of whole networks, particularly their failures in their formation
phase.
