Omtale Only connect
In a networked economy and society, the connections between individual actors, organizations and entire industries gain more importance than the entities themselves. As the contributions suggest, networks develop somewhat fragile identities that emerge through shared practices and language games. From this perspective networks are an outcome of acts of language use and their organizational practises unfold in and simultaneously constitute these networks. Providing rich empirical examples, the authors are linked by one common thread: how acts of "languaging" and heterogeneous practices contribute to the rice and sometimes fall of networks, and how these networks perform complex tasks shaping organizations, and by extension.
