The (Vertical) Network Firm as a Political Coalition: The Reorganization of Fiat Auto

Josh Whitford, Francesco Zirpoli
2009 Social Science Research Network  
Analyzing this evolution and these relations from a "political" perspective allows us to better understand the behavior not merely of particular firms, but also of interacting networks of firms in a world  ...  We argue that this evolution cannot adequately be understood without reference to an interplay of inter-and intra-firm relations, including especially to the spilling of intraorganizational rivalries across  ...  It had been an almost impossible situation.  ...
