Title
Should I stay or should I go? A qualitative analysis of legitimacy in a shared participant governed network
Author
Abstract
This article investigates how legitimacy can be improved in a shared participant type of network governance. These networks are governed by their members and are very common in the field of service organizations. Legitimacy refers to the extent to which a network can convince organizations that the network is valuable. Respondents affiliated with both participating and non-participating organizations are interviewed. The article concludes that strategies such as informational exchange, the improvement of network-level competencies and conflict resolution are crucial for increasing the legitimacy of shared participant governance.
