The structural analytical perspective is focused on the role and the position of firms and as such investigates proximity in the inter-firm relationships with emphasis on the categories of structural and relational embeddedness. Both the functional and the structural analytical perspectives contribute to the emergence of a comprehensive picture of the motivations and selfenforcing mechanisms behind networking, and alliance formation, and how firm behaviour, stimulated by business relationships, generates network configurations.

The specialisation within networks is similar to specialisation in organisational hierarchies. The difference between the two is in the coordination mechanism employed in both cases. Equipped with this background and this definition, I would like to take the readers of this book on a journey through those social theories that have made a significant contribution to business network theory. Different sciences have developed different theoretical frameworks and conceptual apparatus. The difficulties of grasping such an interdisciplinary field can be overcome only by efforts to integrate distant fragments of knowledge in order to produce a coherent picture of what business networks are and how they work.

The classic example in Callon’s work is the electric vehicle project, where the technology is assumed to have prescribed which partners were to be involved in the subsequent research and design. This approach misplaces the role of the human actors who create and employ technological artefacts in the first place. At the beginning of any enrolment stands a human act of knowledge construction, which brings to life the entities – technological and socio-cultural artefacts. Non-human elements have no capabilities or power in themselves to enrol other entities.
