Change in a business network is understood through processes, which are often unpredictable and develop in an irregular manner. Handling change in a network involves a process of joint actions between technological, business and other actors in order to succeed. This notion of process needs to be extended with a relevant temporal lens that elaborates how joint activity and processes proceed. The conceptual paper offers a dynamic approach to scrutinize and develop current understanding about change and development in networks.
