Abstract

The purposefulness of the conducted research presented in this article results from the need to learn about the degree of involvement of enterprises as well as factors affecting the level of cooperation of business entities belonging to a common business network. In the article, an attempt was made to specify the determinants for the development of cooperation of partner companies with the network leader, dependent upon the degree of cooperation as well as development stages of a partner company within the business network. Empirical research results were preceded by theoretical introduction with regard to the concerned issue referring to the characteristics of network relations. The research results were presented based on the conducted interviews with employees of the business network leader, analysis of the documents of the enterprise, as well as own observations in the period of three months of stay in the audited unit belonging to the IT sector. The analysis of expectations of enterprises cooperating with the network leader was obtained with the use of the survey questionnaire sent electronically to the owners or members of the Board of Directors of the examined entities.
