Abstract:

This paper describes the contour of the global networks in terms of interorganizational alliances in the telecommunication industry. It focuses on how an individual telecommunication firm is linked with others. The results of the centrality analysis revealed that most of the US and UK telecommunication companies were the most central actors, controlling the volume of networking in the interorganizational network. A cluster analysis also showed that the interorganizational alliance was partly clustered based on both geographical region and types of industries.geographical factors. With regard to the formation of blocks in the network, the results of blockmodelling showed that interorganizational structure of the global telecommunication network was divided into several linkage blocks based on relational similarity among telecommunication firms.
