Hudson, R. (2004) 'Analysing network partnerships.', Public management review., 6 (1). pp. 75-94.
Support for the notion of networks is growing rapidly across Europe, especially in the public sector where faith in market and hierarchy is diminishing. However, the concept is still loosely interpreted and variably applied. This article unpacks the concept of network and goes on to suggest that a useful model for application to a 'whole systems' approach is Ken Benson's neglected framework of an 'inter-organisational network'. It urges application of the framework to specific contexts and issues.
