ACE research vignette 014 : how does networking contribute to the bottom line? - The value of purpose-driven networking

By Martie-Louise Verreynne, Sarel Gronum and Timothy Kastelle

Abstract

This series of research vignettes is aimed at sharing current and interesting research findings from our team and other international researchers. In this vignette, Dr Martie-Louise Verreynne from the University of Queensland Business School summaries the findings from a paper written in conjunction with Sarel Gronum and Tim Kastelle from the UQ Business School that examined if networking really contributes to small firms' bottom line. Their findings show that unless networks are used for productive means, efforts to cultivate and maintain them may be wasteful
