Editorial IMP 11,3 Interaction in business relationships and its consequences This third issue of the journal in 2017 consists of seven papers with a common thread to explore interaction processes in business relationships and how interaction processes affect economic policies and managerial approaches. All the three topics are much debated in recent IMP research, reported also in prior issues of this journal. The first three papers deal with the theoretical foundations of the interactive business relationships and offer three focused perspectives on interaction processes going on between companies in business relationships. Drawing on original empirical data, the three studies examinecompetencetransferinbusinessrelationships, analysis of interaction episodes and business models in business networks. The three studies deal with the topics less present in the recent IMP research and add thus to the conceptualization of interaction in business relationships. The first is a case study of the Danish wind mill network, looking into the issue of integrating and transferring competences in business networks. It approaches the issue under the heading of “brokerage” and related transfer mechanisms of bonding, bridging and protecting. In the second paper, the author reviews how interaction episodes in business relationships have been conceptualized.
