Abstract

Depicts a path to follow when studying longitudinal change processes in distribution systems. The objective is met by linking a network approach to marketing systems with the area of organization theory focusing on the dynamic ideas behind loosely coupled systems. Research implications point out the importance of a more varied view of the properties of marketing systems. Basically theoretical and restricted to general conceptual discussions.
