This article describes the formation and forward planning of an important and independent transnational best practice networking development project, i.e. ECUANET. ECUANET's aims are to track and disseminate the evolutions and revolutions that are taking place in the creative management of corporate universities and small and medium enterprise academies. Both categories are referred to in the text as corporate academies. The article describes how and why this transnational network has been originated by a combined group of professional practitioners and national level clusters of corporate universities. It illustrates how it is intended that it should grow in the future as a thematic social community dedicated to the creation and appreciation of leading edge corporate academy knowledge. It describes the planning of sequential and interlinked work package activities to be shared by its members in building a sustainable transnational network. Additionally, it addresses the choice of case research reference architecture and the conduct of related thematic action research processes to be employed in defining world class best practice standards in corporate academy management
