This paper longitudinally explores the technology positioning strategies, i.e. block membership or non-block membership, in interorganizational networks that maximize innovative performance. Hence, we will derive some basic propositions on the effect of block membership on innovative performance under various network evolutionary conditions, i.e. structure reinforcing or structure-loosening developments in the industry. Empirical testing is performed on the microelectronics industry from 1980-2000.
