Abstract

Caused by the non-linearity of some industries such as networking interconnection, the deep understanding of Value Networks has grown in importance. While related works such as Value Network Analysis have been subject to the available qualitative mechanisms, this papers aims at quantifying actor dependencies within Value Networks. To this end, a series of dependency indicators are proposed based on well-established economic principles like Porter’s Five Forces on firms. This approach is validated through a case study analysing the replaceability of Transit Network Service Providers. Finally, an outlook on bargaining strategies based on these dependency indicators is given.
