Abstract—This paper is based on the premises that the cooperation between companies in a network has been highlighted as an alternative organizational configuration in response to recent economic and technological changes. This article has analyzed the business cooperation networks from the point of view of its hierarchical structures, its risks and benefits, and afterwards some considerable important actions were proposed. Studies have shown that with well-defined hierarchical structures, the identification of potential risks and benefits may be the way for business cooperation networks to acquire competitive earnings, and also to keep improving its practices and actions.
