Abstract

This study looks to further understanding about how important the choice of intermediary can be in supporting policymakers in their regional development activities. Drawing on the resource based view as a framework, the paper provides new insights into resource combinations underpinning the successful creation and expansion of a regional network for knowledge exchange. Through an in-depth study of a partnership of three intermediaries involved in designing and implementing a regional ICT network, our study highlights that policymakers need to consider not only organizational resources of intermediaries, but also the resources of key individuals from those organizations.
