Managing interorganisational links in sporting goods industries – the case of sailing clusters

Abstract

Manufacturers of sailing equipment tend to be co-located in clusters (Chetty, 2004; Gerke & Benson-Rea, 2012; Glass & Hayward, 2001; Sarvan et al., 2012). Location-specific factors attract these firms and other sport cluster stakeholders (e.g., service providers, specialised media, professional sport). Co-located universities and governing bodies can become stakeholders of sailing clusters after discovering the economic impact and innovation potential of the co-located firms (Gerke, Desbordes, & Dickson, 2014). The interorganisational setting of sailing clusters requires firms to develop strategies determining interaction with their environment (Warren, 1967).
