Nell’attuale contesto economico, complesso e mutevole, l’adozione di comportamenti innovativi assume un’importanza crescente per le imprese. Essa presuppone la disponibilità di risorse cognitive, che può essere agevolata dall’attivazione di legami inter-organizzativi. Il supporto alla nascita ed al potenziamento delle attività collaborative tra le imprese, in special modo se operanti in un’area territoriale circoscritta, rappresenta uno dei compiti più importanti per gli attori istituzionali territoriali. Il presente lavoro intende valutare il ruolo delle Associazioni Imprenditoriali nel favorire l’orientamento collaborativo delle imprese finalizzato all’innovazione. Adottando la prospettiva teorica della knowledge-based view e applicando la Social Network Analysis e la regressione logistica, l’analisi evidenzia l’efficacia di un’azione - progetto di apprendimento esperienziale - promossa dall’Associazione Imprenditoriale oggetto di studio nel supportare lo sviluppo dell’orientamento collaborativo delle imprese coinvolte nella ricerca. Essa evidenzia, inoltre, come ad una diversa natura delle relazioni (amicale, commerciale, tecnico-specialistica) tra le suddette imprese corrisponda una diversa tipologia di comportamento innovativo. La discussione dei risultati, le implicazioni pratiche per le Associazioni Imprenditoriali e per le imprese, e l’individuazione delle traiettorie future di sviluppo della ricerca concludono il presente lavoro pionieristico.
