Actor-Network Theory and Stakeholder Collaboration: The Case of Slovenia


  • Lea-Marija Colarič-Jakše


This paper aims to reveal the impact of collaborative networking on the tourist satisfaction with integral tourism products. We used exploratory factor analysis and general regression model to test the effects of collaboration between stakeholders on Slovenian tourist destination on the satisfaction of tourists with the integral tourist products. Despite intensive research in this field, there is still a gap in the knowledge about the collaboration between local, regional and national stakeholders in the process of creating integral products. This paper contributes to the debate by investigating the collaborative behavior patterns of stakeholders during the conceptualization of the large project on the planning of comprehensive tourism products. The research shows that collaborative networking, competencies, and leadership facilitate the satisfaction of tourists with comprehensive tourist product on the destination Slovenia. Paper offers the applications for steering committees, marketers and consortia coordinators.
