This paper investigates the common ground between two apparently contrasting approaches to the understanding of organizational purchasing behavior; stochastic modelling and the IMP (or "markets as networks") approach. These two schools of inquiry have travelled along parallel tracks for many years but there has never been a systematic attempt to analyse the ontological, epistemological and methodological similarities between them. We present a coherent theoretical framework to investigate the common ground between stochastic modelling and IMP and demonstrate that the two approaches offer complementary insights that can and should be exploited in the context of research into organizational purchasing behavior.
