Lit review Intro: The literature review will focus on the nature of ties on both nonprofit organizations and for-profit organizations. Specifically the formal and informal types of network relationships. Some studies claim that nonprofit organizations will have more formal relationships than for-profit organizations and some claim the opposite is true. The reasoning behind both theories are sound and founded in studies but each focuses on differing aspects of the organizations and how they contribute to one type of relationship over the other. The goal of this literature review is to study papers previously published on the topic of the nature of relationships and understand the evidence attributed to each theory. I uploaded 3 sources, but I can only use at most 2 of them, and the other 2 need to be found again. Essays need to pass SafeAssign checks.
