A network is made up of nodes and links. The smallest unit that consists of both of these network elements is a dyad made up of two nodes (a buyer and a supplier) and the link that connects them (a buyer-supplier relationship). Naturally, the focus of the supply chain management literature has been on this dyad. However, we argue that a dyad is not the smallest unit of a network. In fact, the smallest unit is a triad, made up of three nodes and three links.
