Abstract: Coopetition is considered a win-win strategy as firms engaged in coopetition could build on each-other's resources, share technological and market risks, address common opportunities and challenges, and therefore create value for each other. However, managers engaged in coopetition face numerous challenges due to high tension created by opposing forces of competition and collaboration. Firms that can understand and effectively manage tension are likely to develop mutually beneficial relationships and would create value for each other and could subsequently enhance their performance. Members of this panel will share their research regarding how coopetition tension impacts managers and how managers develop and pursue various approaches to deal with such tension.
