Abstract [en]

In this study, we investigate the conditions under which firms involved in coopetition can mitigate the detrimental effects of experienced paradoxical tension on performance. We propose that the ability of a firm to benefit from the challenging and paradoxical phenomenon of coopetition is contingent upon having a specialized multi-dimensional coopetition capability comprising analytical, emotional, and balancing dimensions. Analysis of multisource, one-year time-lagged data on 173 Swedish firms in the high-tech manufacturing and knowledge intensive services industries show strong support for the moderating role of coopetition capability. Our study contributes by theorizing and operationalizing coopetition capability as a multi-dimensional construct and foregrounding its critical role in helping firms reduce the negative consequences of paradoxical tension while at the same time tapping into its positive energy.
