Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we focus on coopetition (i.e., simultaneous cooperation and competition between firms) as a manifestation of paradox at an inter-firm level, and develop an understanding of the resulting tension that comprises ambivalent cognitions, emotions, and their interplay. We suggest that tension is most productive when maintained at a moderate level, and for that firms need to develop a multi-level operating capability. Our theory provides novel and useful insights to advance the research on paradoxes at an inter-firm and organizational levels.
