Professor Giovanni Battista Dagnino, University of Catania

This paper aims at understanding the interplay between technological and behavioural uncertainties in influencing partner behaviours in strategic alliance contexts. We speculate that, while technological uncertainty is likely to foster co-operative behaviours, behavioural uncertainty is expected to encourage competitive behaviour in alliances. Actually, identifying these uncertainty dimensions and their joint impact, respectively, on competitive, co-operative, and co-opetitive behaviours can help us capture the emergence of co-opetition in a much fine-grained fashion. In our conceptual appreciation, the presence of high technological and behavioural uncertainties and low technological and behavioural uncertainties bring about the emergence of co-opetition. This understanding may in turn facilitate to gain insights into alliance partner behaviours under other forms of uncertainty as well.
