Abstract [en]

Cooperation is needed in research and development of new and complex products and processes. The other side of cooperation is competition. In most cases the situation can be described as something in between pure cooperation and pure competition also known as co-opetition The aim with this research is to develop a better understanding of the dynamic of cooperation and competition in product realisation, both on individual, company and macro-level (companies, universities and governments). In empirical research the authors of this article found unobtrusive information about co-opetition in the product realisation process. A literature review has been conducted and different databases have been used to understand co-opetition on different levels - individual, company and macro level. Finally empirical findings concerning cooperation-competition has been reinterpreted. The conclusion from the empirical studies and literature review is that all levels (individual, company and macro level) are important to take into consideration when managing and developing new technology and processes. By better understanding of different forms of collaboration-competition situation at these levels, in the product realisation process, management have the ability to change harmful collaboration-competition situations into more healthy situations and the products reach faster to market.
