Cooperating with Competitors

The Cooperating with Competitors Masterclass at Leicester Castle Business School looks at the roles and relationships of companies that are changing to a new form of cooperation called coopetition: collaboration with competitors. It will examine how companies manage and capitalise on this new perspective to maximise performance and allow you to gain critical insight into a new form of competition used globally.

Through attending this seminar, you will:

  • Understand how to best manage cooperative relationships with competitors and tensions that can arise
  • Learn key questions you need to ask and answer to successfully use coopetition as a strategy
  • Learn the implications for resources, capabilities and uniqueness
  • Consider business model implications and avoid the learning trap
  • Understand why and how to collaborate with competitors across borders
