Management Research Seminar Series

English

This study contributes to our understanding of the dark side of the entrepreneurship/marketing interface in respect of potential unwanted and undesirable behaviour that in certain cases may be detrimental to businesses. It employs a strategy as practice perspective in respect of regional coopetition within New Zealand’s wine sector. Coopetition is: “a dynamic and paradoxical relationship which arises when two companies cooperate together in some areas, such as strategic alliances but simultaneously compete with each other in other areas”.
