Abstract:Coopetition, a phenomenon which occurs when firms cooperate and compete at the same time, received growing attention in the past decades. Coopetitive firms can share knowledge with each other, but will only do so if it creates a return; value. In this literature study, the focus lies on the value creation caused by coopetitive supply based knowledge sharing. A distinction will be made between supply based operational knowledge sharing and supply based innovation knowledge sharing. For both types of sharing, the possible value creation, risk and risk mitigation strategies will be analyzed to construct a framework, explaining the relationship between coopetitive supply based knowledge sharing and value creation. This paper shows that supply based operational knowledge sharing results in lowering inventory and reducing the bullwhip effect and supply based operational knowledge sharing results in standard setting and improving innovative outcomes. The framework can be used by firms to assess their coopetitive supply based knowledge sharing to enlarge their value creation while mitigating risks.
