Handbook of Management Scales/Private benefit, cooperation
Private benefitcooperation (AVE = 0.58; CR = 0.88)
The author (1) adopts a coopetition-based approach in theoretically conceptualizing value creation in interfirm alliances as a construct consisting of three dimensions: common benefit, private benefitcooperation, private benefitcompetition and (2), based on data collected in India, empirically validates a scale to measure these dimensions.
Private benefits refer to gains realized by each alliance partner individually. Private benefitcooperation is defined as private benefits that accrue to a firm as a result of cooperative behavior among the alliance partners (Rai, 201_).
