Title variants

The Potential for Coopetition in Wielkopolska Compared to Selected Voivodeships in Poland

Languages of publication



Coopetition (coopertition) is described from a company’s perspective as a strategy of a syncretic gain of profit, and from the perspective of a region it is a method of ordering the economic processes in such a way as to ensure optimal effectiveness of the whole system. In the literature of the subject this concept is most frequently described in business terms as relations between companies. The object of the present article is a preliminary reconnaissance of Wielkopolska’s potential for coopertition, in other words a presentation of this region against the backdrop of three other wealthiest voivodeships in Poland in virtue of their capacity for coopertition. Existing conditions for the development of this type of interactions are assessed by reference to a set of essential factors suggested in the literature. The fourth position of Wielkopolska among Polish voivodeships in terms of per capita income corresponds roughly to its positions measured using the suggested factors that condition the development of coopetition, even though the potential to coopetition gives the region a slightly higher position than implied by its economic power measured as GDP per capita.
