- This paper presents a model of behaviour in strategic alliances, the iterated assurance game model with an exit option. From the literature review and the derived model, several hypotheses are proposed and then tested using Wilcoxon rank sum tests. Data was collected from self-administered questionnaires sent to emails of manufacturing firms in Russia. Results show there is no leadership effect on cooperation in dyadic alliances. Results also show that firms with high opportunity costs are more cooperative than firms with low opportunity costs. These results corroborate previous theoretical findings but challenge previous studies in laboratory experiments. They also suggest new avenues for further research on alliance partners’ behaviour.
