This study clarifies cooperation and compliance in non-equity alliances. Partial least squares structural equation modeling findings show how social interaction and risk-based reasoning are both facets of interorganizational decision making. In line with the notion that behaviors follow intentions, partners' risk-taking tendencies (i.e., intentions to cooperate) and compliance tendencies both explain the effort that partners devote to an alliance.
