The constantly changing structure of market competition as well as the turbulently developing environment require new approach to create its competitiveness. Today successful enterprises have to realise that they should compete in a way that enhances rather than undercuts inter-firm cooperation. The point of the current company shape-up boom is to achieve the value that comes when the whole adds up to more than the sum of the parts. The paper is an attempt to point out the influence of inter-firm cooperation on the enterprise competitiveness.
