عنوان مقاله [English]
Formation of strategic collaboration is process influenced by the political behavior because of the multiplicity of stakeholders and political action among them. This study aims to investigate the political foundation of decision making by focusing on the role of political skill and political environment on political behavior. To achieve this goal, the data is gathered based on random sampling of 68 market-based strategic collaborations between start-ups across the country. The impact of political skill and political environment is analyzed in political behavior related to decision-making with intermediate role of social capital and moderating role of political will. The findings of research indicates how political elements interact to each other in order to influence in social decision-making which is rooted in the origins of decision theory and the social influence theory. Political skills leads to positive political behavior in decision-making associated with the formation of strategic collaboration directly and through the creation of social capital while the political environment provides political bed-destructive behavior. In addition, actual results confirm moderating role of political will on the political skills in direct contact with the political behavior.
