(Porto Alegre) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.305-340. ISSN 1413-2311.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1413-2311068201239395.

The cooperation networks among organizations are strategies used by the managers to act in the Market to gather more value to companies and obtain competitive advantage. However, empirically is possible to verify that there is a significant number of companies leaving the networks in which they were inserted. Thus, this study aims to identify the determinant factors which lead to companies leaving the interorganizational networks they used to take part in. Therefore, a quantitative study was conducted with 140 companies belonging to cooperation networks in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. To data collection a questionnaire was used, it was structured in 15 different dimensions, each one composed of 5 questions. The data was tabulated in na Excel spreadsheet and then analyzed through the software AMOS 18. The results have confirmed as determinant factors to companies exit the networks the Previous Weak Social Ties, Bad Partners Selection, Individualized Management, Lack of Confidence and Commitment, Low Interorganizational Learning, among others. The determinant factors evaluated in this research emphasize the difficulty found about the governance structures and management in networks. The challenge is to organize the network in a way to avoid possible disorders coming from the managing decisions and reduce the problems identified in this study, in order to maintain the companies in the network, creating return and competitive advantages to those.
