Are internal and external sources of knowledge complementary? Focusing on the diversified firm

AuthorsGarcía-Granero, Ana ; Vega Jurado, Jaider

CitationEU-SPRI Conference 2014
AbstractWhether external knowledge sourcing (EKS) and internal knowledge generation (IKG) occur simultaneously or not is still an unresolved question in innovation studies. According to transaction cost theory, external knowledge sourcing and in-house knowledge generation are usually considered as substitutes. The complementarity of EKS and IKG has been mainly supported from the absorptive capacity theory, which states that as firms generate internal knowledge there are higher probabilities for the firm to recognize and acquire external sources of knowledge. We expect that empirical contradictory results could be resolved by understanding what other factors could be affecting this relationship such as product firm’s diversification. We believe that the application of more traditional strategy and management research topics (e.g. corporate diversification) to this research question can contribute to previous literature.
