International knowledge transfer in acquisitions

Author: Bresman, Henrik ; Birkinshaw, Julian ; Nobel, RobertINSEAD Area: Organisational BehaviourIn: Journal of International Business Studies, vol. 30, no. 3, September 1999 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 439-462.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask us for this itemAbstract: This paper reports on a multi-method study of knowledge transfer in international acquisitions. Using questionnaire data we show that the transfer of technological know-how is facilitated by communication, visits and meetings, and by time elapsed since acquisition, while the transfer of patents is associated with the articulability of the knowledge, the size of the acquired unit, and the recency of the acquisition. Using case study data, we show that the immediate post-acquisition period is characterized by imposed one-way transfers of knowledge from the acquirer to the acquired, but over time this gives way to high-quality reciprocal knowledge transfer
