Abstract [en]

The purpose of the present study is to describe the process of integrating knowledge created during joint product development projects involving medium sized manufacturing firms, and to find some early factors that can promote success in the integration process. Knowledge integration can be described as spirals within the partners and the alliance network that must interact in order to promote successful integration. On an operational level a technological infrastructure, an organizational infrastructure, and cultural factors can be identified to support the integration. This paper presents a framework for how to analyze the process of knowledge integration when outsourcing new product development (NPD). A case study of six Swedish manufacturing firms, in different industries, was conducted. Results indicate that a culture with high expectations on the potential of the cooperation is the most important part for high integration. Still most firms offer technological and organizational infrastructure without emphasizing the culture of integration.
