Abstract

Using data from 220 international high technology strategic alliances, we question the extent to which knowledge transfer intensity between partners is monotonic (subject to ever-increasing returns) in its relationship with strategic alliance performance. We find different types of knowledge transfer (knowledge generation and knowledge application) interact differently with strategic alliance performance. As an extension to this, we observe that these effects are moderated by relational exchange conditions (trust and relationship commitment) between alliance partners, although not always in the hypothesized direction. Finally, we identify non-linear relationships between both knowledge generation and knowledge application, and strategic alliance performance but find that these are specified in different directions. Our findings point to the complex and varied effects of different types of knowledge transfer on strategic alliance performance.
