Prioritizing Knowledge Transfer Conditions for Innovation Ecosystems: A Mixed-Method Approach

Abstract : Open innovation ecosystems rely upon inter-organisational knowledge transfer to support co-creation. Despite the significance of this process, and an abundance of open innovation research, empirical investigation and discussion of diverse knowledge transfer conditions across open innovation ecosystems remains unaddressed within existing literature. Using a mixed-method approach, this study investigates how knowledge, firm, and partner-relationship characteristics affect the successful exchange of knowledge between ecosystem partners. Interpretive Structural Modelling was employed to ascertain expert opinions regarding the interrelations between the transfer conditions. The combinatory nature of these conditions, and their integration into solutions for success, was further explored utilizing fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis. Results indicate that conditions for knowledge transfer success are highly interrelated and co-dependent. Limitations and implications are discussed.
