Contextualising the role of external partnerships to innovate the core and enabling processes of an organisation: A resource and knowledge-based view

Fernandes, Kiran Jude and Milewski, Simon and Chaudhuri, Atanu and Xiong, Yu (2022) 'Contextualising the role of external partnerships to innovate the core and enabling processes of an organisation: A resource and knowledge-based view.', Journal of Business Research, 144 . pp. 146-162.

Abstract

The knowledge-based view (KBV) theory argues that organisations gain a competitive advantage by adopting strategies to capitalise on their knowledge resources, e.g., organisational culture, managerial decision-making and innovative new processes. Large organisations partner with external technology suppliers to develop such technology-driven processes. However, within the context of large organisations, there remains a lack of insight into the motivation and structures of how and why large organisations collaborate with external partners to create such technology-driven processes. To explore the identified problem of understanding the collaborating mechanisms that contribute to technology-driven process innovation in large manufacturing organisations, we analyse and develop inductive concepts using multiple data points. Our research illustrates that external technology partners act as a mediating influence in process-innovation projects by contributing to the capabilities or capacity of an organisation.
