Knowledge Flow in the Open Innovation Model - The Effects of ICT Capacities and Open Innovation Practices on Knowledge Streams

Abstract : The open innovation model (OI) allows high-tech firms to enhance internal R&D capabilities by acquiring knowledge from external sources (inward knowledge flow), as well as to maximize earnings by using external paths to market for internally generated knowledge (outward knowledge flow). To accomplish this, OI firms capitalize on a set of OI practices and specific technology to facilitate the inward and outward flow of knowledge. In this study, we argue that the OI practice dimensions have direct effect on the knowledge flow. Using the media synchronicity theory, we argue that a set of ICT capacities moderate these effects. A causal model to explain the relationships between the variables is proposed.
