Resource description

Technological knowledge is often claimed to be context-bound and sticking to localsurroundings. This paper investigates how technological knowledge can be exchanged ininternational subcontractor relationships, using relationship-oriented organizational practices.Five hypotheses concerning such practices are tested. It is shown that the use of relationshiporientedpractices varies with exports and the active development of subcontractors in productand process development activities. Moreover, international development-oriented subcontractorsare more likely to use interpersonal exchange, electronic data interchange and formalizedcontracts than other types of subcontractors. Research implications as well as managerialimplications are derived.
