Learning By Hiring or Hiring to Avoid Learning? Organizational Exploration via Individuals' Exploitation

25 May 2005 - From 16h30 to 18h00

Management scholars have long recognized that exploitative search tends

to “crowd out” exploratory search in an organization, with potentially negative results for performance. One pro-posed

mechanism by which managers may avoid such crowding out is the hiring of new employ-ees to inject variability into the

organization. In the innovation literature, studies have found changes in an organization's search behavior after hiring new

scientists. These results have been interpreted as evidence of learning-by-hiring. Yet these studies do not examine whether

the knowledge base or search behavior of an organization's existing scientists are affected by the new hire (i.e.,

exploration), or whether the observed changes are simply driven by the hired scientist's continuing her research trajectory

within the hiring firm (i.e., exploitation).
