Organizing to gain from interaction with customers: the role of organizational practices for absorptive and innovative capacities

Speaker: Nicolai J Foss
Copenhagen Business School

29 March 2006 - From 14h00 to 15h30

We address how organizational practices may leverage the knowledge absorption from customers in the context of innovation. We focus on practices that enhance communication and knowledge sharing between management and employees and between departments, and on pecuniary rewards for engaging in knowledge sharing. Such complementary practices leverage knowledge absorption and lead to higher innovative capacity. Thus, we identify some of the organizational dimensions of absorptive capacity that are needed to benefit from user interaction. The hypotheses are tested on a dataset drawn from a survey of 169 Danish private firms which was implemented in 2001 among a sample of the 1000 largest Danish manufacturing and service firms.
