Abstract

As organizations grow increasingly dependent on their technology development capabilities, effective management of technology development projects has become a crucial capability.

Although a variety of perspectives—control, leadership and management championship, and institutional linkages—have been invoked to explain technology development performance, a theoretical explanation for the mechanisms through which these relationships materialize has neither been articulated nor empirically tested. The objective of this paper is to build on an emerging knowledge-based perspective to develop and test an explanatory model for the influence of interunit linkages on technology development performance.

Keywords: knowledge integration, technology development
