Business Administration Project Thesis On Knowledge Harvesting

Title:Knowledge Harvesting from International Joint Ventures
Department of Business Administration
About Project:- This dissertation explores and analyses factors which could facilitate Knowledge Harvesting, and also how important it is for the parent companies. Knowledge Harvesting is one of the knowledge processes within an international joint venture network that has not received much attention from the academic community. After relevant review of the literature in the area of international joint ventures and knowledge management, the authors of the dissertation created a model. The model consists of five factors: Motive, Absorptive capacity, Knowledge characteristics, Trust, and Control. Eight hypotheses are formulated in order to test the model. The empirical study is concentrated on Swedish companies involved in an international joint venture with a foreign company. A deductive approach is chosen in order to answer the research questions, and primary data is collected using an online survey. The results of the questionnaire are analysed in a descriptive manner and several conclusions are drawn.
