International Innovation and Strategic Initiatives: A Research Agenda

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract Despite the argument that to leverage the expertise of foreign subsidiaries to the global firm is beneficial to the whole firm's competitive advantage, in the case of international innova-tion, such leverage does hardly take place. We investigate into this paradox, applying re-search on strategic initiatives to the context of international R&D. Developing a conceptual model on the basis of communication psychology, we analyse how the innovatory expertise of R&D subsidiaries can be leveraged to the global firm. Thus, we determine six elements the greater exploration of which can lead to a deeper understanding of how the innovatory exper-tise of a foreign R&D subsidiary may be leveraged to the global firm.
