Abstract

This paper reports a qualitative study, conducted at four Japaniese-invested companies in China and Vietnam, about their process of international knowledge transfer in multinational corporations(MNCs). Building on the previous literatures that the MNC knowledge is diverse, sticky and socially embedded, we explore how local actors and foreign managers overcame the knowledge-related barriers and developed the managerial and technical competence in the local subsidiaries. The findings indicated (1) the interplay between knowledge embeddedness and knowledge types (2) the contributions and impact of local knowledge agents and institutions in shaping and determining the appropriate choice of knowledge transfer mechanisms,
