Bookmark and Share

This project examines and looks at aspects that may facilitate Knowledge Harvesting, and in addition how essential it’s for the parent companies. Knowledge Harvesting is probably the knowledge processes inside an international joint venture network which has not got much interest from the academic community. After relevant analysis of the books in the area of international joint ventures and knowledge management, the writers of the project made a model. The model includes 5 factors: Motive, Absorptive capacity, Knowledge characteristics,Trust, and Control. Eight hypotheses are developed to be able to analyze the model.

A deductive approach is selected so as to answer the research queries, and primary data is gathered with an online survey. The outcomes of the questionnaire are analysed in a detailed manner and a few findings are drawn…
