Reverse Technology Diffusion: On the Diffusion of Technological Capabilities from Advanced Foreign Subsidiaries to Headquarters of the MNC
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Business Studies.
2009 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This paper examines longitudional patterns in the diffusion of technological capabilities from advanced foreign subsidiaries to headquarters. Hypotheses are developed concerning the overall pace of diffusion of technological capabilities from advanced foreign subsidiaries to headquarters, as well as differences in the pace of diffusion between capabilities emerging in either greenfield or acquired advanced foreign subsidiaries. Cox's regression analysis drawing upon the complete patenting activity by 23 Swedish multinationals over the 1893-1990 period reveals increased pace of diffusion of technological capabilities from advanced foreign subsidiaries to headquarters. The findings also indicate that the pace of diffusion is faster for acquired advanced foreign subsidairies than for greenfield advanced foreign subsidiaries. Implications for strategy and management of the MNC are discussed.
