This paper investigates how relationship embeddedness in MNC subsidiaries’ corporateand external networks influences the contribution of innovation transfer to the recipientsubsidiary’s business performance. OLS regressions using data on the intra-MNC transferof 224 innovations indicate that the embeddedness of a subsidiary’s relationships in thecorporate and external network positively affects the received innovation’s contribution tobusiness performance. More detailed analysis demonstrates that the positive link betweena subsidiary’s embeddedness in the external network and the contribution to businessperformance of receiving an innovation is negatively affected when the innovation isunique compared with other innovations on the market.
