Knowledge creation in new product development projects


Schulze, Anja; Hoegl, Martin (2006). Knowledge creation in new product development projects. Journal of Management, 32(2):210-236.

Abstract

In this article, the authors develop and test hypotheses relating the four knowledge creation modes of socialization, externalization, combination, and internalization as performed during the concept and the development phases of new product development projects to new product success. Using data from 94 new product development projects, they find that socialization during the concept phase and combination during the development phase are positively related to new product success but that externalization during the concept phase as well as socialization and internalization during the development phase are negatively related to new product success. Implications for theory and practice are discussed.
