Abstract:In this study, knowledge integration (KI) is all the activities by which an organization identifies, acquires, and utilizes external knowledge. While crucial for organizations that develop new products, KI is a complex process that is not well understood in both research and practice. In research, we observe that the body of knowledge on KI is fragmented rather than accumulated and that there is no shared view on KI. In practice, we observe that it is difficult for practitioners to grasp the complexity and coherence of KI, which hinders KI problem solving.
