Concealing or Revealing? Alternative Paths to Secondary Innovation

Sammanfattning

While scholars increasingly make a distinction between primary and secondary innovation, there is still little consensus about how secondary innovation is created. One line of research emphasizes knowledge concealing, concluding that a focal firm should strive to recycle knowledge within the company, but limit other actors’ to access firm-specific knowledge. Another line, however, provides the contradictory argument, suggesting that firms enhance secondary innovation by selectively revealing knowledge to outsiders. The aim of this paper is to analyze the conditions under which the seemingly contradictory models apply. We identify two industry-level factors – imitation pace and network effects – and we introduce and elaborate on the firm-level factor generative uncertainty to explain alternative paths to secondary innovation in markets where both imitation pace and network effects are high.
