Unravelling the link between knowledge integration and new product timeliness
This paper examines the impact of knowledge integration on new product timeliness in Chinese high technology firms. The results show that the knowledge integration-new product timeliness connection is contingent on managerial factors (reward system and top management support) and product-based competencies (technical skills adequacy and marketing fit). The findings suggest that reward system, top management support and technical skills moderate the relationship between knowledge integration and new product timeliness. The implications for Chinese high technology firms and further research have been discussed.
