Learning and Knowledge Management in the Firm
From Knowledge Accumulation to Strategic Capabilities. New Horizons in the Economics of Innovation Series
Strategic management literature has, until now, concentrated on the analysis of how large innovative firms maintain, rebuild, or renew strategic capabilities. This important book illustrates the complex transition process involved as firms accumulate knowledge and develop new types of knowledge management to build the primary strategic capabilities.
The book addresses all areas of the process including how technological capability is initially achieved through to how the firm approaches the international technological frontier. Based on a detailed case-study of a multinational Mexican firm, this insightful book argues that there is no simple progression from the accumulation of technological capability to the management of knowledge as a strategic asset.
The wealth of evidence, analysis and discussion will ensure this work will be of immense value and interest to scholars, researchers, business managers and development economists alike.

What Reviewers Are Saying
`. . . this is a substantive contribution to the literature on capability development, one which breaks new ground on a hitherto little understood aspect of the knowledge management literature: knowledge management issues related with transition stage. . . Few researchers have addressed the full complexity of the transition process of capability development, drawing on such an impressive set of data and over such an extended period of time. By doing so, the book provides a range of new insights into knowledge management issues related with the process of capability development, namely, those related to the organizational knowledge creation within a latecomer firm. It should be read and discussed.' -- Muriela Padua, Journal of Evolutionary Economics
