Abstract

In order to provide a more detailed understanding of the implications of transferring knowledge in product creation networks, we need a more detailed picture of motivations and consequences of such knowledge transfer for different stakeholders. In this paper we present first results of an interview study within seven industrial goods designers and manufacturers. Aiming at a description beyond the catchphrases provided by literature so far, a detailed insight into motivations and consequences of knowledge transfer for those who divulge, receive or use product creation knowledge is provided.

Keywords: knowledge transfer, interview study, qualitative approach, bottom-up analysis
