Abstract

Under the strategic paradigm of open innovations, the function of external knowledge search in innovative enterprises innovation has been concerned. Research mainly discusses the effect on technical innovation from the aspects of local/crossover search or knowledge search. With questionnaire survey, 482 valid copies of questionnaire are collected in this study, and Hierarchical Regression is applied to test the hypotheses. The research findings reveal the remarkably positive effects of supplier-driven search and science-driven search on management innovation adoption, insignificant effects of compete-driven search on management innovation adoption, and moderation effects of knowledge integration capacity on the relationship between supplier-driven search and management innovation adoption. It provides theoretical reference for enterprises to confirm the knowledge search strategies.
