    Abstract

    Given the increasing focus on intellectual capital as the most valuable assets
    of many knowledge intensive companies, we might assume that the knowledge
    constituting valuable intellectual capital should ideally be kept secret for
    entities external to the company. This protective logic may, however, inhibit
    companies striving for innovation leadership. In our enquiry into R&D
    knowledge spillover effects on innovation, we develop case studies from
    Fastcar and Bigpack. The resulting theoretical framework, built on selected
    networking and knowledge creation theories, is illustrated through the two
    case studies and useful for further analysis of positive R&D knowledge
    spillover effects.
    By proactively facilitating knowledge sharing with relevant parts of the
    surrounding environment, the company enables itself to feed knowledge into
    its surrounding environment - thereby developing the innovation potential of
    the environment for exploration purposes, and the opportunities to identify
    and to feed knowledge back to the company for exploitation purposes, from the
    same environment.
