Title: Organising new product development
Knowledge hollowing-out and knowledge integration
Author: Becker, Markus C.; Zirpoli, Francesco
Abstract: The paper analyses the organization of the new product development process at FIAT from a resource-based perspective. The focus is on organizational resources for integrating dispersed specialist knowledge required in the development of complex products. The analysis shows how the application of a resource-based perspective is able to uncover negative long-term effects of outsourcing on the knowledge base (hollowing out), despite beneficial short-term effects on cost.
