Technology partnerships are seen as a key element both in knowledge creation for technological development itself and in leveraging the value of technological knowledge (Bidault & Cummings, 1994; Teece, 1987; Ford, 1998). Complementary knowledge is generally regarded as a source for competitiveness (Doz & Hamel, 1998; Powell, 1998; Nahapiet & Ghoshal, 2000). Potentially, the focus on core competencies enables relatively stronger competitiveness (cumulative learning, focused use of critical resources) and ability to gain synergistic benefits and scale by leveraging different knowledge bases and networks (Miles, 2000; Blomqvist, 2002).
