Current Paper: Governance Models of R&D Offshoring: Innovation Performance and the moderating role of Absorptive Capacity (with Vivien Procher and Diemo Urbig)
The globalization of business functions has led to an increase in offshoring of R&D. Firms’ offshoring models of R&D include captive offshoring (foreign R&D spending to affiliates) and offshore outsourcing (foreign R&D spending to external partners). For 2,421 R&D-active German enterprises we examine how captive offshoring and offshore outsourcing affect their innovation performance during 2005-2011. Based on transaction cost economics we predict qualitatively different effects on innovation performance for the two distinct governance models of R&D offshoring. We find a U-shaped relationship between captive offshoring and innovation performance, but an inverse U-shaped relationship between offshore outsourcing and innovation performance. Furthermore, we find that absorptive capacity amplifies the performance-benefits of R&D offshoring in the case of both governance models.
