Different aspects of business knowledge’s mobility are analysed in the paper. We define business knowledge as action-related skills, and codified messages that contribute to the effective combination of inputs. In other words business knowledge can be explicit at times, but also may appear as highly implicit. The mobility of the factor is extremely important: if it is found that certain elements of business knowledge are immobile, enterprises may only get access to it if they move to regions where it can be found in abundance. The paper shows that the more implicit the business knowledge is, the less mobile it is likely to be. The relative immobility is explained with the special influence of innovation systems. Companies in the Visegrad-countries may also be affected by the phenomenon, as they will also find that the easiest way of getting access to certain elements of business knowledge is by investing in knowledge intensive regions of Central and Eastern Europe.
