Abstract

Knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS) have been posited to play a critical role as innovation agent and knowledge broker in the new economy. While a substantial part of the literature on KIBS stresses their function as an innovation agent to their clients' innovation process and their contributions to knowledge transfer and diffusion in innovation systems, little attention has been paid to the internal innovation dynamics of KIBS firms.
