Abstract

This paper presents the findings from a qualitative study on the extent to which three dimensions of proximity – geographic, cognitive, and organisational – impact knowledge transfer and innovation post-merger and acquisition (M&A). Findings show that the elements of proximity substantially influence both knowledge transfer and innovation although the nature of the impact varies and is influenced by the type of management interventions or lack thereof post-M&A.
