The impact of past performance and network heterogeneity on knowledge creation ——a central network position isn't enough

ZHANG Hua;LANG Chun-gang;Huaqiao University,College of Business Administration;Xidian University,School of Economic & Management;  
Contrasting views exist on how network structure predict knowledge creation.Basing on theoretical analysis this paper argues that network usually is viewed as opportunity agency and information agency in previous research.In consideration of the difference in seizing the opportunity and the essence of innovation,this problem may be resolved by introducing past performance and network heterogeneity.Using 11 years longitudinal data from patent collaboration in US biology technology,the paper investigates the effect of central network position and moderating effects of past performance and network heterogeneity.The results suggest network centrality has positive effects on knowledge creation.As past performance increases,the effect of centrality on knowledge creation increases.Network heterogeneity has a negative effect on this moderating relation.This paper contributes to a better understanding of actor's knowledge creation mechanism,and provides some suggestions to social network theory.
