Abstract: This study investigates the significance of joint ICT projects with foreign partners in the acquisition of knowledge by local personnel in an emerging economy, based on the perspective of individual’s absorptive capacity (i.e., ACAP). The model conceptualizes knowledge acquisition capability as the individual dimension of ACAP and posits differences in prior experience and learning orientation as well as individual’s perception of partner’s support as antecedents to local employees’ abilities to (i) recognize the value of and (ii) assimilate foreign partners’ embedded knowledge. This model was validated by the results of the structural equation modelling, conducted on a cross sectional survey of 205 local team members of joint ICT projects in Malaysia. All the hypothesized relationships were supported, with the exception of that between prior experience and ability to recognize the value of knowledge as well as learning orientation and ability to assimilate knowledge. Accordingly, the theoretical and practical implications of the findings were expatiated, with suggestions offered on the areas for future research. (More)
