One such precondition is the existence of a good educational infrastructure in a market and a second, which to an extent follows, is the availability of skilled manpower required to manage new knowledge networks. However, as a result of the rapid globalisation of business and commerce, MNCs, with a few exceptions, are now finding it more difficult to sustain meaningful knowledge bases in dispersed geographical territories.

It is well known that most companies aim to impart the latest technology into their products and services, based entirely on superior market knowledge and marketing leadership. This would not be possible if scientists and marketers did not work in cohesive harmony. Buckley’s exhortation to CEOs and senior managers to beware of R&D personnel is likely to make the latter more defensive and unproductive, as has been the experience of most companies who have sought to ‘control’ R&D and its costs.
