At the Interfaces of Governance and Competence Perspectives: Discussing Organisational Choices in the Scottish Biotechnology Cluster.
Over the past few years, the combination of a variety of complementary assets - such as scientific knowledge, technological "know-how", development facilities, and managerial acumen - has been helping many biotechnology firms to grow and bring new product and services to the market place. The focus of this work is on the desirability of different modes of governance in the context of the Scottish biotechnology cluster. The objective is to design theoretical models able to predict organisational choices made by firms seeking access to key complementary assets.
