Abstract [en]

Extan tliterature on knowledge flows within the MNC network is largely preoccupiedwith the existing headquarters-subsidiary relations, leaving aside those partsand subsidiaries of the MNC that are underexplored and remote to suchactivities. The present paper devotes some attention to the limitations ofcurrent theory and extends it by introducing the need for managerial attention.Thus, the aim of the paper is to explain the role of managerial attention inexploiting the prospect of knowledge transfer from subsidiaries located indeveloping countries. Lack of attention may cause barrier in knowledge transferand consequently remoteness of subsidiaries from the MNC knowledge network. This paper further explains the reasons for the lack of managerialattention.
