This research aims to understand inter-subsidiary innovation transfers from a fine-grained perspective. Having transfer performance as the key outcome variable, we examine this issue with particular interest in the influence of subsidiary business networks, i.e. internal network in MNCs and external networks with local counterparts. The significance of subsidiary business networks, though has been identified in IB literature, is still under-scrutinized at project-level performance. Utilizing the data of 129 inter-subsidiary transfer projects, the results suggest that the counterparts from different subsidiary business networks affect transfer performance distinct moderating patterns.
