Abstract

There have been many studies on technological learning, especially as it relates to the latecomer firms from developing countries. However, unlike the current literature, this study argues that in order to overcome various challenges in technological learning, close interaction between the learner and the technology's originator (i.e., tutor) is needed. Based on the tutorials, which begins with the diagnosis of the learner's initial capabilities, the learning firms are able to set a higher standard for learning, making them more successful and efficient. The article, which is based on the case study of two firms involved in original equipment manufacture (OEM), shows that the effectiveness of technological learning is determined to a great extent by the technology originator's tutorials. A simple analytical framework is presented to explain why this is so. This study also attempts to contribute to the growing literature on international production network, with OEM as its modality.
