The decision to make or buy a critical technology: semiconductors at Ericsson, 1980–2010
2010 (English)In: Industrial and Corporate Change, ISSN 0960-6491, E-ISSN 1464-3650, Vol. 19, no 2, 431-464 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article considers the decisions to outsource and re-integrate the development of critical and innovative technologies. It documents a historical sequence of choices made by strategists within a high-tech company, Ericsson. The evidence discussed indicates that a broad range of different factors were taken into consideration and that the influential people made a point of running different kinds approaches to outsourcing in parallel. Re-integration occurred when the structures put in place by collaborating firms did not sustain innovation.
