This paper explores two questions; first, which relationships are relatively more important for New Product Development processes and through which mechanisms is knowledge transferred? Recent research has either focused on a general broad view relying on survey data or a more in-depth approach, which allows for detailed mapping of the underlying processes, but with no possibility of drawing more general conclusions. The data sources that are drawn upon in this study combines these two data sources. The findings show that relationships with external partners are important at the early stages of the product development processes, whereas in the later stages only competitors contribute positively to innovative success. Moreover, depending upon the organizational form different mechanisms and potential problems can be identified.
