Knowledge transfer can be defined as a process of knowledge creation and application, knowledge mobilization and exchange, information search and transformation as well as the learning process at and outside the workplace. The success of companies in a knowledge-based economy relies more on knowledge and intellectual capital than on other resources. Therefore, transferring new knowledge from foreign multinational corporations (MNC) to the local workforce is a basic step for sustaining competitive advantages. Success in knowledge transfer depends on employee absorption capacities,organizational learning climate, and the willingness of foreign expatriates in MNCs to transfer knowledge. Using the case study of Technology Park Malaysia (TPM), this paper investigates to what extent knowledge inflows and outflows have taken place among the professional Malaysian workforce. It also analyzes the factors influencing knowledge transfer.
