Abstract


This study operationalized the network model of internationalisation (Johanson and Mattsson,1988) to test the association between experiential knowledge, degree of internationalisationand network degree of internationalisation. Using Eriksson et al.'s three knowledgeconstructs (1997), the ANOVA results confirm the predicted sliding scale of experientialknowledge levels for International among Others firms. The results also confirm the higherforeign business knowledge levels of the Late Starter relative to the Lonely International dueto the advantage of residing in a highly internationalised network.
