The Impact of Collaborative Development and Knowledge Sharing of Medical Device Enterprises on Innovation Performance
Taking medical device manufacturers in the Yangtze River Delta region as an example, this paper studies the impact of collaborative development, technological innovation, and knowledge sharing on innovation performance. This paper divides collaborative development into two dimensions of network centrality and tie strength, divides technological innovation into two dimensions of institutional innovation and technological innovation, divides knowledge sharing into two dimensions of knowledge specialization and knowledge breadth, and selects financial performance and market performance as proxy variables for innovation performance. At the same time, based on the existing research results, the management of target enterprises is interviewed, and the questionnaire is designed according to the results of small-scale interviews. Investigate, analyze, and obtain innovation performance data from sample companies through questionnaires. The empirical results show that: collaborative development will significantly and positively affect innovation performance, in which network centrality and tie strength both have a significant positive impact on innovation performance; technological innovation can have a significant positive impact on product innovation performance, among which institutional innovation and product innovation can positively affect innovation performance; knowledge breadth and knowledge specialization of knowledge sharing play a mediating role between collaborative development and innovation performance. The results of this research can provide a reference for the medical device industry to build a scientific and technological innovation platform when choosing a collaborative development partner, and help medical device companies to strengthen the quality of the relationship with partners to obtain information and resources. Wisely using knowledge sharing and offering some lessons for improving the innovation performance of companies.
