The management literature has highlighted several potential benefits of cohesive socialization practices. In contrast, this paper posits that such practices, contribute to a biased perception of internally generated knowledge and therefore to a greater reluctance to adopt external knowledge – the so-called Not-Invented-Here (NIH) syndrome. Drawing on multi-informant survey data, the authors find that cohesive socialization practices are an important driver of the NIH syndrome. The effect is attenuated in technologically highly specialized companies, but aggravated in technologically sophisticated ones.
