    Abstrakt

    In this paper, we explore the effects of inbound open innovation on firm’s
    innovation performance. Empirical strategic management research in general,
    and research on open innovation, in particular, is subject to an important degree
    of model uncertainty. This is because the true model, and therefore the selection
    of appropriate explanatory variables, is essentially unknown. Drawing on the
    literature on the determinants of innovation, and by analyzing innovation
    survey data for France, Germany, and the UK, we conduct a ‘large-scale’
    replication using the Bayesian averaging approach of classical estimators. We
    test a wide range of determinants of innovation performance suggested in the
    prior open innovation literature, and establish a robust set of findings on the
    variables which shape innovation performance. We provide some implications
    for innovation research and explore the potential application of our approach to
    other domains of research in strategic management.
