    Resumé

    Building on resource dependency theory; this research investigates the joint impacts of subsidiary knowledge based actions (Reverse Knowledge Transfer (RKT) and knowledge development) and networking activities (internal and external embeddedness) on its strategic influence in the multinational corporation. The proposed model was tested with data on 184 foreign owned subsidiaries in the United Kingdom. The results indicate that the possession of strategic resources (knowledge or embedded relations) is not adequate for a subsidiary to increase its influence unless it is accompanied with RKT.
