A model of technology diffusion management and the limits to it's applicability to industry creation and the uptake of technology leverage processes in advanced environments was described. An example of east Asian success in knowledge driven industries was discussed. The model focused on the idea that the success of east Asian firms in the foreign market was due to processes of collective competence acquisition through technology diffusion management rather than individual competence.
