Adopting a knowledge-as-practice perspective, we provide a possible choice to much of the existing discussion, emphasizing a knowledge-as-possession perspective. We collected data from two case-study Original Equipment Manufacturers and two associated suppliers and analysed these utilizing Template Analysis and cross-case analysis. Our results show how different interaction mechanisms, forming part of structural, processual and behavioural types of interaction mechanisms and their cross-level effects, influence knowledge integration.
