Knowledge transfer (KT) is an attempt by an entity to copy and utilize an explicit type of knowledge from another entity. The main reason is none other than to expand the ability and increasing the value through inter-organization collaborative affiliation. Nonetheless, questions may arise as to what extent do capabilities, mechanism and performance or success is associated. Using inputs from 154 respondents which consist of various KTP (knowledge transfer program) partners namely from the
more &raquo; ... nity (total 94) and industry (total 60), this article highlights the associations between the three main categories of variables. Using Smart PLS (partial least squares), the study provides evidence that academia knowledge, academia readiness, academia skills, and ethics and conduct affect KTP performance through the mediation role of KT mechanism. Academia readiness was also found to be the most significant predictor to KT mechanism. In summary, all the significant capabilities have indirect positive impact towards KTP performance. Thus, higher education institutions must emphasize their internal strength in order to continue supporting the success of inter-organization collaborative affiliation.
