Abstract: The existing literature on knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS) predominantly focuses on their role as innovation agents in innovation systems, with limited attention to innovation of KIBS firms in its own right. Using a sample of 181 KIBS firms in Singapore, this paper examines the key determinants of innovation behavior of KIBS firms. We find that knowledge interaction with manufacturing clients is positively associated with KIBS firms' own innovation. We also find that export intensity, a strategic focus on marketing and communications, and human capital intensity are positively related to KIBS firms' own innovation. © 2011 eContent Management.
