Abstract: This study analyzes the issue of technology adaptation in a global technology transfer context. It proposes a knowledge-transfer perspective to analyze the underlying problems associated with technology adaptation. Using a practice lens, this study compares the knowledge system embedded in technology and that in the organization. Furthermore, this study extends the analysis of situated context to individual level and societal level. It explains how the embeddedness of knowledge system in organization's individual, organizational and societal context may inhibit technology adaptation. Based on a Sino-German technology transfer case, this study proposes a framework for organizations to identify misalignments between technology and organization, and evaluate the feasibility of adapting those misalignments.
