In the post-acquisition integration process, organizations need to transfer different types of knowledge from one organization to another in order to align their operational routines, practices and culture. The authors' aim is to identify the critical factors that relate to knowledge transfer in terms of the different knowledge types. They conducted a qualitative case study from an exploratory perspective. They first selected a case firm operating in the Knowledge-Intensive Business Services (KIBS) field and then incorporated four different acquisition cases into the study.
