The rise of the knowledge economy brings to the foreground questions of how firms might best capture the value of their intellectual assets. This article introduces the notion of strategic interventions in intellectual asset flows designed to influence the level and composition of intellectual asset scarcity, with implications for firm performance. It also presents propositions that explain and predict how contingencies at differing levels of analysis influence the choice of strategic intervention.
