International acquisitions intended to achieve knowledge transfers and improvements of innovation capacity can only be successful if the acquirer devotes balanced attention to (a) building a unified social community and (b) achieving requisite commonality in dominant logic. The balance between these two dimensions of success depends on the activity class considered: in some activity classes, imposing the acquiring firm's dominant logic will be dysfunctional, and therefore the post-acquisition managerial focus may need to shift towards social community building. Bresman, Birkinshaw and Nobel's (1999) acclaimed JIBS paper should be commended for identifying the social community dimension as a critical driver of international acquisition success.
