As the internationalization process dictates the existence of cross-country networks it is essential to explore avenues that allow emerging market multinationals (EMNCs) to share and receive knowledge that can benefit them locally and globally. In this manuscript we explore this conundrum by addressing the significance of creating a global mindset in individuals and across the MNC. In the manuscript we articulate the mechanisms that influence global managers’ abilities to engage effectively with other global managers across borders. We argued that global managers engage in reciprocal learning processes to obtain new, innovative knowledge about other countries’ environments and business practices. We furthermore suggest that the effectiveness of new knowledge creation is dependent upon the appropriate input, throughput, and output competencies of those involved in the reciprocal learning process. Proper people management plays a crucial role in fostering an environment where employees’ commitment will lead to organisational innovation. Propositions foreshadowing in the new, innovative knowledge creation process across cultural and personal levels are articulated.
