Dynamic Capabilities and their Antecedents: Heterogeneous Configurations for Operating Process Change

21 Nov 2018 - 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Abstract: While research continues to uncover considerable heterogeneity in firms’ dynamic capabilities, we still know little about the distinctive antecedents that shape this heterogeneity. By combining configurational (fsQCA) with case study analysis, this paper identifies managerial, organizational and environmental antecedents that give rise to distinct configurations of dynamic capabilities that vary in the routineness of the constituting processes. Focusing on the important yet understudied domain of procurement, we identify four configurations of dynamic capabilities in more and less dynamic industry environments. We then highlight how particular managerial learning orientations together with organizational resource allocations, structures and systems jointly influence the formation of these dynamic capability configurations. The study contributes to research on dynamic capabilities by highlighting different ways in which firms establish and deploy dynamic capabilities. It thereby bridges extant divides in the theorization of dynamic capabilities and deepens our understanding of the foundations of dynamic capabilities.
