DYNAMIC CAPABILITY DEVELOPMENT – PROCESS, STRUCTURE AND BEHAVIOR
Published: 23 Sep 2014
Abstract: In this paper, we identify three emerging schools of dynamic capability development: process (Ambrosini, Bowman & Collier, 2009; Helfat et al, 2007), structural (Felin et al, 2012), and behavioral. We discuss essential features of these different schools. We also identify three sub-schools of the behavioral school: based on their emphasis on the role of cognitions or mental maps (e.g. Eesley and Roberts, 2010), of emotions and emotional capability (e.g. Huy, 2012), and of relations and social networks (e.g. Jones, Macpherson & Jayawarna, 2011). Finally, we propose a contingency model of dynamic capabilities and firm performance.
