Dynamic capabilities (DC) theory emerged as both an extension to and a reaction against the inability of the resource-based view (RBV) to interpret the development and redevelopment of resources and capabilities to address rapidly changing environments. DC considered as a source of competitive advantage while resource based view also emerged as a source of competitive advantage so how these two theory different ?

Dear colleagues,
I am working on a measurement model based on capabilities to measure organizational resilience capability (ORC). Given that I could only focus the study on the antecedents of ORC with a microfoundational approach, I would instead like to develop the model a bit more and find an outcome variable that could depend on the different levels of ORC that I will assess. Let's call this missing outcome variable "variable Y" for the moment.
I am also trying to connect the current COVID-19 pandemic to ORC, expecting to find a better response of more resilient organizations with respect to Y. Finally, as I work on Sustainability, I wouldn't mind Y to be related to sustainability too. I was thinking about something such as the difference between "perceived" and "expected" sustainable organizational performance, expecting lower differences to be connected to higher level of ORC. What do you think about that? It is not easy to find a direct link between an outcome variable and ORC. Any suggestions?

Dear Giacomo Buzzao
Seeing all that you have explained, it seems that you are trying to develop a holistic model that can integrate micro, meso and macro levels. Therefore you need to go to individual level (micro of both organization & holistic concept), then to organization's highest level (macro of the organization and meso of the concept) as well as beyond organizational level (macro). I am working on a similar holistic approach but area is a bit different; Individual and Collective Organizational Mindfulness by integrated Micro, Meso and Macro levels. Micro elements effect the outcomes at Meso level, such as Organizational Collective Performance, simultaneously the Meso level (Leadership, Policies, Procedures, Resources and Attitudes etc) effect the elements at Micro level. Beyond that at Macro level certain factors factors also effect which are beyond control of the organization, such as National Policies, Natural Disaster, Pandemic like COVID-19).
I think you need to conceptualize your concept in clarity . First specify the CONCEPT ( Organizational Resilience), then derive DIMENSIONS from the concept (Anticipate, Coping and Adaption and so on), further derive FACTORS (Internal as well as external to the organization) from dimensions and finally derive ELEMENTS from factors. After you have done that place DIMENSIONS at macro, FACTORS at meso and ELEMENTS at micro and your CONCEPTUAL Model is automatically formed. Then think, discuss and fine tune your model.
I am sending you few figures which I developed for my thesis and fuhrer for my ongoing project and hope they might help you as guideline in formulating your Model. i am available for further help if you need me. Regards

Online entrepreneurs are both owners and workers. Their performances reflect their business performance. Since operating online, the level of competition is quite high. Consumers are also more knowledgable. Being exposed to other countries' social-culture, their demand, taste, and preferences are affected. Thus, it is expected that online entrepreneurs need to adapt to changes in the environment if they want to survive and gain advantages. So, doesn't this mean that online entrepreneurs must possess dynamic capability too, albeit not as complex as large corporations? Online entrepreneurs still need to seize opportunities, learn and make improvement, coordinate and collaborate with suppliers and dropship agents, and integrate their business operation with ICT. Aren't these elements of dynamic capability? So, can we measure the dynamic capability of online entrepreneurs?

I concur with Adam Sulich and Dariusz Prokopowicz
Dynamic capabilities as a concept - Teece & Pisano - is a broad concept. You need to drill it down to one or two measurable variables. In modern parlance, you could use different elements of a "business model." Ability to change; 1) customers; 2) value proposition; 3) channels to market; 4) revenue model etc.,

Now I am trying to analyze which is the effect of Sensing and Seizing on Reconfiguring for Sustainability. To me, a relation of this type (Sensing and Seizing as antecedents for Reconfiguring) makes sense.

Relevant answer
Answer
If you look in Web of Science, Scopus or Ebscohost, enter these two search terms:
Row 1: dynamic capabiit* (AND)
Row 2: measure
and you should get a decent response. Fine tune the search if you wish.
Not sure if this helps but dynamic capability is a latent factor (you cant observe) and therefore cannot measure until that capability is deployed. So any scales measure the product of one or more capabilities - not a dynamic capability. Likert scaling by the way can be open to subject bias.

It is said that the dynamic capabilities of an organization (sensing, linking and seizing) are reflected in the firm's routines and processes, for services marketing it means, the respective service delivery routines and processes.
When a front-line employee (FLE) serves a customer he/she performs the tasks within the set organizational routines and processes. Meaning an FLE serves a customer through the lens/barrier/invisible frame set by the organization.
In that sense, can we say that the service delivery gets mediated through this wall of organizational dynamic capabilities?
Relevant answer
Answer
Researchers have argued that the dynamic capabilities are fundamental to the company's success in the competition in both domestic and international markets (MURRAY et al. 2011). Dynamic capabilities were initially conceptualized by Teece et al. (1997) as the "firm's ability to integrate, build, and reconfigure internal and external competencies toward environmental changes".
The dynamic capabilities are formed by sub dimensions, which include the capabilities called sense, which is the ability to monitor and identify opportunities, seize, which involves assessing existing and emerging capabilities, and possible investment and reconfiguration, referring to create, extend and modify the resources when the company grows and the market changes, organizational and administrative proceedings involving different activities and skills, learning, strategic response and integration of new features and assets.

Big data analytics (BDA) is a major paradigm shift in business analytics. Big data refers primarily to datasets which are characterized by what some authors term the “three Vs” or volume, variety, and velocity. By this, it is meant that first of all, big data is big, with the total amount of data totaling in the terabytes or petabytes. Big data is also typically unstructured and highly heterogeneous, rather than fixed into a single structured format. Business organizations often do not get proper analysis required for value generation from their big data resources, largely due to misunderstanding of big data resources or poor integration of BDA tools into the decision making processes.

Answer
Dear Colleagues and Friends from RG, In recent years, the scope of applications of Big Data technology and Data Science and Data Analytics analytics in economics, finance and management of organizations, including enterprises, financial and public institutions, has been increasing. Therefore, the importance of implementing analytical instruments for advanced processing of large data sets in enterprises, financial and public institutions, i.e. the construction of Big Data Analytics platforms to support the organization management processes in various aspects of operations, including the improvement of customer relations, is also growing. In my opinion, scientific research confirms the strong correlation between the development of Big Data technology, Data Science analytics, Data Analytics and the effectiveness of the use of knowledge resources. I believe that the development of Big Data technology and Data Science analytics, Data Analytics and other ICT information technologies, multi-criteria technology, advanced processing of large information sets, and Industry 4.0 technology increases the efficiency of using knowledge resources, including in the field of economics, finance and organization management. In recent years, ICT information technologies, Industry 4.0 etc. have been particularly dynamically developing and are used in knowledge-based economies. These technologies are used in scientific research and business applications in commercial enterprises and in financial and public institutions. Due to the growing importance of this issue in knowledge-based economies, an important issue is the analysis of the correlation between the development of Big Data technology and Data Science, Data Analytics, Business Intelligence and the effectiveness of using knowledge resources to solve key problems of civilization development, e.g. in the implementation programs for the quick implementation of the principles of sustainable pro-ecological development in economic processes in accordance with the green economy philosophy and the financing of programs for the creation and implementation of ecological innovations, and the urgent implementation of necessary ecological reforms. The goal of these pro-ecological business venture programs is to reduce the level of environmental pollution and slow down the global warming process. However, this is only one of the key global problems, the solution of which may be conditioned by the question of the possibility of increasing the efficiency of using large resources of knowledge accumulated in Big Data databases in knowledge-based economies. In connection with the above, I suggest the following research questions that may inspire you to implement important and interesting research projects: Are there studies that verify the correlation between the development of Big Data technology and Data Science analytics, Data Analytics, Business Intelligence and other ICT information technologies and advanced data processing Industry 4.0 and the effectiveness of the use of knowledge resources, including in the field of economics, finance and management of organizations, including enterprises, financial and public institutions? In recent years, there have been more and more media reports that in many countries there has been a significant increase in environmental pollution and a global acceleration of the global warming process. The problem is serious because the pace of the global warming process has significantly accelerated in recent years. However, this is only one of many key problems in the development of human civilization to be urgently solved in the 21st century. It is therefore necessary to increase the efficiency of processing knowledge resources in order to find faster solutions to key problems of civilization development. The use of Big Data, Data Science, Data Analytics, Business Intelligence and other ICT information technologies as well as advanced data processing Industry 4.0 in the processing of knowledge resources should contribute to increasing the efficiency of knowledge resource processing in knowledge-based economies, including in the field of economics and finance. In connection with the above, it has been growing in recent years, and will increase in the coming years, the importance of implementing analytical instruments for advanced processing of large data sets in enterprises, financial and public institutions, i.e. the construction of Big Data Analytics platforms to support the management of organization processes in various aspects of operations, including also in terms of improving customer relationships. I conduct research in this area. The conclusions of the research I published in scientific publications that are available on the Research Gate portal. I invite you to cooperation.

For my dissertation I am thinking of investigating whether s firms dynamic capabilities are sustainable or not'. Is this a good title/topic to explore? I think this is a research gap but I would like other people's opinion on this, and how I would collect research for this. I think the topic of competitive advantage is too broad, so I have narrowed it down to dynamic capabilities because it seems to be a hot topic for debate
Relevant answer
Answer
This is an interesting topic. More so because some researchers (such as Winter 2003) have discussed multiple orders of dynamic capabilities in a hierarchical manner. So if resources are zero-order, ordinary capabilities are first-order, and DCs are second-order, there could also be third-order DCs which would modify the second-order capabilities, and so on...
So, depending on what level of DC you are talking about, you could always think about their sustainability.

Dear Professor Amy Shuen,
I am a researcher from Finland (Lappeenranta University of Technology). Before academia I did a long career in the media. Now I am studying dynamic capabilities in the media context. So far I have done case studies. But I am interested in studying dynamic capabilities on industrial level, because it seems that the changes are following similar paths and logic in the media industry. On the other hand and based on the nature of dynamic capabilities, they are firm-specific and always tailored to their context. But can a specific industry be seen as a context which gives rise to certain kinds of dynamic capabilities?

The dynamic capabilities framework analyzes the sources and methods of wealth creation and capture by private enterprise firms operating in environments of rapid technological change. The competitive advantage of firms is seen as resting on distinctive processes (ways of coordinating and combining), shaped by the firm's (specific) asset positions (such as the firm's portfolio of difficult-to-trade knowledge assets and complementary assets), and the evolution path(s) it has adopted or inherited. The importance of path dependencies is amplified where
conditions of increasing returns exist. Whether and how a firm's competitive advantage is eroded depends on the stability of market demand, and the ease of replicability (expanding internally) and imitatability (replication by competitors). If correct, the framework suggests that private wealth creation in regimes of rapid technological change depends in large measure on honing internal technological, organizational, and managerial processes inside the firm. In short, identifying new opportunities and organizing effectively and efficiently to embrace them are generally more fundamental to private wealth creation than is strategizing, if by strategizing one means engaging in business conduct that keeps competitors off balance, raises rival's costs, and excludes new entrants. ? 1997 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Sven,
Actually, I disagree with your question. Dynamic capabilities do not really have "types". They are a congruent concept and one cannot say that, for example, innovation is a type of DC. It may be a part of DC.
I agree with you that there might be DC of different type. I wrote a paper on it: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/277016752_Multilevel_Model_of_Dynamic_Capabilities?ev=prf_pub
But since it is one of my first academic works, please be not too critical to the way of argumentation ;)
I think that DC can be different, for example, according to their  diection: directed towards adaptation or towards a market change. You can find the notion by Eisenhardt and Martin  (2000).
If you, however, want to know which components of DC might be more important for Startups, you have to make an explorative study on it. The reason is - each firm has its way to achieve dynamic (equifinality, as mentioned by Eisenhardt and Martin). Since Startups may differ from other established firms, they can indeed have their intrinsic mechanism to face environmental dynamism. May be creativity  might represent a microfoundation for them. Look for the conference paper by Zott & Huy, 2012. The scholars proposed the notion of activation, showing that emotional states of managers  (in you case startup founders) might be crucial for DC.
I hope I did not destroy your vision of DC in startups.
Sincerely,
Eugene

Can anyone give some ideas how to conceptualize culture and measure its impact on dynamic capabilities?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello, Mr. Ram -
You asked "Can anyone provide some ideas about how to conceptualize culture and measure its impact on dynamic capabilities ? "
I am assuming that you mean "organizational culture"?
When a researcher seeks to conceptualize a construct, he or she is interested in how that construct or variable is used in the literature. It is important for the researcher to explain which definition or conceptualization of the construct he or she is applying to the study so that there is a common understanding of the researcher's use of the term.
According to Bellot (2007), the term "organizational culture" (OC) remains controversial (p. 29). In the literature review (attached), she explained that it was Pettigrew (1979) who first coined the term. Since then, various conceptualizations have emerged in the literature, and these conceptualizations vary, depending on the discipline; for example, on page 31 of the article, you will find several conceptualizations of the term “culture”, based on disciplines such as Social Psychology, Sociology, and Business/Psychology/Sociology combinations, etc., etc. A careful read of these various conceptualizations ought to clarify for you the most appropriate definition of the term, based on the particular context in which you will apply it.
Dynamic Capabilities (DC).
As far as measuring the impact of OC on “dynamic capabilities”, once again, you will first have to define (conceptualize) the DC construct.
Eisenhardt and Martin (2000) explained that dynamic capabilities “consisted of specific strategic and organizational processes such as product development, forming alliances, and other types of strategic decision-making that brings value to the firm (p. 1106); however the authors pointed out that the literature characterizes the term “dynamic capabilities” as “complicated routines that emerge from path dependent processes” (1115). You can imagine that the complicated routines in a business will be many! So, in order to measure organizational impact on dynamic capabilities, you first have to identify exactly which of the dynamic capabilities that you will be measuring.
Now, in designing a study, for example, the particular dynamic capabilities that interest you will be the subdimensions of the overarching variable called “Dynamic Capabilities”. The question now becomes, how will you gather data on those subdimensions of DC? What measuring instrument will you use to gather the data? I would suggest that you look to a secondary database. For example, if one of your dynamic capabilities is “product development”, you will have to find a way of conceptualizing “product development” and, perhaps, quantifying it in some measurable way.
Measuring the impact of OC on DC.
Your question implies an assessment of an effect of OC on DC; therefore, a regression analysis might be in order – so long as your variable measurements fit the criteria for regression analysis. Through regression analysis you will be able to discern the variances caused by OC on DC, etc. Hope this helps :)

This is a good question without an obvious answer.
