AbstractThis brief paper aims to discuss (as a review) the notion of organisational/corporate abilities, a term that, albeit frequently used in the business world, often presents ambiguities in terms of its meaning. We tried to uncover an exact definition for it using different approaches, as well as models of organisational description and/or diagnostic value; however, none of these could provide us with a distinct answer. As the paper could not afford to undertake the introduction of every single approach that has so far been laid down in this subject, we cannot endeavour to formulate our own definition; our work only serves to illustrate that the concept has deeper meanings and thus cannot be used without interpretation. It can have different meanings, which sometimes inhibits the factual description of a given scenario, even though that is what terminologies are usually for. We have concluded that an accurate definition of the concept would be essential, as those specialising in organisational science could benefit from its standardised use.
