Capability Matrix : A Framework for Analyzing Capabilities in Value Chains
AbstractThis paper develops a Capability Matrix for analyzing capabilities of developing country firms that participate in global and national value chains. This is a generic framework to capture firm-level knowledge accumulation in the context of global and local industrial constellations, by integrating key elements of the global value chain (GVC) and technological capabilities (TC) approaches. The framework can visually portray characteristics of firmsâ€™ capabilities, and highlight a relatively overlooked factor in the GVC approach: local firmsâ€™ endogenous learning efforts in varieties of relationship with lead firms.
