    Over two decades, encompassed within the broader perspective that absorptive capacity is more salient, in organizational management about how changes in innovation affect the outcome of firms performance. Much of the currently research has focused on those issues. However, its origin, definition, and construct remains ambiguity and even causes reification endanger the validity of study in scientific community of the field. Therefore, based on Piaget’s cognitive adaptation perspective and its theoretical roots, We echo to past contributions on reconceptualization and reconceptualize absorptive capacity. We propose a 3Rs model derived from literature reviews. Compared with the past model, our holistic model is concise and precise which fits to enhance various researches to create his or her novel insights and implications especially to the researches of ambidextrous organization. In addition, the evolution and extension of theory is discussed.
