Integrating Resource-Based and Rational Contingency Views: Understanding Design of Dynamic Capabilities of Organisations

Listed author(s):

Registered author(s):

    Resource-based view of organisation emphasises that no organisation can be self sufficient and it will always be dependent on the environment for the fulfillment of resource needs. Further, this interaction with the environment can take various forms including manipulation, which is manifested through mergers, acquisitions and other interorganisational relationships. The rational contingency view of organisations emphasises the goals that an organisation has, which are not clearly brought out in the resource dependence view. It is attempted here to integrate perspectives from the resource-based and rational contingency views of organisations to assess how the dominant coalition would view its role in an organisation with respect to building dynamic capabilities after analysing an array of goal-resource linkage possibilities.
