Modeling the effects of strategic flexibility, organisational learning on e-business adoption and competitive advantage : an empirical investigation
Voola, Ranjit , Bougoure, Ursula, & Fry, Marie-Louise (2005) Modeling the effects of strategic flexibility, organisational learning on e-business adoption and competitive advantage : an empirical investigation. In Proceedings of The 34th European Marketing Academy Conference, European Marketing Academy Conference, Milan.
The role of intangible firm capabilities as a source of competitive advantage has come into prominence in marketing strategy literature, due to the Resource Based View. This paper applies the Resource Based View and hypothesizes that strategic flexibility and organisation learning, conceptualised as capabilities, positively effect e-business adoption and competitive advantage. Partial Lease Squares analysis suggest that theoretical constructs function as hypothesised and explain a significant variation on e-business adoption and competitive advantage. Firms adopting e-business should develop capabilities such as strategic flexibility and organisation learning and that vendor firms may segment their potential clients based on these capabilities.
