"Dynamic Capabilities in Information Systems Research"

Abstract of talk
A question of central importance for researchers and practitioners is how information technology (IT) can help firms survive and thrive in turbulent and constantly changing business environments. Numerous studies have confirmed the positive effects of IT investments on firm performance, but our knowledge of the mechanisms through which such gains are realized remains limited. In the IS domain, the principal concept used to express a firms’ capacity to leverage its IT investments towards performance gains has been the notion of IT capability. However, it is becoming increasingly more evident that instead of developing rare and non-substitutable IT resources, embedding IT in organizational capabilities is the source of significant and sustained competitive returns . Dynamic capabilities enable firms to sustain evolutionary fitness and overcome organizational rigidities, sense and seize emerging business opportunities, as well as to innovate and adapt to changing market conditions. Thus, examining how they can be integrated in IS research is becoming increasingly more relevant in todays constantly changing business environment.
