Modelo muldimencional de las capacidades dinamicas en las organizaciones / Muldimencional model of dynamic capabilities in organizations

Miranda-Torrez Julian


La perspectiva de las capacidades dinámicas está en un proceso de construcción teórica. Ha sido criticada por diferentes autores (Dierickx y Cool, 1989; Simonin, 1999; Williamson, 1999). El documento es un aporte importante a este proceso, se propone un modelo teórico multidimensional y sistémico para profundizar el estudio teórico y empírico de la perspectiva de las capacidades dinámicas, fundamentado en la teoría de las organizaciones y en la administración estratégica. Para la construcción de este modelo se realizó una amplia revisión de más de ciento cincuenta documentos publicados sobre el tema. Como resultado, se plantean siete proposiciones teóricas que relacionan las capacidades dinámicas con los constructos del modelo, que servirán de marco teórico para emprender investigaciones empíricas en diferentes organizaciones. El documento es un aporte importante a la administración estratégica y particularmente a la perspectiva de las capacidades dinámicas, al relacionar de manera sistemática un conjunto de temas otorgándole al investigador un panorama amplio de temas de estudio específico.
