DAVILA, José Camilo. Organizational capabilities: Dinamic in nature. Cuad. Adm. [online]. 2013, vol.26, n.47, pp.11-33. ISSN 0120-3592.

Drawing upon research findings of some authors, this paper is putting forwards a novel definition of organizational capabilities pinpointing the nature, features and potential of this notion. This definition suggests an alternative to the difficulty to establish a typology of organizational capabilities. The two components making up such a definition are exemplified on the basis of a case analysis, i.e., the dialogic nature engrained in the governance capacity, and the dual dimension characterizing the way how such organization capabilities are being put into practice. Thus, such a definition provides for an explicit and coherent conceptual basis for further research endeavours to be undertaken vis-à-vis organizational capabilities.

Keywords : Organizational capabilities; dynamic capabilities.
