RODRIGUEZ-ALBOR, Gustavo Jesús et al. BUSINESS ABSORPTION CAPACITY ANALYSIS: A LITERATURE REVIEW. Semest. Econ. [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.43, pp.139-159. ISSN 0120-6346.  https://doi.org/10.22395/seec.v20n43a6.

The absorption capacity allows companies improve acquisition conditions, assimila tion and knowledge exploration. This article analyses the fundamentals, history and relevant trends in absorption capacity. To achieve this, a systematic literature review process was done, starting with theoretical and empirical international publications identifying the most influential works from a diffusion and applicability point of view. Afterwards, the point of divergence and the limitations that the creation of a new knowledge in this field has where identified. The revision shows that the absorption capacity has a strategic value for the competitiveness and value creation of businesses.
