The role and impact of second-order dynamic capabilities in resource base modification : an empirical investigation

Abstract : This qualitative case study illuminates how second-order dynamic capabilities enable the formation and deployment of first-order dynamic capabilities, capabilities that allow the modification of the resource base. Contrary to many studies that have concentrated on the formation of dynamic capabilities, we explore both the formation and deployment of first-order dynamic capabilities. We reveal that second-order dynamic capabilities enable the formation and deployment of first-order dynamic capabilities through four mechanisms: information-gathering, strategic analysis, capacity to experiment and implementation of strategic practices. We also highlight that the formation and deployment of first-order dynamic capabilities reinforce these four components of second-order dynamic capabilities. These findings allow us to contribute to the literature by providing a nuanced understanding of both the dynamic capability hierarchy and second-order dynamic capabilities.
