Review of Literature

  • Vaneet Kaur
Part of the Innovation, Technology, and Knowledge Management book series (ITKM)


The chapter presents the theoretical standpoint for this book. The chapter reviews predominant theories for gaining Competitive Advantage and carries on with criticizing and synthesizing the current literature. Gaps in current knowledge are identified and a theoretical model is prepared after a thorough review of existing body of knowledge. In doing so, the chapter deeply delves into three parent disciplines: (1) Competitive Advantage which details the major schools of thoughts that explain the sources of Competitiveness; (2) Knowledge Management which covers a brief summary of the Knowledge Management Processes and Capabilities and the benefits of the same to organizations; (3) Dynamic Capabilities which covers the concept, nature and classification of such capabilities. The chapter continues with a discussion of Knowledge-Based Dynamic Capabilities, the transcending intermediate paradigm as a cornerstone leading to the formulation of the research model and the associated hypotheses intended to achieve the research objectives.
