Abstract

International technology transfer of advanced technology and knowledge and their subsequent absorption is crucial to firms in developing nations. This research paper aims to further enhance the understanding and operationalization of the absorptive capacity construct. In the rigorous review of existing literature, organizational routines were found to play a significant role in enhancing an organization's absorptive capacity. We present our conceptualization of necessitated absorptive capacity as a dynamic organizational capability in the Necessitated Absorptive Capacity model. This paper contributes to the existing literature by providing a new model and an enhanced understanding and further operationalization of absorptive capacity.
