Abstract [en]

Capability transformation occupies a central role in providing competitive advantages to firms facing rapidly changing environments. To track capability transformation, the existing literature proposes a capability lifecycle model that includes founding, development, and maturity stages and identifies several possible capability transformations such as retirement, retrenchment, replication, renewal, redeployment, and recombination. Monitoring can be used to check significant changes in the complex environment that includes political, economic, social, and technological fields and initiate capability transformation by adapting firms to new environmental conditions ahead of the competition. Learning mechanisms such as tacit accumulation of past experience and explicit knowledge articulation can also be employed to guide the capability evolution to capability innovation. This paper explores the transformation of capabilities in one Brazilian firm by looking for processes used to monitor and evaluate the environment and identifying learning mechanisms utilized during the capability transformation process. Results indicate that the firm has systematic monitoring activities in place and consistently applies learning mechanisms to support capability transformation. Recommendations for managerial and organizational processes concerning monitoring and organizational learning on the firm level are also developed
