Unbalanced Dynamic Capabilities as Obstacles of Organisational Efficiency: Implementation Issues in Innovative Technology Adoption

Obalanserada dynamisk förmågor som organisationella effektivitetshinder (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

This paper draws on the dynamic capability framework in a healthcare context. It offers empirical experience of the sensing, seizing, and transforming capabilities acting in unbalanced configuration, potentially hindering organisational efficiency. Recent research is complemented by connecting three management roles to the dynamic capability framework. Lack of top management vision and co-ordination could lead to excessive autonomy of subunits, hindering knowledge and information transfer within the organisation. The findings also identify an organisational paradox that puts undue pressure on units to be dually flexible and consistent, thus pushing separation of content from process.

Abstract [sv]

Denna artikel bygger på ramverket för dynamisk förmåga inom ett hälsosammanhang. Artikeln bygger på en empirisk studie av olika förmågor: "sensing", "seizing" och "transforming", vilka i obalanserad konfiguration är ett potentiellt hinder för organisatorisk effektivitet. Ny forskning kompletteras genom att ansluta tre roller till ramverket om dynamisk förmåga. Brist på högsta ledningen vision och samordning kan leda till överdriven självständighet bland underenheter, kan hindra kunskap och informationsutbyte inom organisationen. Iakttagelserna identifierar också en organisatorisk paradox som lägger orimlig press på enheterna att vara både flexibel och konsekvent, vilket driver fram en separation av innehåll från process.
