Capabilities and Corporate Strategy

Track F

Date: Sunday, October 7, 2012


Time: 08:00 – 09:15

Interest Group Panel

Room: Club B

Session Chair:

  • Aseem Kaul, University of Minnesota


This session explores the relationship between firm capabilities and corporate strategy, focusing on research that brings together these two perspectives. Key questions we discuss include: what role does corporate strategy play in the acquisition and transfer of capabilities, how do firm capabilities influence the firm’s horizontal and vertical boundary choices, how do firm capabilities impact the success of the firm’s acquisition, divestment, and restructuring activities, what can research in this area tell us about firm innovation and organizational change. We bring together a panel of four leading scholars to shed light on these and related questions. Panelists will highlight recent advances in research on these issues, while discussing promising areas of future research.
