The impact of IT human capability and IT flexibility on IT-enabled dynamic capabilities

Abstract

By conducting moderation mediation analyses, we investigate
how IT human capability (ITHC) and IT flexibility—independently and
jointly—influence the formation of IT-enabled dynamic capabilities
(ITDC). In this paper, we also analyze the influence of different
environmental conditions on the relationship between ITHC and ITDC.
We do so by empirically testing the constructed model on a dataset of 97
international firms, using the PROCESS technique. We draw upon the
dynamic capabilities view and modular system theory, which emphasize
the need for a firm to develop ITDC to respond to changes. Currently,
there is a gap in the literature concerning the role of ITHC on the
formation of ITDC. Our results show that there is a positive effect of
ITHC and IT flexibility on the formation of ITDC. Hence, organizations
should invest in their ITHC and IT flexibility to address the rapidly
changing business environment.
