Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Business and IT alignment (BITA) is an increasingly important topic. Co-evolutionary IS alignment
(COISA) not only focuses on this alignment and its alignment competencies but also incorporates other aspects such as alignment motivation and heterogenous interconnections between employees. In this paper, we performed a quantitative survey-based study to test the influence of COISA on Dynamic Capabilities. COISA was represented with three hypotheses, of which one was found statistically significant; The hypothesis that alignment competencies positively influence the degree of dynamic capabilities on organizations in the public sector was supported in this study. The moderating aspects of COISA, alignment motivation, and Heterogenous interconnections showed no statistical significance in our study. Data analyses were performed using the PLS-SEM technique with a sample size of 70.
