About this book

In this book Florian Andresen aims to unpack the “capability rigidity paradox” within the dynamic capability view. Consequently, he tackles one of the core challenges in strategic management of the past decades. Providing a novel and thorough literature review on dynamic capabilities from the point of this paradox, the author discusses the current state of the literature to derive the core shortcomings meticulously. A case study of capability evolution in the German Armed Forces is interpreted against the backdrop of a strategy as process and practice lens, thus, allowing to propose the concept of meso‐level dynamic capabilities without falling prey to the capability rigidity paradox.

About the authors

The primary research area of Florian Andresen is located at the intersection between organization and management theory and strategy-as-practice. He is interested in how local practices evoke global organizational phenomena. The author is currently employed as a project officer at the Institute of Technology and Innovation Management at the Helmut-Schmidt-University. In this capacity, the Author investigates organizational adaptation and dynamic capabilities in the German Federal Armed Forces as part of a mandated research project.
