Abstract [en]

Absorptive capacity and knowledge integration are key concepts in knowledge-based analyses of firms. Knowledge integration focuses on knowledge scope and integration of differentiated knowledge; absorptive capacity refers to knowledge evolution in path dependent processes and how a firm’s prior knowledge constrains future search. The chapter discusses the problems of change in these concepts, relates them to the literature on organizational path dependencies and dynamic capabilities, and suggests a synthesis in which change encompasses and involves knowledge-based agencies at various social levels.
