Imitation’s Dynamic Capabilities

Abstract:  In this theoretical study, we introduce a fresh research outlook by harnessing the dynamic capabilities inherent in imitation strategies. We have surveyed existing scholarly works on dynamic capabilities, identifying certain capabilities that organizations employing imitation strategies can cultivate. We propose the term “dynamic imitation capabilities” to encapsulate these abilities, including absorption capacity, observational learning, and R&D imitation capacity. The theoretical framework presented in this paper highlights the relationship between these capacities and imitation, inviting further empirical investigations across various domains to validate or uncover additional capabilities.
