Imitation strategies within the framework of dynamic capabilities

Kazimierz Krzakiewicz , Szymon Cyfert


In emphasising the dynamic nature of the environment and showing the examples of businesses who ultimately found it difficult to adapt to environmental changes despite their initial success, Teece and Pisano (1994) make clear the importance of analysing the shifting character of the environment and the need to set a greater store by strategic management in adapting, integrating, and reconfiguring internal and external organisational behaviours, resources, and functional competences toward changing environment. According to Teece and Pisano, in order to sustain their competitive advantage, organizations should acquire and shed their resources to the extent that reflects the changes in their environment. Well-design strategies of innovation and imitation, which bolster organisational flexibility in responding to change in its environment, can support the dynamic capabilities processes within organisations. The purpose of this article is to discuss an imitation (copycat) strategy as examined from the perspective of dynamic capabilities
