Abstract

This paper investigates the way that firms' environmental context and organizational structure influence their strategic choices and lead to different capabilities configurations. Drawing on contingency theory and the resource-based view, we explore integrated solutions - an emerging business model in which firms bundle products and services - in the IT sector, which is a particularly appropriate context due to its novelty, high-technology characteristics and implications for capabilities development. This study contributes to research and practice by identifying how organizational and environmental/market factors co-evolve with firms' strategy and how firms' distinct strategic decisions lead to differences in capabilities configurations.
