Strategisches Kompetenz-Management

28.September 2011 - 30.September 2011
Johannes Kepler University Linz

7th SKM Symposium jointly with 9th International Conference on
Competence-based Management. SKM-Symposia as well as the
International Conference on Competence-based Management provide
platforms for intensive discussion and exchange of research
ideas, and work in the field of Strategic Competence-based Strategic
Management. According to the premises of the resource-based view,
organizations have to preserve their existing capabilities, but they
also have to constantly advance their competence base in order to
meet demands of a dynamically evolving environment. Thus, firms
have to create learning contexts, learn from others and they must
know when to prevent learning where exact replication is necessary.
Therefore, they have to resolve tensions between the antagonistic
development modes of exploration and exploitation
(ambidexterity) to evolve and to adapt to changing environments
and transfer successful business models in new contexts. Organizational
design, human resource management systems and changemanagement set the course for learning, in accordance with strategic
aims. Hence, research on strategic learning links learning,
knowledge creation, transfer, and replication with strategic objectives
with the aim to generate and sustain competitive advantages on
a competence-based perspective.
