Abstract

Purpose: This paper analyses the impact of dynamic capability (DC) of emerging market multinationals (EMNEs) on their firm technological performance by teasing out the concepts of agility and knowledge management (KM) through DC. Design/methodology/approach: Evidence from this study is contextualised on EMNEs that operate in the UK, Germany and France. The investment in intangible assets through which EMNEs are able to develop their DC over the period 2005-2016, is examined and how this leads to increased firm technological performance, is investigated. Findings: Results show that higher investments in DC allows EMNEs to be more agile and gain competencies through KM and thereby sustain competitiveness in the three leading European countries. This research also identifies which EMNE groupings show greater technological performance and how such EMNE groupings are able to translate dynamic capabilities into greater technological performance compared to others over time. In summary, the role of DC during of the global financial crisis was also examined, where they are required to be more agile. Originality/value: This paper sheds light on a novel way and motivation of successful EMNEs in using developed host countries as a location for generating DC through agility and KM.
