Organisations are being told they need to improve their dynamic capabilities and increase their capacity to grow in an increasingly dynamic environment. Knowledge-based industries are increasingly competing on the basis of their knowledge resources. R&D and new product development activities are dependent on knowledge-based resources. This paper draws together work on learning behaviours, capabilities and capacities and shows how these can be linked to a competitive position for knowledge-based activities. Using empirical data collected for a European-Australian study on continuous innovation in new product development, this research demonstrates how bundles of learning behaviours create organisational capabilities.
