Building IT Capability to Increase Organizational Performance: A Path-Oriented Process

Most studies on Information Technology (IT) capability have drawn their conceptualization from the tenets of Resource-Based View (RBV). Though path dependence is central to the concept of RBV, very few studies have examined the developmental paths of IT capabilities, which are typically treated as first-order constructs with their effects on firm performance investigated as direct causal links. This paper conceptualizes IT capability as the outcome of a path-specific resource building process, driven by the e-business skills and knowledge of a firm's IT human resources, which the authors refer to as e-business centric IT expertise.
