Drawing from the consolidated resource based view, dynamic capabilities are considered among the main driver to foster innovation. Underlying is the assumption that the performance of a corporation is ultimately affected by the ability to either match over time its set of resources and competencies to the changing environment, or to implement effective strategic alliances with external actors. Complementarities are to be sought when changes in the strategic configuration of resources and competences are required, especially within information intensive industries. Dynamic environments suggest adopting a systems dynamics perspective, when it comes to investigate business-related behaviour. Business models analysis combined with systems dynamics approach provides powerful frameworks of analysis to study non-linear dynamic networks, which are at the basis of resources acquisition or development processes.
