Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to synthesize existing knowledge-based dynamic capabilities research into a single typology for managerial and academic use.Design/methodology/approach – Based on the resource-based and knowledge-based views, this study conducts a theoretically-grounded typology development exercise based on an extensive review of the existing dynamic capabilities literature.Findings – The paper identifies seven frameworks presented in the literature that showed some consistency in underlying concepts but conflict in nomenclature and application. Identifying over 80 uses of knowledge-based dynamic capabilities in the literature review, three complementary dimensions that are common amongst the frameworks are identified and integrated into a consistent typology of eight knowledge-based dynamic capabilities to encompass the extant literature.Originality/value – Addressing fragmentation in the knowledge-based dynamic capabilities discourse, the paper advances the concept of knowledge-based dynamic capabilities by organizing the existing literature and frameworks into a comprehensive and consistent typology. Moreover, this integrative typology allows managers and researchers to identify those capabilities in use and the commonalities between them. Finally, the paper identifies a new knowledge-based dynamic capability which has not yet been identified in any existing framework.
