Organisations have an affinity for specific skill sets. Yet, for them to flourish, they need to invest in an integrated system of multiple networks to develop organisational capabilities. In a study on capability systems in new businesses, researchers reveal a management-led process in which capability architecture arises from the strategic intent of the founding team and is realised through organisational systems of structure, process development and external knowledge sourcing. According to the study, capability architecture sort of provides a bridge between the world of cognition and the world of action. Employees, too, would need to tread through the realms of senses and the real world to make use of their perceived opportunities.
