Dynamic Capabilities Through Corporate Development --- Dynamic capabilities refer to firm specific capabilities that can be developed, deployed, and protected for competitive advantage, through the managerial process. As firms compete in an increasingly complex and uncertain environment, they are required to build and leverage dynamic capabilities in constantly changing contexts in order to survive and grow. The course examines growth options and the challenges they present as they relate to internal development of skills and capabilities, and development of capabilities through alliances, mergers and acquisitions with a view of gaining competitive advantage.
