Dynamic capabilities, which are subject to organizational embeddedness and potential path dependence, are sometimes inadequate for dealing with urgent and unexpected organizational and strategic problems. This study explores the boundary conditions of dynamic capabilities and proposes a complementary approach for dealing with unfamiliar problems: the ad hoc problem-finding and problem-solving perspective. Building on theoretical arguments of the dynamic capability view, managerial choice, and pr...

This paper is aimed at designing a conceptual framework that explains the composition, development and operation of a Crisis Management Team (CMT) within an organisation. It approaches a CMT from the perspective of teamwork in organisations. The paper presents findings from the discussion of the relationship between crisis management phases, Team-Based Work (TBW) and the analysis of new components (fine tuning) in the Input-Mediator-Output-Input (IMOI) model. It also draws critical points from t...

Abstract Despite extensive attempts to define and differentiate issue management and crisis management, the definitional approach – and linear life-cycle models which focus on the elements – fail to capture the full dynamics of the disciplines. Instead of a focus on definitions, this paper proposes a non-linear, relational construct which considers issue and crisis management in the context of interdependent activities and clusters of activity which must be managed at different stages. This incl...
