Abstract

This study investigated dynamic capabilities (DCs) within the Australian tertiary education sector to provide insights about how universities can strategically position themselves for the future. A single 'rich' qualitative case study method comprised the analysis of over 350 documents, 15 one-on-one interviews with the University leaders, and five focus groups. The main theoretical contribution of this study is the development of a novel Cogwheel Model of DCs (CMDC), which illustrates the dynamic processes of DCs rarely considered within existing models. The practical contribution encompasses application of the model for university leaders and other practitioners concerned with strategic renewal and growth.
