- Open innovation literature argues that firms need to identify new knowledge and collaborate it through the innovation process. In line with the issue, absorptive capacity has been highlighted in the various fields such as technology management, strategic management, international business and organizational economics. But the component, outcomes, antecedents and definition of absorptive capacity is diverse and somewhat ambiguous. Relevant to this issue, many studies attempted to conceptualize absorptive capacity with different definitions and dimensions. However, few undertake dealing with other antecedents such as characteristics of organizational structure. In this paper, we aim to empirically explore the antecedents of absorptive capacity, namely formalization, decentralization, and coordination capability, those which possibly affect the potential absorptive capacity and realized absorptive capacity. Further, we try to find effect of absorptive capacity practices on absorptive capacity. By doing so, findings are expected to allow firms to better understand how absorptive capacities can be developed.
