Abstract: Combining the theories of resource-based and product architecture, this study examines the impact of the fitness of product architecture and organisational capability on business performance. The empirical data was collected from five high-tech and IT industries in Taiwan. A total of 217 companies returned the questionnaires and the data was analysed using chi-square tests and regression analysis. The results show that different organisational capabilities correspond to different product architectures. Also, selective organisational capability has a mediated effect on modular product architecture and business performance. Against our expectations, however, integrated collaborative organisational capability does not have a mediated effect on integrated product architecture and business performance. Overall, this study provides a theoretical analytic framework to better understand the interactive relationship between product architecture and organisational capability.
