Abstract: The aim of this research is to study the nature and extent of impact of learning and growth perspectives on dynamic capability. The associated constructs were developed from content analysis from expert interviews and extensive review of literature. The constructs were measured using a Likert scale for a sample of respondents from the Indian IT industry. Structural equation modelling (SEM) was used for testing reliability, validity of the model and hypothesis testing. Results indicated that information capital and human capital had higher significant impact on alliance management, reconfiguration, learning and integration capabilities. Considering the ever-growing complexity and dynamism in the IT industry, the results from the study helps to gain insights into the nature and extent of impact of learning and growth perspectives on dynamic capabilities in a granular form. Accordingly, the study adds to the current literature in strategic management, particularly on how to win.
