Abstract: Dynamic capabilities are behind the organisational efforts to reconfigure and adapt to the persistent and ever-growing demands of change. This research, has, on one hand, delineated the boundaries of the constructs and proposed a theoretical model and on another hand, based on empirical analysis, validated the conceptual model. The results provide strong foundations for the conceptual model as they point towards the synergistic effect of the modelled constructs. Knowledge management framework (KMF) and combinative capabilities are contributors towards the organisational capability to learn and innovate. The relationship of knowledge architecture with change capability is amplified when it is mediated by organisational learning and innovative capability. This research not only reinforces the role of dynamic capabilities for organisational survival and success but also constructs coherent cohorts for effectively managing a logical relationship while structuring organisational capabilities.

Keywords: knowledge management; learning capability; innovative capability; dynamic capability; combinative capability; change capability; Indian pharmaceutical industry; structural equation modelling; resource based view of firms.
