Linking Strategic Agility to Product Development: The Role of Employee Resilience and Self-efficacy as Microfoundations

April 21, 2023 @ 12:00 - 13:00


While strategic agility is increasingly acknowledged as a critical source of innovation and product development performance (PDP), little attention has been paid to the micro individual capabilities that translate strategic agility into greater PDP. This study examines the mediating roles of employee resilience and self-efficacy as key dynamic micro-level (individual) capabilities that connect firms’ strategic agility to their PDP in the emerging market of Türkiye. We adopt a microfoundations approach and run a multilevel analysis using data from 758 managers working in 185 firms to test our hypotheses. The findings suggest that strategic agility is positively associated with PDP. That said, the impact of strategic agility on PDP -both examined at the organizational level- is conveyed through individual-level capabilities of employee resilience and self-efficacy. We draw on the microfoundations of PDP and provide important insights into how individual capabilities enable attaining higher PDP.
