Dealing with environmental turbulence in the Libyan tourism environment: Dynamic capabilities of Libyan tourism firms
MetadataShow full item record
Dynamic capabilities are perceived as the means for the adaptation of the firms to environmental turbulence. The aim of this paper is to identify dynamic capabilities that enable Libyan tourism firms to adapt to environmental turbulence. The study is based on semi-structured interviews with twenty Libyan tourism managers in eight case studies. Data analysis was done using template analysis. Our results indicate that Libyan tourism firms developed two dynamic capabilities –entrepreneurial and adaptation. Dynamic entrepreneurial capability is embedded in entrepreneurial insight and resource acquisition processes. In contrast, dynamic adaptation capability is embedded in transforming and implementation processes.
