Abstract— Organization’s competitiveness for long-term prosperity rest in their ability to absorb, transfers, and exploits knowledge. This is particularly relevant for transformational leader, who responsible to derive and generate their core competence by managing the existing knowledge and the flow of external knowledge within their global networks. Drawing on a network perspective on organizational learning, I suggest that organizational unit can be more energetics to absorb and exploit knowledge for better performance if leader fundamentally understand and be able to design an appropriate learning process of leading and managing the knowledge base. Building on the research of micro-level origins, organizational routines and capabilities have played an important role in the organizational competitiveness heterogeneity. But it has not been received attention adequately analyzed with the absorptive capacity. This paper is an attempt to outline a research agenda for advancing understanding of absorptive capabilities.
— Absorptive capacity, transformational leadership, creative process engagement, organizational routines and capacities.
