Abstract

This paper investigates the relationship between dynamic capabilities and a determinant factor of human capital. Analysing qualitative data from 38 interviews with key informants of organisations in the tourism industry in Vietnam with the use of template Analysis, we found that within the organisations human capital, especially the managerial skills, vision, mindset, and entrepreneurial spirit of the leaders, strongly influences the dynamic capabilities of organisations. We make two contributions. First, we make a theoretical contribution to the concept of dynamic capabilities by proposing that managerial capabilities are an integral part of human capital that support the building of dynamic capabilities in the context of Vietnamese tourism organisations. Second, our research provides empirical evidence in the field of dynamic capabilities to help managers understand how dynamic capabilities can be broken down into defined activities that they can use to evaluate the dynamic capabilities of their organisations.
