Chapter 17. COPING WITH YOUR ORGANIZATIO... > An Organizational Capabilities Frame...

17.1. An Organizational Capabilities Framework

Three classes of factors affect what an organization can and cannot do: its resources, its processes, and its values.

17.1.1. Resources

Resources are the most visible of the factors that contribute to what an organization can and cannot do.

Resources are usually things, or assets—they can be hired and fired, bought and sold, depreciated or enhanced.
