Organisational orientations play an important role in capabilities development, since they align management’s strategic objectives with operational activities in two ways; they form the way that the members of an organisation process information and react to the environment, but they also create internal environments in which desired behaviours are encouraged and supported (Atuahene-Gima & Ko, 2001).
