Dynamic capabilities are an essential theoretical construct that is useful for understanding the phenomenon of competition. However, even though dynamic capabilities and issues relating to them seem to enjoy large popularity, the existing management literature lacks studies into processes that shape dynamic capabilities. This article attempts to outline the concept of dynamic capabilities and presents the authors’ proposed configuration of the processes that shape dynamic capabilities. A discussion then follows of the results of research into the opportunities-sensing and learning processes and how they shape dynamic capabilities in Polish enterprises.
