Abstract

Exploring how organizational antecedents affect the boundary capabilities, this study identifies the differing effects for three components of boundary capabilities. The results indicate that the organizational mechanisms associated with the coordination capabilities primarily enhance a team's syntactic transfer, semantic translation, and pragmatic transformation. The organizational mechanisms associated with the socialization capabilities primarily increase a team's semantic translation and pragmatic transformation. The information system primarily enhances the coordination and socialization capabilities. Our findings reveal why the teams may have difficulty managing the levels of syntactic transfer, semantic translation, and pragmatic transformation and vary in their ability to create the value from their boundary capabilities.
