Resumé

The study of absorptive capacity (ACAP) has received quite some attention in the literature, as it emphasizes the capability to acquire and implement new knowledge which is important for knowledge creation and innovation in organizations. The concept has conceptually been argued to reside at different levels of organizations, yet the vast majority of research has focused on organizational-level ACAP. Although the importance of individual-level ACAP is recognized in many studies, there is a lack of research demonstrating an appropriate conceptualization and operationalization of ACAP at the micro level of organizations. The present paper focuses on developing and empirically validating an appropriate measurement scale for individual-level ACAP.
