Abstract

This study proffers a micro-level conceptualization to absorptive capacity, by investigating individual’s capacity to learn from asymmetric engineering project team. Thus, the model proposes prior experience, learning orientation and need for cognition, as antecedents to abilities to recognize the value of and assimilate competent partner’s embedded knowledge. Results of the structural equation modeling, which was conducted through a cross sectional survey of 248 local team members of joint engineering projects in the Nigerian upstream oil industry, empirically validate the model. Specifically, this clarifies the role of individual in knowledge acquisition from joint project team, by demonstrating the effects of individual differences on learning capacity, i.e. ACAP.
