Resumen

Este artículo examina los efectos de la base de conocimiento sobre la capacidad de absorción (CA) de pymes de baja tecnología, teniendo en cuenta el efecto mediador de los antecedentes organizacionales. El estudio empírico se basa en el uso de ecuaciones estructurales a partir de los datos derivados de un cuestionario aplicado a 96 empresas de los sectores agroindustrial y logístico del departamento del Atlántico, Colombia. Los resultados muestran que la base de conocimiento no es suficiente para generar impactos significativos en la CA empresarial, requiriendo de antecedentes organizacionales y, en particular, del desarrollo de redes de comunicación internas (capacidades de socialización) que capitalicen las habilidades de los empleados en beneficio de la capacidad de absorción empresarial.
