Hypothesis 7: Competence building moderates the relationship between Technology disruption and Competence adequacy (such that at higher level of CB, the effect of TD on CA will be reduced and at lower levels of CB, the effect will be higher). It is interesting to see other organizational corrective measures kicking in as linear supporting processes when competence adequacy is threatened by technology disruption (Lawler, 1994). The recent models of disruptive technology studies elucidate mutual dependency of technology, competence, and innovation process where the interaction of firms with its partner eco system becomes crucial in defining the residual level of competence. Most of the innovation literature highlights the dichotomy of technology changes with innovation (Teece & Pisano, 1994; Nelson, 1995). Innovation as a mantra has been part and parcel of the industrial sector post the industrial revolution. Ehrnberg (1995) notes that despite having enormous amount of research time spent on innovation, its analysis and interpretations remain quite ambiguous. There have been studies to distinguish competence-enhancing innovations from incremental innovations (Anderson & Tushman, 1990; Green, Krieger, & Vavra, 1997).
