This capability indicated that the products produced by the company were more efficient and quality than that of others. The results found that product configuration capabilities could improve product success, growth in product marketing reach and market share product. This study was expected to provided a contri­bution to both theoretical and practical knowledge of strategic management. Business players had focussed on developing dynamic capabilities to address the constantly changing business environment.
