In order to successfully adapt in ever-changing social and economic environment, organizational members need to get a capacity to be open to accepting change, effectively leverage the knowledge assets accumulated inside and outside the company for pursuing new values. In this study, we defined such competence as generativity capacity and demonstrated mechanism for forming generativity capacity and an impact on job performance. We suggested absorptive capacity, tertius iungens orientation, use of information technology as antecedent variables of generativity capacity. For empirically verifying the proposed model, we collected sample data from 201 workers and conducted analysis using a structural equation modeling. The empirical analysis results revealed that all of the proposed antecedent variables significantly impacted on generativity capacity, which in turn had a significant effect on job performance. We expect that this study will provide researchers and managers who want to get a broader perspective on knowledge management beyond the boundaries with useful theoretical and practical implications.
