Abstract (Swedish)
This thesis aims to understand how a Born Global company that works as a Global
Virtual Team, operates to develop and reconfigure the organizational processes and
routines, in order to stay competitive in a dynamic environment. It is examined from a
Resource Based View, with a focus on the resource-picking and capability-building
mechanisms. In the case study company the Global Virtual Team is a crucial tool to
enable them to reach competitiveness through a resource-picking strategy. However,
being a Global Virtual Team also clearly sets the rules for how capabilities can be
developed. There is a balance between being able to generate competitiveness and
managing the Global Virtual Team, which becomes prominent when they grow.
