This paper fills the prior research gap through a questionnaire survey of 54 firms together with a number of interviews drawn from the Iranians information and communication technology (ICT) industry. The results suggest that capabilities of studding or utilizing technological opportunities, core technology capability, and independence of R&D decisions are important to firm reorganization in a competitive environment, whereas over duty’s to survive technologies may limit a firm's reorganization especially in such environment. Moreover, different types of competitive environment need different types of technological capabilities to increase firm unusualness. This paper provides to the survive theory by examining the joint effect of technology capability and competitive environment on a firm's reorganization.
