    Abstract: PC industry is a highly competitive industry. In this fast changing environment,
    no company can simply rely on basic core competencies to stay-up with the
    market & competitions. The growth of global demand for PCs has reached a
    plateau in recent years, and as products are becoming commoditized the
    differentiation between products are hardly distinguishable. And price war is
    inevitable.
    This study investigated how does a global computer company build and manage
    its dynamic capabilities to stay competitive and make appropriate adjustment to
    leverage its dynamic capabilities in the new business. The study finds that in
    order to sustain competitiveness in the market, corporation needs to look inward
    and institute a process to manage product and service development and business
    risks. Having good products and customer relationship are just the starting
    point for a successful business. A continuous learning system can help
    company to constantly strive for better improvement and in a long run this
    becomes a strong driving factor to improve operation excellence. It takes
    persistent and relentless drive for improvement to make a good company to
    great.
    When a company is going to start a new business and break an existing model,
    one of the effective approaches is to form a special task team that is given the
    full ownership in making sure the project is successful. In addition, senior
    management team needs to work closely with the project team via regular
    meetings and to offer help in clearing roadblocks within the organization and
    allowing team to think out-of-box and propose necessary changes. Without
    management support and foster, the chance of success for the special task team is
    minimal.
