Abstract: The managerial cognition construct has been used in strategic management literature to illustrate various organisational phenomena related to organisational capabilities building and strategic outcomes. This article reviews the relevant literature to determine key dimensions of this construct and offer a reconceptualisation of managerial cognition. Based on the dynamic theory and managerial cognition perspective, this article distinguishes between cognition of environment and cognition of resources as two subsets of managerial cognition. This article then advances that cognition of the environment and cognition of resources can differentially and complementarily influence the creation of capabilities of an organisation and its competitive advantage.
