Ervina and Md Nor (2005) further suggested that apart from prior academic achievement which affect their absorptive capacity, further studies need be done to find other possible variables that can affect their performance in higher learning institutions.
7) There is a significant relationship between absorptive capability and the New Product Development Performance.
Cohen and Levinthal (1990) modeled absorptive capacity as being related to the ability to conduct three basic activities: acquiring new knowledge, assimilating it into the firm, and then exploiting it for the company's benefit.
Huber (1991) defines knowledge acquisition as the process through which knowledge is obtained, the assimilation of knowledge being conditioned by variables such as absorptive capacity, motivation of the recipient, and incentives for the transmitter.

shows that the limp plastic plate has poor absorptive properties.
In addition, absorptive capacity and motivational factors, such as cooperative cultural norms and collective rewards, two of the four conditions needed by organizations to exchange resources (Nahapiet and Ghoshal, 1997), are likely to increase the relationship between strong intrafirm networks and intellectual capital.
The resulting medley embodies the theme of the many diverse facets Native American identity, and cultural survival amidst an ever-changing and absorptive world.
CoQsource is composed of millions of colloidal droplets that readily solubilize CoQ10 in the GI-tract, thereby improving the transport of CoQ10 through the aqueous phase of the GI-lumen to the absorptive epithelium and hence its bioavailability.
