Abstract: This study is to examine the relationship between organizational culture and resources integration model. Based on resource-based theory, this study argues that different organizational cultures have different impacts on resources integration model, which in turn contributes to strategic flexibility. Our study undertook a survey of 137 effective samples from manufacturing industries and developed a model of PLS (Partial Least Squares). The empirical results confirm the reliability and validity of measurement scales. The findings show that organizational cultures do contribute to strategic flexibility through resources integration. Manufacturing managers should advocate the adoption of cultures with authoritative control and risk aversion, which will play an important role in external resources integration model through borrowing, alliance, and collaboration


Keywords: Resource-based theory, Resources integration model, Strategic flexibility, PLS (Partial Least Squares)
