This is the assumption of resource heterogeneity.
RBV can be seen as a reaction against the positioning school and its somewhat prescriptive approach which focused managerial attention on external considerations, notably industry structure.
The so-called positioning school had dominated the discipline throughout the s.
In contrast, the emergent resource-based view argued that the source of sustainable advantage derives from doing things in a superior manner; by developing superior capabilities and resources. Barney stated that for resources to hold potential as sources of sustainable competitive advantage, they should be valuable, rare, imperfectly imitable and not substitutable now generally known as VRIN criteria.

Concept[ edit ] Achieving a sustainable competitive advantage lies at the heart of much of the literature in both strategic management and strategic marketing. A key insight arising from the resource-based view is that not all resources are of equal importance, nor possess the potential to become a source of sustainable competitive advantage.
In addition, management must invest in organisational learning to develop, nurture and maintain key resources and competencies. In the resource-based view, strategists select the strategy or competitive position that best exploits the internal resources and capabilities relative to external opportunities.
Given that strategic resources represent a complex network of inter-related assets and capabilities, organisations can adopt many possible competitive positions. Rare - not available to other competitors.
Imperfectly imitable - not easily implemented by others. Non-substitutable - not able to be replaced by some other non-rare resource. Definitions[ edit ] Given the centrality of resources in terms of conferring competitive advantage, the management and marketing literature carefully defines and classifies resources and capabilities.
Resources[ edit ] Barney defines firm resources as: This comparative advantage enables firms to produce marketing offerings that are either a perceived as having superior value or b can be produced at lower costs.
Therefore, a comparative advantage in resources can lead to a competitive advantage in market position.The values of the Cronbach's α exceeded the recommended threshold of for each of the constructs ().
3 A CFA was also conducted for this set of metrics. A LISREL-type measurement model was also estimated for the five constructs. A good overall model fit was achieved. The resource-based view (RBV) is a managerial framework used to determine the strategic resources with the potential to deliver marketing, supply chain management and general business.
there is general agreement, within the literature, that the resource-based view is much more flexible than Porter's prescriptive approach to. This can be performed using the Porter's framework. RBV support the view that resources use and capabilities developed are hard to imitate by rivals.
The assignment is meant to critically analyse the relationship between resource-based view (RBV) and firm's performance in order to achieve sustainable competitive advantage. RBV and its. Published: Thu, 09 Aug This report reviews empirical studies of the resource-based view (RBV) and examines the benefits and limitations of RBV as the “best” strategy route in the developing a firm’s .
Internal Analysis Inputs to Strategy. Discuss the value of using Porter’s competitive strategies of cost leadership, differentiation, and market segmentation. The resource-based view (RBV) of strategy holds company assets as the primary input for overall strategic planning, emphasizing the way in which competitive advantage can be.
Porter's Five Forces Framework is a tool for analyzing competition of a business. It draws from industrial organization (IO) economics to derive five forces that determine the competitive intensity and, therefore, the attractiveness (or lack of it) of an industry in terms of its profitability.
An "unattractive" industry is one in which the effect of these five forces reduces overall profitability.
