Sample text

However, valuable and rare organizational resources can only be sources of sustained competitive advantage if firms that do not possess these resources cannot obtain them . . these firm resources are imperfectly imitable. The VRIO notion of imperfect imitability as basis for identifying resources that can be sources of sustained competitive advantage may sound plausible, but on closer inspection the VRIO notion of imperfect imitability is seen to founder on the same conceptual and logical problems that arise in the VRIO’s notion of rarity.

In a related line of reasoning, Barney (1991, p. ’’ What Barney is essentially arguing is that for a resource to be a source of sustainable competitive advantage, managers cannot understand why or how a resource can be a source of sustainable competitive advantage (either because of the social complexity of the resource or because of causal ambiguity resulting from other factors), because if they did that knowledge would diffuse to other firms who could imitate the strategically valuable resource.

From a scientific perspective, however, such claims only add to the proliferation of ad hoc, tautological statements that lack any systematic conceptual and logical basis derived from the RBV for explaining firm success. Moreover, claims based on a me´lange of theories, models, and frameworks fail to provide empirical support for a consistent, coherent set of hypothesized explanations that can become the basis for prediction. As a result, the growing potpourri of RBV claims about resources lacks any systematic conceptual basis for arguing the generalizability of any specific findings.
