Example text

Others may lead a firm to conceive of and implement strategies that reduce its effectiveness and efficiency. Still others may have no impact on a firm’s strategizing processes. However, those attributes of a firm’s physical, human, and organizational capital that do enable a firm to conceive of and implement strategies that improve its efficiency and effectiveness are, for purposes of this discussion, firm resources (Wernerfelt, 1984). ’’ How then can one determine which aspects of these firm attributes constitute resources that ‘‘enable a firm to conceive of or implement strategies that improve its efficiency and effectiveness’’ – and importantly, which do not?

Since Barney’s conceptualization of resources is founded on the use of ‘‘environmental’’ strategy models derived from industry structural analysis, the RBV’s view of resources can only be applicable within those environments that are well described by those models, and the RBV as articulated by Barney has no actual basis for its claim to provide a general ‘‘view’’ of resources. Thus, by ‘‘outsourcing’’ the basic conceptual task of characterizing resources to ‘‘environmental models,’’ the RBV fails to offer a systematic, generally applicable conceptual basis for characterizing resources as primitive entities on which to construct a general strategy theory – or even a consistent ‘‘view’’ within strategy.

Points to an important complementarity between environmental models of competitive advantage and the resource-based model. These environmental models help to isolate those firm attributes that exploit opportunities and/or neutralize threats, and thus specify which firm attributes can be considered as resources [emphasis added]. The resource-based model then suggests what additional characteristics that [sic] these resources must possess if they are to generate sustained competitive advantage. Taken together, these statements clarify the RBV approach to conceptualizing ‘‘strategically valuable resources’’: Resources are those firm attributes that help a firm ‘‘exploit opportunities or neutralize threats’’ in the firm’s environment, and by so doing are ipso facto ‘‘strategically valuable’’ and ‘‘strategically relevant’’ resources.
