Example text

In addition to its conceptual inadequacies, as explained below the RBV also suffers from some fundamental logic problems in its core proposition that firms can succeed by putting in place today resources that will be sources of strategic value (and competitive advantage) tomorrow. 6 Certainty. , assuming, for the sake of argument, that the Value Conundrum in identifying resources does not exist – all firms will (somehow) know which resources they should try to obtain today in order to compete successfully tomorrow.

Physical capital resources include the physical technology used in a firm, a firm’s plant and equipment, its geographic location, and its access to raw materials. Human capital resources include the training, experience, judgment, intelligence, relationships, and insight of individual managers and workers in a firm. Organizational capital resources include a firm’s formal reporting structure, its formal and informal planning, controlling, and coordinating systems, as well as informal relations among groups within a firm and between a firm and those in its environment.

But as the foregoing discussion and analyses have shown, Barney’s RBV framework fails to provide any consistent and 20 RON SANCHEZ conceptually adequate basis for identifying strategically valuable resources that can be the basis for superior strategies – and thus fails to provide a logical basis for its core proposition’s claim that managers can engage in resource-base strategizing that can improve a firm’s prospects for future competitive success. Thus, given the Value Conundrum in the RBV’s approach to identifying strategically valuable resources, and given the resulting problems that render the RBV’s core proposition logically indefensible and practically inoperable, it would actually be incorrect to agree with Barney (1986) that strategic success must result either from superior resource strategies or from luck.
