- The resource-based view and sustainable competive advantage: the case of a financial services firm
- Barry, Carol A.; Clulow, Valerie; Gerstman, Julie
- The resource-based view (RBV) of the firm is a theory that has been explored in academic literature as a means of explaining competitive advantage and, in turn, superior performance amongst firms. In this paper it is argued that the model developed by Fahy offers a concise picture of the nature and role of key resources in strategic management but this picture needs further empirical development. A research approach based on a face-to face interview is used to explore the process by which a high-performing firm in the financial services industry in Australia identifies, develops, deploys and protects its key intangible assets and capabilities in sustaining competitive advantage.
