Shouldn't the VRIO framework page be merged with this? I was taught that approaches to analyzing according to RBV were VRIO/VRIN, or DCIA (durable, competitively superior,inimitiable, and appropriable). This is the first time I have ever seen something so related in Wikipedia not have a link between pages. (talk) 06:50, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

I have made extensive changes to the lemma, leaving much of the original text in place but adding a lot more. In addition, many references are added. I've mentioned the original page number w.r.t. the article, to simplify researching. Also, after looking for some more information on the Kay citation on EBSCO and Google Scholar (and finding little evidence that substantiated a reference) have removed it.

There is no reference for the Kay citation. Anyone know what it refers to? I can't find it.


I suspect it means John Kay 1992/93?

- Kieran, Bath, UK

The reference to the Kim and Park (2006) citation is also missing, as is the reference to Cottam et al (2001). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:32, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

1: Unable to find the references for Kim and Park (2006)and Cottam et al (2001)

2: Started out the wikification with Barney's references

3: Enhanced wikification - Amit & Shoemaker done

Some further comments[edit]

Short obs... VRIN at end of para 1 needs to link to the new Barney page that is being created or already exists? Sorry short of time right now as marking, so if someone else can do it... :) Kay is not an RBV player if we are referring to his 1992 work - that is based on Williamson and Coase's work, though like everyone else he jumped onto the bandwagon in the late 90s. This is a common mistake, BTW, and we should try and get it right....the confusion arises because he talks about distinctive capabilities, but they aren't quite the same thing as in the RBV - they come from a systems perspective really. Shall dig around on Kim, again this may also not be quite try correctly placed in here ...more next week.
