A Critical Review of the Resource-based View of the Firm
University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The Resource-based View of the Firm is a contemporary and promising theory that provides insights on both strategic and organizational issues. This paper provides a thematic overview of critiques that have been voiced on the RBV’s theoretical status, in specific its definitions, its theoretical and empirical methodology and the deficiencies in the theory. RBV critics are welcomed as an important way to enhance the theoretical soundness of what Williamson (1999, p.1093) characterized as a wouldbe theory.
