Include: assets, capabilities, processes, information, and knowledge of the organization The goal of organizations is to create and sustain as many competitive advantages as possible. Sustainable Competitive Advantage Competitive advantage Providing greater value for customers than competitors can. Sustainable competitive advantage A competitive advantage that other companies have tried unsuccessfully to duplicate and have, for the moment, stopped trying to duplicate. Four Requirements for Sustainable Competitive Advantage The VRINE Model Five basic characteristics that determine whether a resource or capability can help a firm compete and achieve superior performance: VRINE Value – A resource or capability is valuable if it enables a firm to take advantage of opportunities or to fend off threats in its environment. Rarity – is the resource scarce relative to demand. Imitability – The rate at which a firm's underlying resources, capabilities, or core competencies can be duplicated by competitors. VRINE Non-substitutability – A competitor cannot achieve the same benefit by using different combinations of resources and capabilities. Exploitability – A company’s ability to get the value out of any resource or capability that it may generate. Strategy Making Process Assess – does the current strategy warrant changes to sustain a competitive advantage. Analyze – examine internal strengths and weaknesses as well as external threats and opportunities. Select – the type of strategy that will improve the strategic performance.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
