Others may lead a firm to conceive of and implement strategies that reduce its effectiveness and efficiency. Still others may have no impact on a firm’s strategizing processes. However, those attributes of a firm’s physical, human, and organizational capital that do enable a firm to conceive of and implement strategies that improve its efficiency and effectiveness are, for purposes of this discussion, firm resources (Wernerfelt, 1984).

Resource-Base Strategizing and Luck Barney (1986) has argued that favorable current resource positions may result either from superior strategies in acquiring or developing firm resources, or from luck. 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.

This deficiency can only be remedied by developing a rigorous definition of resources that provides a consistent and coherent conceptual basis for distinguishing the different ways in which different kinds of firm attributes can contribute to creating strategic value and thus qualify as resources. Only then can strategy researchers hope to derive, test, and establish empirical support for generalizable theoretical statements about the role of resources in firm success. , from their uses of resources.
