Intel now world leader in microchips (annual sales, $30 billion), but Silicon Valley's linchpin lately slipping; stepped down as Intel's chairman emeritus; gave half of fortune to

“Every competitive advantage is predicated upon a particular set of conditions that exist at a particular point in time for particular reasons. Many of history’s seemingly unassailable advantages have proved transitory because the underlying factors changed. The very existence of competitive advantage sets in motion creative innovations that, as competitors strive to level the playing field, cause the advantage to dissipate.”

The RBV assumes that firms are endowed with different bundles of resources. These may include: locations, brand names, distributions channels, patents, cultures etc.
Resourced Based View (RBV)
The RBV seeks to understand what resources are important and what a firm needs to do to protected and renew their important resources.
The resource must have value by adding value to the customer or lower the producers costs. (Patented 8 track technology is no longer valuable)
The resource must have limited access. (Eg. Tangible like Oil field, retail space, Prime time TV or intangible skilled labor and sales channels.)
The resource does not have an abundant substitute. (eg. Skilled labor can be substituted with automation.)
The owner must be able to capture the value created. (eg. Public roads vs. toll roads)
