This text provides a survey of research inquiry as it concerns an organization's ability to achieve competitive advantage in an increasingly global economy. The essays draw upon the expertise of university scholars, all employed at AACSB accredited Business Schools. It provides insight concerning competitive advantage from three perspectives: hypotheses on the conditions under which firms can achieve competitive advantage; the importance of quantitative models in developing a theory of competitive advantage; and critiques of a positivist theory of competitive advantage.
