...Q1. What is resource based view of a firm? Ans. The resource-based view (RBV) is a way of viewing the firm and in turn of approaching strategy. Fundamentally, this theory formulates the firm to be a bundle of resources. It is these resources and the way that they are combined, which make firms different from one another. It is considered as taking an inside-out approach while analyzing the firm. This means that the starting point of the analysis is the internal environment of the organization. Resources of the firm can include all assets, capabilities, organizational processes, firm attributes, information and knowledge. In short resources can be considered as inputs that facilitate the organization to perform its activities. An organization’s resource should have four attributes to provide the potential for competitive advantage. These form the VRIN characteristics. Valuable - When resources are able to bring value to the firm they can be a source of competitive advantage. Rare - Resources have to deliver a unique strategy to provide a competitive advantage to the firm as compared to the competing firms. Consider the case where a resource is valuable but it exists in the competitor firms as well. Such a resource is not rare to provide competitive advantage Inimitable - Resources can be sources of sustained competitive advantage if competing firms cannot obtain them. Consider the case where a resource is valuable and rare but the competing organizations can copy them......

Resource and Competences + Distinctive Resources and Competences

...benefits in relation to Microsoft's products. For a variety of reasons including unique skills, it is difficult for competitors to imitate Microsoft's core competences. When trying to identify a core competence, it is often easy to mistake them for scarce or unique resources i.e. resources rather than skills or production technologies. Also often skills and production technologies do not amount to a core competence or resource because they do not comply with one or more of the three tests. They are the thresholds that the organization must achieve to remain competitive. Threshold competences and scarce resources may not provide access to a variety of markets, may not be so significant to customers and may be less difficult to imitate. In summary there are core competences and scarce resources, and threshold competences and threshold resources. In order to be competitive an organization needs material resources such as premises, a factory or offices - depending on the nature of business of course. Material resources tend to be the most straightforward to achieve. Then an organization needs to achieve the right balance between Human Resources, training and recruitment. This state is more difficult to achieve. Intangible resources, including core competences are the most difficult and challenging to achieve. This is depicted in the diagram above. In fact they drive competitive advantage. References. Prahalad, C.K. and Hamel, G (1990) The Core Competence of the Corporation,......

...these variations. Is it random or systematic? Are some organizations simply less perfect than others, or are different designs better for different situations? Contingency Theory In contrast to the classical scholars, most theorists today believe that there is no one best way to organize. What is important is that there be a fit between the organization's structure, its size, its technology, and the requirements of its environment. This perspective is known as "contingency theory" and contrasts with the perspective of classical theorists like Weber, Taylor, Fayol, etc. who thought that there probably was one way to run organizations that was the best. Size This refers to capacity, number of personnel, outputs (customers, sales), resources (wealth). Blau's studies show that differentiation (# of levels, departments, job titles) increases with size, but at a decreasing rate. In contrast, the % of the organization that is involved in administrative overhead declines with size, leading to economies of scale. Increasing size is also related to increased structuring of organizations activities but decreased concentration of power. Managerial practices, such as flexibility in personnel assignments, extent of delegation of authority, and emphasis on results rather than procedures, are related to the size of the unit managed. Technology/Task Consider check processing at a bank. This activity is usually performed by a business unit that is highly formalized, has a......

...QUALITATIVE CHARACTERISTICS of accounting information ELEMENTS of financial statements Second level: Bridge between levels 1 and 3 OBJECTIVES of financial reporting First level: The "why"—goals and purposes of accounting. FIRST LEVEL: BASIC OBJECTIVES OBJECTIVE 3 Understand the objectives of financial reporting. As we discussed in Chapter 1, the objectives of financial reporting are to provide information that is: (1) useful to those making investment and credit decisions, who have a reasonable understanding of business and economic activities; (2) helpful to present and potential investors, creditors, and other users in assessing the amounts, timing, and uncertainty of future cash flows; and (3) about economic resources, the claims to those resources, and the changes in them. The objectives, therefore, broadly concern information that is useful to investor and creditor decisions. That concern narrows to the investors’ and creditors’ interest in receiving cash from their investments in, or loans to, business enterprises. Finally, the objectives focus on the financial statements, which provide information useful in assessing future cash flows. This approach is referred to as decision usefulness. To provide information to decision makers, companies prepare general-purpose financial statements. These statements provide the most useful information possible at the least cost. However, users do need reasonable knowledge of business and financial accounting......

The call to adventure is when the hero is needed for something. Refusal to the call is when the hero usually refuses to accept the call to adventure. Meeting the mentor is when the hero meets someone who helps him out and gives advice. Crossing the first threshold is when the hero leaves his regular life and takes on something else. Test, allies, and enemies is when the hero adjusts to the new world. Approach is like a preparation for the final test. The ordeal is similar to the climax. The reward is when it all pays off. The road back is when the hero returns to their regular life. Resurrection is when the hero realizes they have changed. Lastly, return to the elixir is when the hero receives their rewards/punishments. | Website -......

...Explain How our ability to get a job will be influenced by our availability and access to resources. It goes without saying that an individual’s ability to obtain a job is influenced by their availabilities and access to resources. This statement is explored in depth through various aspects, which includes age, socioeconomic status, gender, education, disabilities and ethnicity/culture.. Through the understandings of the concepts of each factor, it is distinctive that each factor presents its own positive and negative notions. It is determined that age is an influential factor in accessing resources, which reflects upon their ability to obtain a job. Knowledge and skills are refined once an individual matures as an adult. As individuals age they become more cultured and enlightened leading individuals to develop more skills and dexterity to excel at a specific profession that they are obliged to ascend. This concludes the individual to approach wide varieties of jobs and opportunities. On the other hand, individuals who are young may have low levels of experience preceding the young individual to decrease the levels of gaining jobs or opportunities. Lacking skills and knowledge may lead businesses to run slow and unfulfilled, which leads the business to not reach the preferred acquirements to success. For example, young individuals may have the difficulty to interact with customers with confidence, as they are not excelled within the placement of the job. This leads the......

...Resource Allocation Graphs Roger Henriksson Department of Computer Science Lund University The possibility of deadlock is an undesired property (to say the least) of safety-critical real-time systems. Therefore, a method to verify that a system cannot deadlock, or to detect possible deadlock situations, is of tremendous value. One such method is resource allocation graphs. As stated in Operating System Concepts by Peterson and Silberschatz [PS85], the occurrence of deadlock requires among other things that hold-wait situations exist and a circular chain of such hold-waits must exist. A resource allocation graph attempts to graphically illustrate all the hold-wait situations in a system. In this graph it is possible to search for cases of circular hold-wait. In their book, Peterson and Silberschatz [PS85] (Section 8.2.2) introduce a method for drawing resource allocation graphs. However, in their version the resource allocation graph shows all the hold-wait-states that exist at any one given point in time. This is a good tool for illustrating a transient state in the system, but in order to use their version of the graphs for detecting any possible deadlock situation we would have to draw a graph for each and every possible combination of execution state for all threads in the system. Then, each and every one of these graphs would have to be analysed for cycles indicating circular wait. This is clearly unpractical. Instead, we modify the method of drawing......
