Competitive advantage implies the creation of a system that has a unique 
advantage over competitors. With the advent of globalization, the competition 
has become stronger and can be located anywhere in the world. The idea behind 
competitive advantage is to create customer value in an efficient and 
sustainable way. One approach to address this issue would be the use of 
resource-based theories of competitive advantage.


Resources are not simply raw materials but include all the inputs, such as 
intellectual capital, necessary to produce a good or service. Consider this as
