Overview

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: B, , language: English, abstract: The main focus of the resource based theory of a firm is the acquisition of sustainable competitive advantage over other firms in the industry (Olalla, 1999). The uniqueness of a firm's resources is considered as the basis for the strategic competitive edge achieved by the firm (Acedo, Barroso, and Galan, 2006). The concept of corporate politics also suggest that individuals express political behaviour targeted at acquiring power or a competitive edge over other individuals aimed at achieving personal or group interests within an organization (Vigoda, 2000). Thus this study seeks to explore a possible linkage between the themes of the resource based theory and the expression of political behaviours within a firm.
