Abstract

The study was designed to explore the distinctive attributes of firms' resources and their relationship with sustained competitive advantage (SCA). The emphasis is on the Human Resource-Based View (HRBV) of the firm and the strategic and managerial conditions under which human resources are a potential source of SCA. The objectives can be
stated more specifically as follow:
o To develop a resource-based view model of the firm that adequately describes the role of human resources, their
management and human resource practices in the attainment of sustained competitive advantage.

o To empirically test this model and in so doing estimate the contribution of human resources, their management and human resource practices to sustained competitive advantage.

o To revise the HRBV model in the light of the empirical findings.

Chapters I to 4 develop an HRBV model and its context. Chapters 5 to 8 deal with its empirical evaluation. Chapter 9 presents the conclusions of the empirical evaluation and revisions.
