A resource-based view of retail competitive advantage
Evans, Jody, Bridson, Kerrie, Byrom, John and Medway, Dominic 2004, A resource-based view of retail competitive advantage, in ANZMAC 2004 : marketing accountabilities and responsibilities, conference proceedings, ANZMAC, Dunedin, N.Z., pp. 1-7.
This paper investigates the relationships between brand, market and learning orientation with competitive advantage in the context of the UK retail industry. The results indicate that both brand and learning orientations have a significant positive relationship with competitive advantage. However, market orientation was not found to have a significant influence on retail competitive advantage. These findings suggest that market orientation may result in competitive parity only, while superiority in the retail sector is dependent on the speed of earning and the application of knowledge in the form of a strong brand orientation.
