Theoretical Isolation and Symmetry in the Resource-based View

Hallberg, Niklas Lars LU (2010) Academy of Management Annual Meeting, 2010
Abstract
Theorizing simplifies reality by means of "isolation" whereby some phenomena or aspects thereof are excluded from consideration. Using the case of the resource-based view, we discuss how theorists isolate. We develop a case for symmetrical isolations, show that the RBV violates a symmetry requirement, argue that a more symmetrical RBV implies novel insights in value creation and appropriation, and outline research heuristics based on the notion of symmetry.
