  • The Dynamic Capabilities Frameworks In The Industrial Economy

    The structure-performance paradigm of industrial economy has been one of the most popular conceptual framework models in analyzing competitive advantages of firms. Porter’s Five Forces epitomize these frameworks, which only focus on analyzing suppliers, customers and the threats of a new entry in the market. While these theoretical frameworks have been helpful in providing insightful information, they hardly reveal the prevailing logic of value creation. As a result, new bases of competitive advantage are rapidly gaining popularity due to technological changes that have transformed the global business landscape. The emergence of new models has given a different view of competitive advantage arguing that firms should possess dynamic capabilities to topple others in the industry. According to Teece, Pisano, and Shuen (1997), dynamic capabilities is “the firm 's ability to integrate, build, and reconfigure internal and external competences to address rapidly changing environments,” (p. 516). The Dynamic Capabilities Framework provides a “comprehensive” and “multidisciplinary” approach which is essential in managerial decision-Making. It is the aim of this paper to identify and demonstrate how the dynamic capabilities help to achieve a firm’s competitive…

  • Native American Creation Stories Analysis

    matter the people, no matter the ideals, the wonder at creation is driven by curiosity; stories of creation exist in every culture you find, and even though each story varies greatly in characters and settings, they all revolve around an indescribable reason for their similarities.

  • Creationism Argumentative Essay

    I don’t remember ever asking where it all came from. I grew up in what was, for the most part, a highly educated and progressive environment with little exposure to much else – I remember many happy hours spent with those glossy DK children’s books and I’m sure I came across early humans at some point – but I don’t know that I was aware of anything but evolution until middle school. I had been introduced to the creation story from the bible in school, but with it came various Native American…

    Hence phrases like “Let the earth sprout vegetation” and “Let the earth bring forth,” as well as the emphasis on the ability of all life to reproduce via natural processes (e.g., “trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind”).
