In effect, the Value Conundrum is a symptom of the failure of the RBV to meet a basic first requirement for building a scientific theory about resources: The RBV fails to provide a systematic basis for describing resources that would lead to consistent characterizations of the functional and behavioral properties of resources and thereby support the generation of hypotheses about the cause-and effect relationships among resources that enable them to create strategic value. The requisite first step in a scientific approach to identifying strategically valuable resources would be to articulate a clear conceptual basis for describing resources that would lead to consistent characterizations of the functional or behavioral properties of resources that enable them to create strategic value.

Thus, any claims that resources can create strategic value must provide at least some explanation about the ways in which using resources can contribute to the creation of strategic value (and perhaps competitive advantage). Barney’s (1991) foundational paper suggests that resources may include physical, human, and organizational capital, but it provides no explanations as to why such distinctions might be relevant in understanding how resources actually create value. Further, the paper does not suggest any conceptual basis for systematically distinguishing the differential contributions to creating strategic value of (i) ways of using a firm’s resources (‘‘organizational processes’’ in Barney’s listing of possible resources (p.

Taken together, these statements clarify the RBV approach to conceptualizing ‘‘strategically valuable resources’’: Resources are those firm attributes that help a firm ‘‘exploit opportunities or neutralize threats’’ in the firm’s environment, and by so doing are ipso facto ‘‘strategically valuable’’ and ‘‘strategically relevant’’ resources. Notably, however, the RBV itself offers no ideas of its own as to how such strategically valuable resources can be identified. Rather, Barney suggests that ‘‘environmental models of competitive advantage’’ or traditional SWOT analysis (Barney, 1991, pp.
