New to this Edition

  • Chapter 3 on competitive advantage has been revised to clarify the role of resources (factors of production) in the establishment of a firm's competitive advantage. Jay Barney's VRIO model is also explicitly discussed for the first time.

  • Chapter 5 on business level strategy has been further revised to streamline the presentation, tighten up the discussion of business level strategies, introduce the concept of value innovation, and discuss the implication of "blue ocean strategy" for business level strategy choices.

  • Chapters 12 and 13 have been combined into one chapter (now Chapter 12) and the presentation has been significantly tightened to focus on the key issues.

  • To ensure the highest quality, Charles Hill and Melissa Shilling wrote all of the cases in this edition. Twenty full-length cases and 12 shorter cases cover all relevant issues discussed in the text. Cases are available for use in the MindTap┬« digital learning solution for this book, as well as by custom order.
