First-mover ( Dis ) Advantages : Retrospective and Link with the Resource-based View

  title={First-mover ( Dis ) Advantages : Retrospective and Link with the Resource-based View},
  author={Marvin B. Lieberman and David B. Montgomery},
This article reflects upon and updates our prize-winning paper, ‘First-mover advantages,’ which was published in SMJ 10 years ago. We discuss the evolution of the literature over the past decade and suggest opportunities for continuing research. In particular, we see benefits from linking empirical findings on first-mover advantages with the complementary stream of research on the resource-based view of the firm.  1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
