  7. How does cost competitiveness help the industry to crystallize thinking and build systems within your organization to minutely capture and evaluate the value of all the resources?

  8. How can researchers, who know less than the managers about the sources of advantage, understand and identify the sources and capabilities essential to the competitive advantage?
