Relationship Between Isolating Mechanisms / Barriers of Imitation and Company Size
Does anyone know an article that deals with the relationship between isolating mechanisms/barriers of imitation and company size? Despite a thorough literature review I did not find any research. With isolating mechanisms I specifically mean "unique historical conditions and path dependency", "resource interconnectedness", "social complexity" and "causal ambiguity (tacitness, complexity, specificity)". I really find this surprising because the relationship between for instance the size of a company and its resource interconnectedness seems to be quite obvious as I would assume that the bigger a company becomes, the more interconnected its resources will be. I would be very glad to receive some feedback from the experts of this forum. Kind regards, Paul.
