Two research traditions have analysed the boundaries of the ﬁrm. The ﬁrst tradition is the theoretical and empirical literature on the theory of the ﬁrm. The competing theoretical paradigms provide different and diverging interpretations of ﬁrms’ boundaries. In the last decade there has been a surge of interest in the internal resources of the ﬁrm. Drawing on the seminal work of Penrose (1959), the resource-based view of the ﬁrm has emerged as an alternative paradigm for theoretical interpretations of the business organisation. In contrast to the contractual view that maintains that a ﬁrm can be conceived as a nexus of contracts, the resourcebased view conceives a ﬁrm as an organised bundle of resources.
