Nham Phong Tuan, Nguyen Thi Tuyet Mai


This paper focuses on applying the resource-based view (RBV) of firms and industrial organization (IO) of
strategic management field to explain performance in supporting industries in Hanoi - Vietnam. Specifically, we
based our research on the integrated framework of RBV and IO and reviewed previous empirical researches
before deciding on testing relationships among organizational capabilities, industry effects, competitive
advantage and performance. A multivariate analysis of survey responses of 102 firms belonging to supporting
industries in Hanoi city - Vietnam indicates that the firm’s organizational capabilities contribute to its
competitive advantage that in turn, affects its performance and mediates the organizational
capabilities-performance relationship, and that industry effects have both direct and indirect impact on
competitive advantages. These findings have considerable implications for academics as well as practitioners.
