Sustainable Competitive Advantage

   

Definition: Sustainable Competitive Advantage is a form of competitive advantage in which the company possesses value creating things or capabilities that cannot be duplicated or imitated by other firms (Competitive Defendability), nor can they be made redundant by developments in the environment (Environmental Consonance). Therefore SCA could be defined as the prolonged benefit of formulating and implementing some unique value-creating strategy not simultaneously being implemented by any current or potential competitors along with the inability to duplicate or imitate the benefits of this strategy and the absence of threatening market developments.
