Higher-order industrial Capabilities and competitive advantage
This paper makes some analytical suggestions to help explain the advantages that firms derive from clustering or networking. The concept of 'higher-order capabilities' is introduced to identify the assets which may give firms in such clusters or networks some competitive advantages over firms that are not members of such clusters. Higher-order capabilities are non-traded interdependencies among firms, and may be approached in terms of the resource-based view of recent strategic thinking.
