How can small business benefit from the “Strategy-As-Practice” (SAP) approach to integrate their
strategy and the resource-based view (RBV)? The paper, as a first step of research, explores some
background and justification for this integration, provides “conceptual connections” between the RBV
and strategy, as well as a brief description of future empirical research to test that integration. The
objective is to demonstrate that using SAP offers a valuable opportunity toward this integration in small
firms. The specific combination of small business settings, of the SAP approach, and of the idiosyncratic
needs for the strategy-RBV integration fit to produce the right set of circumstances to progress toward
this “integration” goal.
