    1.0 INTRODUCTION


    VRIO is a strategic tool used to diagnose and understand the significance of a company’s resources and capabilities. While assessing their strategic position in the market, companies utilise the VRIO tool to understand whether their resources and capabilities can help them sustain competitive advantage based on an assement of whether they are Valuable, Rare, Inimitable and supported by the organization competitive advantage (Johnson et al 2017). 
    The more a firm’s resources and capabilities meet the VRIO criteria, the better its ability to sustain competitive advantage. Through analysing resources and capabilities, organizations are able to realize industry segments that are well aligned with their strengths and weaknesses (Grant 2016). In this section, we will use VRIO analysis to analyse the company’s resources and capabilities and determine whether the company has enough unique resources and capabilities that are Valuable, Rare, Inimitable and Non-substitutable to provide profitable and sustained competitive advantage.
