Why do some firms perform better than others? What enables a firm to grow and take advantage of its opportunities?
Currently much discussion of these questions pivots around the ideas of competencies and capabilities, and the concept of the learning organization or knowledge-creating company. The Theory of the Growth of the Firm is a rich and pioneering work that addresses these questions and laid the foundation for this approach often referred to as the "resource based view of the firm." Edith Penrose analyzes managerial activities and decisions, organizational routines, and knowledge creation within the company and argues that they are critical to the ability of a firm to grow.

Edith Penrose is Visiting Professor at INSEAD and Johns Hopkins UniversityReview:
"The basic propositions Edith Penrose put forth in her book The Theory of the Growth of the Firm were provocative and path breaking...How good it is to have her book, long out of print, available again. Her insights, her arguments, still read fresh and right, and finally will get the attention that they warrant."--Richard R. Nelson, Columbia University
