Introduction. Understanding why firms are successful is a very basic question in strategy both from a practitioner and a research perspective. In the strategy and management literature, however, we are confronted with different analytical frameworks, applicable at different levels of analysis such as the industry and the national level, providing different answers! Needless to say there is a clear necessity to create more integrative strategy frameworks. This concluding chapter is devoted to this topic by briefly describing Porter's contribution to a more integrated and dynamic strategy framework.
