Sameer Qaiyum (B.Tech, MBA) is Doctoral Researcher in Strategy at School of Management, Royal Holloway, University of London. He has strong interest in studying the constant oscillation of modern firms between Chamberlinean, Schumpeterian and Ricardian rents.
At the start of this century it was understood by all that Chamberlinean rent though not completely out, has gone out of favor. And as we move confidently forward in the second decade of this century, it is increasingly becoming clear to modern firms that the pool of Ricardian rent is also increasingly getting dried. To tackle this acute rent dissipation at all front, modern firms are desperately trying to learn Schumpeterian creative destruction. Resource Based View (RBV) and its dynamic version, Dynamic Capabilities are at present two mainstream theories to unearth this interesting and ground breaking pattern.
Making use of Dynamic Capabilities and RBV theories, Sameer is trying to understand the source, antecedent, character and consequence of new rent generating mechanisms in today’s modern economy.
Prior to starting his PhD, Sameer has been a career Business and Marketing strategist with a track record of successful project implementation for over 5 years in private sector across the globe.
