A critical review of Biedenbach et al, 2008, The Challenge of Organizing Change in Hypercompetitive Industries: A Literature review, Journal of Change management, vol.8, No.2,
The study is overall done relatively well thus it is a good paper but there is some limitations. Biedenbach?s study indicates some authors being skeptical of hypercompetition. Biedenbach et al (2008) indicates that hypercompetition is definitely present and supports this with a study indicating sustained competitive advantage. In this study hypercompetition is a required condition in order for Biedenbach?s argument to be valid since it is looking at the challenge of organizational change in hypercompetitive industries. This condition is definitely present in the past, present, and will definitely be around in the future due to the constant change in many industry environments.
