Buuck Chair, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota, USA) "In this book Mishra asks the big question about what underlies a firm's competitive advantage, and nail the answer by detailing an entrepreneurial approach to value creation and appropriation." (Dean A. Shepherd, Ray and Milann Siegfried Professor of Entrepreneurship, University of Notre Dame, USA; Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Business Venturing) "Creating and Sustaining Competitive Advantage is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the drivers of competitive advantages as it relates to value creation. Mishra has brought a fresh perspective to the role of incentive structures on value creation within the entrepreneurial firm as it relates to competitive advantage. The role of competitive advantage is often misunderstood by academics, and even more by entrepreneurs. Mishra allows us to think more clearly about the important relationships that matter." ( J. William Petty, W.W. Caruth Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance, Baylor University, USA) "Mishra originates new theories about modern corporations leading to establishing and maintaining a competitive advantage. Such is based on the creation of entrepreneurial rent and managerial surplus that increase with entrepreneurial management incentives. Thus, entrepreneurial management, opportunity recognition, and business models ensure success overtime and within environmental uncertainty and complexity. Mishra modernizes and expands extant strategic theories to encompass the entrepreneurial rent creation and high-powered managerial incentives." (Ramona K. Zachary, Peter S. Jonas Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship, Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College, City University of New York, USA) "In his very insightful new book, Creating and Sustaining Competitive Advantage, Mishra integrates the critical factors that give rise to competitive advantage. The book relays these insights in a practical and very concise manner. By dissecting and further elaborating on the factors that help create and sustain competitive advantage, Mishra provides the intellectual toolset that can be effectively used by entrepreneurs as well as decision makers at all levels of the business to create value for their stake holders."
