Resource-based view (RBV) theory has been discussed in strategic management and Information Systems (IS) for many years.
Although many extensions and elaborations of RBV have been published over the years, to a considerable extent, most of them
have identified critical resources and investigated the impact of resources on competitive advantage and/or other organization
issues such as corporative environmental performance, profitability, and strategic alliance. Nevertheless, the orchestration
of resources seems to influence these results. There still remains the issue of resource relations in an organization, the
internal interaction of resources, especially IT resources with non-IT resources and the process of IT resource interaction
with other resources within a firm which we have called resource impressionability. To fill these gaps in IS literature, we
propose the new concept of resource orchestration in order to answer resource impressionability issues during implementation of IT projects.
