Mobility Barriers

Mobility barriers relate to the difficulty that other firms would have in changing their operations to converge on other firms. If low mobility barriers exist, then incumbent organizations would be able to easily acquire the necessary resources and capabilities to adjust their organization to imitate another (likely more successful) organization. On the other hand, if mobility barriers are high, then firms already in the market would have a much harder time adjusting their operations – allowing for any strategic distinctiveness by the organization to be maintained.
