Purpose: The main scientific purpose of this article is to present a proposition of a resource-based approach to the competencies of global organizations. Design/Methodology/Approach: In order to achieve the main goal of the article, theoretical literature review was chosen, in particular argumentative review, which could introduce problems, but certainly constitute the introduction to in-depth research, also empirical. Findings: The conducted research presented is a starting point for a thought process which, first of all, negates analysing the category of competencies in terms of an organization and, secondly, initiates a discussion in the literature concerning subsequent elements of the proposed set of characteristics, at the same time laying the groundwork for further empirical research. Practical Implications: The practical business implications concern mostly the necessity of changing organizational competencies, which should be done in a very short time in XXI century, in order to ensure a high degree of co-ordination, integration, specialization, and as a consequence – gaining a competitive advantage and competitiveness. Originality/value: In the article we propose an original set of competencies of global organizations resulting from the examination of the literature, developed on the basis of the RBV and leading to a global mindset which seems to be the only rational approach, especially in the light of the concept of strategizing and return to the empowerment of organizations.
