This work aims to evaluate the conceptual contributions from the area of System Dynamics (SD) to the Resource Based-View (RBV) Theory, a field of study in the Strategy area. With that aim in mind, a literature review of the Strategy field in the latest years was carried out and the contributions that SD can offer in this context were analyzed. Specifically, the strategic architecture proposed by Warren (2002) is presented: it employs the two concepts to make the analysis of dependencies between resources and their dynamic impacts on organizational performance possible. As a result, it was observed that some aspects that are not addressed by the RBV theory can receive important contributions from SD, such as the opportunity to build strategic models that permit simulation, making the analysis of the interdependence between tangible and intangible resources possible, considering not only the performance of the company at a point in time, but its temporal trajectory and dynamics. This work, therefore, proposes to  extend the studies on the applications of its results in the Strategy teaching area, through the use of educational simulators which are based on those two
