Global Competitive Strategy


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Globalization has fundamentally changed the game of business. Strategic frameworks developed for the analysis of purely domestic business necessarily fall short in the international business context. Managers and business students require alternative approaches to understand and cope with these far-reaching changes. We must learn to think globally in order to succeed. Global Competitive Strategy shows how we can do this by providing a unique set of strategic tools for international business. Such tools include the 'star analysis' that allows strategy makers to integrate geographic information with market information about the global business environment. Also introduced is the 'global value connection' that shows managers how to account for the gains from trade and the costs of trade. Aimed at MBA students taking courses in international strategy, consultants and practising managers with responsibility for strategic development, this 2007 book offers a comprehensive strategic framework for gaining competitive advantage in the global marketplace.

Competitive Strategy


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Competitive Strategy is a key driver of industrial growth and economic development. Professor Michael Porter’s treatise, formulated in 1980, remains the only integrated work on the subject to date. While its core concepts endure, it requires the holistic incorporation of additional insights and prescriptions, based on current and future trends. This book reviews Porter’s work in the context of the global economic forces and rapid technological changes that have affected businesses and their strategies from the mid-2000s. It focuses on select aspects of competitive strategy particularly affected by such forces and develops several novel constructs to strengthen and expand the core analytical framework of competitive strategy with a futuristic perspective. The book embeds the impact of technology throughout but recognises that a more focused and detailed analysis of the same has been presented in the author’s recent companion work, Technology and Competitive Strategy: Perspectives for Innovators, Differentiators and Followers. Each of the book’s chapters is dedicated to a unique facet of competitive strategy, with novel hypotheses and constructs supported by multiple real-life examples. The book will inspire professionals, business leaders, academicians and public policy makers involved in strategy and growth to appreciate issues and solutions in a broader and a more contemporaneous industrial and economic context.

One Political Economy One Competitive Strategy


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This book examines how firms adapt to the pressures of increasing international competition by testing the arguments on 'strategy specialization' proposed in the competitiveness literature in general, and by contributors to the 'varieties of capitalism' debate in particular. If different economies are characterized by distinct institutional arrangements, successful firms would be those that exploit the related comparative advantages and specialize in the competitive strategies facilitated by national institutions. One Political Economy, One Competitive Strategy? begins with an assessment of how many pharmaceutical firms in Germany, Italy, and the UK pursue strategies facilitated by national institutions governing the financial markets, antitrust activities, and the labour market. Quantitative analyses reveal that deviant firms, competing through institutionally unsupported strategies, outnumber conforming firms by far. Not only does this finding run counter to the expectations of the competitiveness literature, it brings up a whole new line of inquiry. How can firms compete through strategies that are not supported by national institutions? The book addresses this question and illustrates that firms do not necessarily exploit comparative institutional advantages, but that they can also circumvent institutional constraints. International markets and individual collaboration on a contractual basis allow firms to compete despite comparative institutional disadvantages. These findings suggest that trade liberalization does not lead to strategy specialization but to strategy diversification, depending on the inventiveness of entrepreneurs to develop individual approaches to compete.
