In this day and age, technology has become ever more prominent and omnipresent in our lives. As technological developments emerge and become more ubiquitous, it becomes vital to understand and analyze the impact of technology on society. Drivers of Competitiveness focuses on technology and seeks to analyze its causes and consequences on productivity and competitiveness and to examine the dynamic relationships between the different factors in various contexts. Building on state-of-the-art research, the book illustrates the global, institutional and technological factors that shape the performance of business and countries. Unlike most existing books in the field, Drivers of Competitiveness is a self-contained case book ideal for classroom use. The cases in the book are brand new. All of them are written in the context of the global financial crisis, providing a new perspective on the crisis that sheds light on its effect on competitiveness and on the diversity of responses by companies and countries. The cases and the analytical framework that emerges from the book constitute an essential kit for current and future managers, policy-makers and observers of global dynamics. Request Inspection Copy

Standards and regulations are an integral, if easily overlooked, part of our daily life. They determine whether a plug fits into a socket, whether food is safe for human consumption or whether a bank is allowed to take deposits. They are also an indispensable part of international trade. Using new evidence from ITC databases, this report reveals how standards and regulations are holding SME competitiveness back, but crucially, what SMEs and other stakeholders can do to make standards and regulations work for, and not against, SMEs. In this report, advice targeted at SME managers is presented, as well as how Trade and Investment Support Institutions and policymakers can influence the business environment to boost competitiveness, and integration into global markets.

In an age in which it is increasingly necessary for nations to consider their competitiveness and at a time when the world economy is facing recession, this book explores the possible trajectory of ASEAN arguably one of the most dynamic areas in the world as a regional economic and political bloc. This important and timely study focuses on the role of foreign direct investment in advancing the performance of ASEAN and the competitiveness of its firms, whereas other studies typically focus solely on the role of trade. The expert contributors an interdisciplinary assembly of economists, lawyers and political scientists present a comprehensive view of ASEAN s experiences over the past decade, addressing the industrial competitiveness of ASEAN and analysing the role of MNEs against the background of the challenges of integration. They illustrate that regional integration will only be a success if ASEAN s linkages are broadened with global partners through negotiations of Free Trade Agreements. The book concludes that although much still remains to be done, and many promises are still to be unveiled, ASEAN s coming of age is an historic milestone. Competitiveness of the ASEAN Countries will appeal to a broad readership including students, academics and researchers with an interest in Asian studies, international business, international economics and international law.

Essay from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, University of London, course: Intellectual Capital and Competitvness, language: English, abstract: Knowledge and competence of individuals and their recognized value for successful and sustainable economic activity is reflected in the term of intellectual capital. Companies that want to be successful and play an outstanding role in the fierce competition of global dynamic markets have to be able to continuously innovate. Competiveness more and more becomes a question of the ability to innovate; Creativeness, ideas, knowledge and competencies as well as the ability to collaborate are key factors to be competitive and therefore are important elements which have to be managed by today’s corporations. One can speak of a paradigm change going away from an industrial society where classical production factors (land, labour and capital) and tangible resources mattered, where labour was seen as a cost factor. The intangible paradigm on the contrary considers labour and therefore humans and their knowledge as the most important source of innovation and value creation. In that sense intellectual capital is actually substituting the other factors of production. This essay will elaborate what intellectual capital is, what elements it consist of and why it is important for corporate competiveness.

This paper evaluates Namibia's competitiveness using several traditional indicators; it concludes that, while the real effective exchange rate (REER) is in equilibrium at present?suggesting no imminent need for concern?the country may wish to improve its competitiveness by increasing educational attainment, reducing the skills mismatch, and diversifying its exports. Moreover, although Namibia scores relatively well on survey-based major indicators of structural competitiveness, the business environment can be made more conducive to private sector activity.
