Knowledge and competitive advantage : the coevolution of firms, technology, and national institutions by Johann Peter Murmann( )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book compares the development of the synthetic dye industry in Great Britain, Germany, and the United States. The rise of this industry constitutes an important chapter in business, economic, and technological history because synthetic dyes invented in 1857 represent the first time that a scientific discovery quickly gave rise to a new industry. Although British firms led the industry for the next eight years, German firms dominated the industry for decades before World War I, while American firms played only a minor role during the entire period
China's innovation challenge : overcoming the middle-income trap by Arie Y Lewin( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The miracle growth of the Chinese economy has decreased from a compound annual growth rate of 10% to less than 7% in 2015. The two engines of growth - export on a scale never before witnessed and massive infrastructure investments - are reaching the point of diminishing returns. This poses the central question which is explored in this book - can China escape the middle-income trap? Assuming current political arrangements remain unchanged and that it does not or cannot adopt Western sociopolitical economic regimes, can China develop an indigenous growth model centered on innovation? This compilation gathers leading Chinese and other international scholars to consider the daunting challenges and complexities of building an innovation-driven Chinese growth model. Providing several comprehensive perspectives, it examines key areas such as the institutional system, technology, sociocultural forces and national policy. The analyses and their conclusions range from strong optimism to deep pessimism about China's future"--

Ernst Abbe's scientific management theoretical insights from a 19th century dynamic capabilities approach by Guido Buenstorf( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientific management is the label Frederick Taylor attached to the system of management devised by him. In this article we present our discovery of very different scientific management principles that were developed roughly concurrently with Taylorism by German physicist Ernst Abbe, then owner and managing director of the Carl Zeiss optical instruments company. Abbe's management principles as well as the social philosophy underlying them are accessible to present-day theorists because he laid them down both in the statutes of a foundation he founded and in an extensive commentary on the statutes. These original accounts offer a remarkable opportunity to enrich our current understanding of how managers can create and recreate firm capabilities that allow firms to enjoy a long-term leadership position. Abbe develops an early account for managing a science-based firm and securing its long-term competitiveness, giving detailed prescriptions with regard to the kind and scope of firm activities, its organizational setup, and its labor relations. Abbe's management principles exhibit striking parallels to important contemporary theories of organization such as the Resource-Based Theory of the Firm and the related Dynamic Capabilities Theory of the Firm, and are even today able to indicate issues that warrant further theoretical elaboration. In this article, we give an outline of Abbe's thought, highlight some of its most characteristic features, and set them into relation to present-day management theory
