Competitive strategy : techniques for analyzing industries and competitors by Michael E Porter( Book )

90 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 3,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now nearing its 60th printing in English and translated into nineteen languages, Michael E. Porter's Competitive Strategy has transformed the theory, practice, and teaching of business strategy throughout the world. Porter introduces his three generic strategies - lowest cost, differentiation, and focuswhich bring structure to the task of strategic positioning. He shows how competitive advantage can be defined in terms of relative cost and relative prices, thus linking it directly to profitability, and presents a whole new perspective on how profit is created and divided." "The ideas in the book address the underlying fundamentals of competition in a way that is independent of the specifics of the ways companies go about competing."--Jacket

Explores what makes a nation's firms and industries competitive in global markets and propels a whole nation's economy.

On competition by Michael E Porter( Book )

64 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Competition brings together, for the first time, more than a dozen of Porter's articles; two entirely new pieces written especially for this collection as well as eleven of his landmark articles from the Harvard Business Review. In addition, Porter contributes a special introduction, his first statement of how the whole range of his work fits together." "These essays develop some consistent themes: the key to profitability and growth - indeed to survival - is to stake out, and then constantly improve upon, a distinctive competitive position; prosperity arises from the ability to continually improve productivity; and much societal progress comes primarily through private-sector innovation. These themes have proven robust despite dramatic changes in the competitive landscape. On Competition will continue to provide the intellectual foundation for company and country strategies for years to come."--Jacket

Redefining health care : creating value-based competition on results by Michael E Porter( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Health care in the United States and other nations is on a collision course with patient needs and economic reality. Rising costs, mounting quality problems, and increasing numbers of citizens without health insurance are unacceptable--and unsustainable. In Redefining Health Care, Michael E. Porter and Elizabeth Olmstead Teisberg set forth a new vision of the health care system in which every actor is focused on improving value, as measured by health outcomes per dollar expended. The authors prescribe a powerful and actionable agenda for change"--Page 2 of cover

Can Japan compete? by Michael E Porter( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Can Japan Compete?, the world's leading thinker on competitive strategy, Michael Porter, and his colleagues, Hirotaka Takeuchi and Mariko Sakakibara, draw upon a decade of research to untangle the mystery of Japan's economic difficulties. Doing so is critical to forecasting Japan's economic future, which is of enormous importance to companies and countries everywhere. At a deeper level, however, the book reveals the enduring principles of company strategy and economic policy in modern global competition." "With a special introduction that addresses how Japan's economic health impacts business in the United States, this groundbreaking work reveals that there have long been two Japans - the familiar one that was highly competitive and another Japan, almost invisible, that was highly uncompetitive. If the well-known Japanese government policies and corporate practices explained the nation's success, as so many people believed, why didn't they work in so many large, important parts of the economy where the model was explicitly implemented? In the areas where Japan was competitive, why was profitability so low and the cost of living for Japanese citizens so high?" "Can Japan Compete? also examines why the Japanese economy stopped generating new export industries by the mid-1980s, and why seemingly invincible industries such as semiconductors faltered." "Professor Porter and his colleagues unravel this puzzle. Incisive and thought-provoking, the book provides a compelling framework for understanding the Japanese economic roller coaster and the lessons the rest of the world should learn from it. For Japan itself, the authors conclude that what is needed is nothing less than a new national economic strategy. The book outlines the steps necessary to restore Japan's economic vitality at a time when a new direction for the nation is desperately needed."--Jacket

Chancen für das deutsche Gesundheitssystem : von Partikularinteressen zu mehr Patientennutzen by Michael E Porter( Book )

21 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The German health care system is on a collision course with budget realities. Costs are high and rising, and quality problems are becoming ever more apparent. Decades of reforms have produced little change to these troubling trends. Why has Germany failed to solve these cost and quality problems? The reason is that Germany has not set value for patients as the overarching goal, defined as the patient health outcomes achieved per euro expended. This book lays out an action agenda to move Germany to a high value system: care must be
Perspectives on strategy : contributions of Michael E. Porter by F. A. J. van den Bosch( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to focus on the contribution of one of the most prominent scholars in the strategy field, Michael Porter, from both a practitioner, that is Chief Executive Officer (CEO), perspective, and from a research perspective. Using such a dual perspective may improve the relevance of strategy research for the business community. Four leading chief executives, two from European multinationals (Royal Dutch/Shell Group and Unilever N.V.) and two from important Dutch public organizations (the Port of Rotterdam and the Ministry of Economic Affairs), were invited to reflect on Porter's contributions to four levels of analysis: (1) business level strategy, (2) corporate level strategy, (3) regional competitiveness and finally (4) national competitiveness. Against this background, the book is structured as follows: Chapters 2 to 8 deal with the four mentioned levels of analysis from a dual perspective - theoretical and managerial. The two final chapters aim to find out how Porter's theories are related to each other and whether and how the different levels of analysis can be connected
