Описание: This book contributes to the never-ending search for higher firm rents. Firms can be defined as a set of resources and skills. Traditional theory on strategic management hardly examines the unique and invaluable character of management competence as the key resource of the firm. Management competence is two-fold. It expresses the ability to manage and to reallocate resources according to changing market requirements. The resource structure of a firm does not stop at the company level, but has to include suppliers and customers as external resources. This book uses state-of-the-art methodologies to deliver empirical evidence for the value of management competence in leading to both operational excellence and financial success. Thereby, it is able to provide deeper insights into the quest on firm performance differences.

Описание: There continues to be much interest in the business and academic communities in the concept of strategic competencies or core capabilities, in other words, how organisations define and differentiate themselves. More recently, this field has fragmented into a number of related disciplines with subtle differences in focus: Knowledge management -- how organisations identify, share and exploit their internal competencies, in particular the knowledge of individuals.Organisational learning -- the relationship between individual and organisational knowledge and how organisations 'unlearn' past competencies and acquire new competencies.Strategic management -- how competencies can be assessed, and how these contribute to performance.Innovation management -- how such competencies are translated into new processes, products and services.This book aims to integrate strategic and knowledge management approaches to capability building with the development of competencies by bringing together the latest research and practices from international experts in the field. This third edition has been fully updated with five new chapters.
