Only meaningful concept of competitiveness at the national level Productivity Porter interprets... Productivity it is not what industries a nation competes in that matters for prosperity, but how productively it competes in those industries Technology-and skill-intensive industries are crucial to raise productivity The productivity of domestic industries is fundamental to competitiveness (the importance of a favorable home base) The public and private sectors play different but interrelated roles in creating a productive economy So, try to be productive in everything you do!

Rivalry Factor Conditions Demand Conditions Determinants of National Competitive Advantage ( Michael E. Porter ) Classical doctrine ( Adam Smith, David Ricardo ) " A nation will export those goods that make most use of the factors with which it is relatively well endowed" Factors of Production ( standard economic theory ) labor, land, natural resources,capital, infrastructure - will determine the flow of trade Seoul National University, Graduate School of International Studies, Factor Conditions.

on new styles and manufacturing techniques and learn
about new textures and colors of leather" "The nation's companies benefit most when the suppliers themselves, are global competitors." Home-based competitiveness in related industries provides similar benefits A home-based related industry provides a source of entrants who will bring a novel approach to competing Competitiveness in a specific industry results from
convergence of the management practices and organizational modes " No one managerial system is universally appropriate- notwithstanding the current fascination with Japanese management" Company goals reflect the characteristics of national capital markets and the compensation practices for managers Individual motivation to work and expand skills is also important to competitive advantage. Outstanding talent is a scarce resource in any nation Nations tend to be competitive in activities that people admire or depend on- activities from which the nation's heroes emerge.
