    Abstract

    Contribution presents results which were acquired by means of application of original method of regional competitiveness evaluation. This method was verified on the example of 14 Czech regions (kraje) and one consists of three steps: evaluation of business environment quality (16 factors concerning of business, labour, infrastructural, regional and local, price and environmental prerequisites for enterprise), evaluation of human resources utilization (based on information about unemployment level and share of so-called sensitive industries, that are threatened by strong competition) and evaluation of innovative potential (based on information about number of innovative companies and number of employees in important innovative companies). Given regions were divided into 3 types and 6 subtypes according to their total competitive position. Possibilities of practical utilization of acquired results were tested on background of defined development scenarios: progressive scenario (2 classified regions) growth scenario (8 regions) and adaptation scenario (4 regions).
