Determinants of international competitiveness. West versus East
AbstractIn the article, on the basis of literature from the areas of management, strategic management, international management and sociology, there have been distinguished two types of firm's actions in order to achieve global competitive advantage by companies; firstly, internal actions and secondly, strategic manoeuvres. Based on such constructed structure, there are eminent features, which are indispensable to build a competitive advantage in contemporary, global reality. Taking into account characteristics which can influence developing a competitive advantage in an uncertain environment, they seem to reflect some of the attributes of Asian organizations – adjusting to continuous changes, “vigilance”, flexibility, pro-partnership, increasingly successful in a global scale.
