Measuring company level competitiveness in Porter's Diamond model framework
In: FIKUSZ 2008 Business Sciences - Symposium for Young Researchers: Proceedings
In this paper we introduce a methodology to measure micro- (company-) level competitiveness based on the theoretical framework of Porter's Diamond Model. The database includes a 500-company sectoral representative sample with companies employing at least one employee in addition to the owner. We identified 8 variables from the database, and with the help of factor analysis reproduced the 4 edges of the Diamond Model. After summing the factor values we split the normally distributed continuous competitiveness index into 5 equal sections in order to get the final competitiveness categories. We investigate and prove that these categories provide a relevant framework to measure the relative competitiveness of the firms represented in the database.
