The competitive advantage of nations by Michael E Porter( Book )
94 editions published between 1989 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,053 libraries worldwide
"Based on research in ten leading trading nations, The Competitive Advantage of Nations offers the first theory of competitiveness based on the causes of the productivity with which companies compete. Porter shows how traditional comparative advantages such as natural resources and pools of labor have been superseded as sources of prosperity, and how broad macroeconomic accounts of competitiveness are insufficient. The book introduces Porter's "diamond," a whole new way to understand the competitive position of a nation (or other locations) in global competition that is now an integral part of international business thinking. Porter's concept of "clusters," or groups of interconnected firms, suppliers, related industries, and institutions that arise in particular locations, has become a new way for companies and governments to think about economies, assess the competitive advantage of locations, and set public policy."--BOOK JACKET
Competitive strategy : techniques for analyzing industries and competitors by Michael E Porter( Book )
51 editions published between 1980 and 2004 in English and held by 3,034 libraries worldwide
"Now nearing its 60th printing in English and translated into nineteen languages, Michael E. Porter's Competitive Strategy has transformed the theory, practice, and teaching of business strategy throughout the world. Porter introduces his three generic strategies - lowest cost, differentiation, and focuswhich bring structure to the task of strategic positioning. He shows how competitive advantage can be defined in terms of relative cost and relative prices, thus linking it directly to profitability, and presents a whole new perspective on how profit is created and divided." "The ideas in the book address the underlying fundamentals of competition in a way that is independent of the specifics of the ways companies go about competing."--BOOK JACKET

On competition by Michael E Porter( Book )
34 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and German and held by 1,625 libraries worldwide
"On Competition brings together, for the first time, more than a dozen of Porter's articles; two entirely new pieces written especially for this collection as well as eleven of his landmark articles from the Harvard Business Review. In addition, Porter contributes a special introduction, his first statement of how the whole range of his work fits together." "These essays develop some consistent themes: the key to profitability and growth - indeed to survival - is to stake out, and then constantly improve upon, a distinctive competitive position; prosperity arises from the ability to continually improve productivity; and much societal progress comes primarily through private-sector innovation. These themes have proven robust despite dramatic changes in the competitive landscape. On Competition will continue to provide the intellectual foundation for company and country strategies for years to come."--Jacket

Redefining health care : creating value-based competition on results by Michael E Porter( Book )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 793 libraries worldwide
"Health care in the United States and other nations is on a collision course with patient needs and economic reality. Rising costs, mounting quality problems, and increasing numbers of citizens without health insurance are unacceptable--and unsustainable. In Redefining Health Care, Michael E. Porter and Elizabeth Olmstead Teisberg set forth a new vision of the health care system in which every actor is focused on improving value, as measured by health outcomes per dollar expended. The authors prescribe a powerful and actionable agenda for change"--P. [2] of cover
Strategy : seeking and securing competitive advantage ( Book )
8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 775 libraries worldwide
Can Japan compete? by Michael E Porter( Book )
24 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 770 libraries worldwide
"In Can Japan Compete?, the world's leading thinker on competitive strategy, Michael Porter, and his colleagues, Hirotaka Takeuchi and Mariko Sakakibara, draw upon a decade of research to untangle the mystery of Japan's economic difficulties. Doing so is critical to forecasting Japan's economic future, which is of enormous importance to companies and countries everywhere. At a deeper level, however, the book reveals the enduring principles of company strategy and economic policy in modern global competition." "With a special introduction that addresses how Japan's economic health impacts business in the United States, this groundbreaking work reveals that there have long been two Japans - the familiar one that was highly competitive and another Japan, almost invisible, that was highly uncompetitive. If the well-known Japanese government policies and corporate practices explained the nation's success, as so many people believed, why didn't they work in so many large, important parts of the economy where the model was explicitly implemented? In the areas where Japan was competitive, why was profitability so low and the cost of living for Japanese citizens so high?" "Can Japan Compete? also examines why the Japanese economy stopped generating new export industries by the mid-1980s, and why seemingly invincible industries such as semiconductors faltered." "Professor Porter and his colleagues unravel this puzzle. Incisive and thought-provoking, the book provides a compelling framework for understanding the Japanese economic roller coaster and the lessons the rest of the world should learn from it. For Japan itself, the authors conclude that what is needed is nothing less than a new national economic strategy. The book outlines the steps necessary to restore Japan's economic vitality at a time when a new direction for the nation is desperately needed."--BOOK JACKET

Redefining German health care moving to a value-based system by Michael E Porter( file )
14 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 326 libraries worldwide
The German health care system is on a collision course with budget realities. Costs are high and rising, and quality problems are becoming ever more apparent. Decades of reforms have produced little change to these troubling trends. Why has Germany failed to solve these cost and quality problems?

This book lays out an action agenda to move Germany to a high value system: care must be
