Locating global advantage : industry dynamics in the international economy by Richard L Florida( file )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,116 libraries worldwide
"What are the forces that are driving firms and industries to globalize their operations? This volume explores how specific industries have organized their global operations through case studies of seven manufacturing industries: garments and textiles, automobiles and auto parts, televisions, hard disk drives, flat panel displays, semiconductors, and personal computers. Based on long-term research sponsored by the Sloan Foundation, the chapters provide readers with a nuanced understanding of the complex matrix of factor costs, access to inimitable capabilities, and time-based pressures that influence where firms decide to locate particular segments of the value chain. The book examines globalization within the context of five factors affecting locational decisions: advances in transportation and communication; the clustering of knowledge assets; the drive to reduce cycle times; the commodification of existing products; and the relative advantages of proximity to customers. The case studies are framed by Paul Deguid's Preface on the significance of power in value chains and Bruce Kogut's conclusion on the importance of knowledge in locational decisions. Together, the chapters reveal a remarkable diversity of responses across industries to these forces, and suggest that any understanding of globalization must appreciate this diversity."--Publisher's website

Beyond mass production : the Japanese system and its transfer to the U.S. by Martin Kenney( Book )
13 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 653 libraries worldwide
"How can it be that Japanese "transplant" manufacturers are succeeding on U.S. soil, where American companies have failed? Beyond Mass Production provides the first inside look at the Japanese automobile, steel, and rubber companies that are transforming America's industrial heartland. It takes the reader inside the factories, unveiling the methods and techniques Japanese companies use to produce world-class products in America with American workers." "The key, the authors argue, lies in the whole new model of organizing work and production that first emerged in Japan and is now being transferred to the United States. This new system harnesses the intellectual capabilities of all workers, from the Research and Development laboratory to the factory floor, as a source of innovation and productivity improvement. It results in a powerful integration of intellectual and physical labor that will forever transform the way work is done." "Based upon more than five years of detailed research including field studies of dozens of factories, hundreds of personal interviews, and comprehensive surveys of industrial sectors, this book offers compelling evidence of the emergence and transfer of the new system in both the traditional and heavy industries and in the new industries of high-technology age." "Beyond Mass Production offers a powerful and realistic theory of the new face of capitalism as a synthesis of intellectual and physical labor - a melding of innovation and production. In doing so, the authors go far beyond the existing theories of "post-industrialism," "post-fordism," and "flexibility."" "With a wealth of new data, maps, and straightforward examples of the kinds of changes taking place, this book provides an important new perspective for all those interested in Japanese business, industrial competitiveness, foreign direct investment, new work practices, industrial relations, and regional change."--BOOK JACKET

China's innovation challenge : overcoming the middle-income trap by Arie Y Lewin( Book )
7 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 162 libraries worldwide
"The miracle growth of the Chinese economy has decreased from a compound annual growth rate of 10% to less than 7% in 2015. The two engines of growth - export on a scale never before witnessed and massive infrastructure investments - are reaching the point of diminishing returns. This poses the central question which is explored in this book - can China escape the middle-income trap? Assuming current political arrangements remain unchanged and that it does not or cannot adopt Western sociopolitical economic regimes, can China develop an indigenous growth model centered on innovation? This compilation gathers leading Chinese and other international scholars to consider the daunting challenges and complexities of building an innovation-driven Chinese growth model. Providing several comprehensive perspectives, it examines key areas such as the institutional system, technology, sociocultural forces and national policy. The analyses and their conclusions range from strong optimism to deep pessimism about China's future"--
