Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Oxford Oxford University Press 2011Description: xvii, 303 p.ISBN: 9780199578030.Subject(s): Competition, International | Porter, Michael E., 1947- -Influence | Competition | Strategic planning - ManagementDDC classification: 658.4012 Summary: Harvard professor, Michael Porter has been one of the most influential figures in strategic management research over the last three decades. He infused a rigorous theoretical framework of industrial organization economics with the then still embryonic field of strategic management and elevated it to its current status as an academic discipline. Porter's outstanding career is also characterized by its cross-disciplinary nature. Following his most important work on strategic management, he then made a leap to the policy side and dealt with a completely different set of analytical units. More recently he has made a foray into inner city development, environmental regulations, and health care services. Throughout these explorations Porter has maintained his integrative approach, seeking a road that links management case studies and the general model building of mainstream economics.
