Book Description
For the past 15 years, Michael Porter's work has defined our fundamental understanding of competition and competitive strategy. Presented here for the first time as a collective whole are a dozen articles; two entirely new articles and ten of Porter's articles from the Harvard Business Review, as well as a framing introduction from Porter. As a collection, these essays assume a new strength and significance, with each piece augmenting and supporting a complete picture of Porter's perspective on modern competition. To read through this collection is to experience Porter at work: we see first hand as his important theories take shape, deepen, and evolve over time.

Organized around three primary categories: Competition and Strategy: Core Concepts, The Competitiveness of Location, and Competitive Solutions to Societal Problems, these articles develop the building blocks that define competitive strategy as we know it. With his unique ability to bridge economics with management, Porter addresses the important issues of competition, from its relationship with environmental regulation to the counterintuitive role of geography in the global economy. At once eloquent and convincing, the enduring nature of these essays helps us to examine and understand the essence of competition. Among them are three McKinsey Award winners as well as the award-winning "The Competitive Advantage of Nations" and "The Competitive Advantage of the Inner City." This comprehensive volume represents the full scope of Porter's influential work with the Harvard Business Review.

"[Porter's] mission is to bring about an intellectual revolution: to infuse management with the rigour of economics; to elaborate upon economics with examples taken from real life; and, thus, to create a discipline that will enlighten academics and business practitioners alike."
--The Economist "Michael

Porter...is widely accepted as the world's most influential thinker on business strategy... Economics undergraduates, MBA students and business school lecturers all follow his work avidly, while managers search his books for clues on how to gain competitive advantage."
--People Management

"Porter is almost single-handedly laying to rest one of the most enduring tenets of international economics: the principle of comparative advantage. In its place he has developed an exhaustive theory of competitive advantage, one that he is using to teach companies, cities, regions, and nations-and, most recently, groups of nations acting in concert-how to compete on the world stage. Porter travels the globe to advise nonprofit institutions, corporate chieftains, and heads of state."
