Case Study to Identify Skills that make up a Firm’s Cluster-Capability

  • Saša Šarić
Part of the Strategisches Kompetenz-Management book series (SKM)


As shown by the literature review in the previous chapters, up until now research has not been able to establish a well-defined set of skills that explains how firms create and defend competitive advantages through clusters. Accordingly, appropriate measures and their empirical tests in the cluster context are still missing. This chapter addresses this issue with a fieldwork that was conducted among 14 German manufacturing companies in China’s industrial clusters. It is outlined in figure 25.
