TCI2013 The change of cluster specialization through the process of globalization

  1. 1. The change of cluster specialization through the process of globalization Mads Bruun Ingstrup & Poul Rind Christensen Academic Summit: Transnational cluster collaboration 4 September 2013
  2. 2. The Change of Cluster Specialization through the Process of Globalization Mads Bruun Ingstrup and Poul Rind Christensen
  3. 3. Globalization is weakening the inner dynamics of clusters The local cluster production system is being split up Globalization is fostering clusters because of the concentration of for example knowledge, innovation and spillovers
  4. 4. Exploring how and to which extend the specialization of clusters changes as a result of how globalization influences the organization of production within them
  5. 5. Clusters should be understood as configurations that: comprise a proximity and a specialization encompass competing and cooperating actors and produce positive spillovers Marshall (1920), Porter (1998)
  6. 6. Cluster types Andersen et al. (2006)
  7. 7. Global value chain perspective (Gereffi et al., 2001; Gereffi et al., 2005) How clusters take part in systems of global production and how this affects the local economic development and upgrading Bair and Gereffi (2001), Humphrey and Schmitz (2002) and Sturgeon et al. (2008)
  8. 8. Division of labor Pre-production activities Production activities Post-production activities R&D Design Construction Production planning Procurement Training Market analyses Production Surveillance Monitoring Logistics Repair Programming Quality check Documentation Transport Montage Customer service Sales Marketing Banff et al. (2004)
  9. 9. Research Method  A qualitative, descriptive, comparative and theoretically informed case study (Sayer, 1992)  Main source of information is secondary data. Publications like ‘Business clusters in times of pressure’ and ‘When milk transforms into steel’  Up-coming interviews with key actors representing triple helix in the two clusters
  10. 10. The Textile & Fashion Cluster Mid- Jutland Production activities Pre-production activities Post-production activities In the cluster Outside the cluster
  11. 11. The Stainless Steel Cluster Triangle Region Production activities Pre-production activities Post-production activities In the cluster Outside the cluster
  12. 12. Producer driven Buyer driven Pre-Production The Textile & Fashion Cluster Mid-Jutland Production The Stainless Steel Cluster Triangle Region Post-production The Textile & Fashion Cluster Mid-Jutland
  13. 13. Change in specialization The Textile & Fashion Cluster Mid- Jutland
  14. 14. Change in specialization The Stainless Steel Cluster Triangle Region
