  6. 6. Competitiveness: A concept in evolution:  Initially the concept of business competitiveness is related to “productivity” particularly derivative from the principles of Porter (1990) who states that "competitiveness is determined by productivity, defined as the value of output produced by a unit of labor or capital”.  Later the concept was expanded involving elements that go beyond the company productive. Concepts such as “quality” and “innovation” have taken on greater importance when speaking of a competitive firm. 6  Currently the notion of “sustainability” has been incorporated into the concept of competitiveness.

  12. 12. Stakeholders  STAKEHOLDER THEORY: THE STATE OF THE ART. This paper draws heavily on Freeman, Harrison, Wicks, Parmar, and DeColle, Stakeholder Theory: The State of the Art, Cambridge, U.K.: Cambridge University Press, 2010.  The “stakeholder theory” or “stakeholder thinking” has emerged as a new narrative to understand and remedy three interconnected business problems— the problem of understanding how value is created and traded, the problem of connecting ethics and capitalism, and the problem of helping managers think about management such that the first two problems are addressed  MANAGING FOR STAKEHOLDERS, STAKEHOLDER UTILITY FUNCTIONS, AND COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE. JEFFREY S. HARRISON,* DOUGLAS A. BOSSE, and ROBERT A. PHILLIPS Robins School of Business, University of Richmond, Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.  Stakeholder theory argues that firm welfare is optimized by meeting the needs of the firm’s important stakeholders in a win-win fashion (Harrison and St. John, 1996; Walsh, 2005).  This instrumental view of stakeholder theory suggests that firms that attend to the interests of a broad group of stakeholders enjoy higher levels of performance than firms that focus primarily on one or a few stakeholders (Donaldson and Preston, 1995; Jones, 1995). 12 Businessfokus

February 2013 14 Los medios sociales están cambiando el modo en el que muchas empresas construyen la notoriedad de sus marcas, gestionan su reputación corporativa, atienden las quejas y reclamaciones de sus clientes o incluso se comunican con sus inversores. De un paradigma de interrupción, en el que el anunciante tenía el timón, estamos pasando a un paradigma de conversación, en el que el cliente toma la iniciativa.
