Innovation. Productivity. Quality. Companies understand these as key principles for improving competitiveness and achieving sustainable and profitable growth. Governments also recognize the importance of investing in these principles to make their countries more competitive and to achieve economic growth. Most of the time, investments in innovation, productivity and quality are focused on the products and services and the processes to deliver them. This is a necessary and important investment, but this investment will only achieve a sustainable and desirable result if the central focus is on the market. The key to sustainable competitiveness and growth through innovation, productivity and quality is through a set of "market-driven" principles. Only then can a company (& country) truly succeed.
