Published by Jason Wolfe
Competitiveness is a boutique consulting company specialized in working with companies, universities and other institutions that are competing in a particular business and are concentrated in a certain geographical area—i.e., a cluster. A cluster is simply a unit of analysis where economies of scale can be attained, thereby contributing to regional economic development.

Over the past 15 years, Competitiveness has developed a methodology for working with cluster agents in order to improve their competitiveness; that is, so that they can make more money over the long term. The Competitiveness Reinforcement Initiative (CRI) methodology combines two very important components: strategic analysis and a change management process.

Having tried and tested this methodology in more than 130 CRIs worldwide, Competitiveness has standardized the combination of analysis and change management in order to ensure that lessons learned can be assimilated by local teams working on new cluster initiatives elsewhere in the world, in very different socio-economic environments and a wide array of sectors: from Catalonia (Spain) or Rhône Alpes (France), to Atacama (Chile) or Minas Gerais (Brazil), working in clusters related to info-mobility or health services as well as shoe manufacturing, avocados or tourism.
