Innovation and Competitiveness

The recent economic downturn brought increased focus on the nation’s competitiveness and the solid foundation it provides for value creation and jobs--key aspects of a strong, resilient economy and more adaptable, agile organizations.

Globalization and technology are just two of the many factors that have changed government and business sectors. Energy, sustainability, resources, and talent are also becoming priorities as organizations look to create opportunities for the future.  The nation’s business and government leaders are recognizing the need to develop and support an over-arching strategy in support of growth, economic stability, and global competitiveness. Policy changes, public-private collaboration, innovation, and talent development should be viewed as critical success factors for competitiveness today and tomorrow.
