The Innovation Marathon: Lessons from High Technology Firms

US microelectronics firms face one of the most intensely competitive business environments in the world. Like a host of other industries, its stakes are the rich US domestic market and a burgeoning global market as well. Foreign firms often come to the fray with government subsidies and tariff barriers, while the US competitors typically must go it alone amidst high wages, high capital costs, price pressures and torrid technological change.

But the electronics environment isn't unique; it is only the leading edge of competitive circumstances becoming widely visible on all sides. In automobiles, textiles, steel and other basics, as well as newer service businesses, intense global competition from increasingly skilled rivals is a fact of life.
