For some time, the University of California Berkeley Roundtable on the
International Economy (BRIE) has been examining regionalism in the Asia-
Pacific and Western Europe (see ). Much of the extant literature on this topic has focused on the
causes and consequences of formal inter-governmental agreements. BRIE’s
research, led by Michael Borrus, Dieter Ernst, and John Zysman, paid greater
attention to the underlying corporate decisions and new organizational forms that
have driven integration at the level of the market.

Targeting vehicle owners and fleet managers: improving in-fleet vehicle maintenance.
Measures to improve in -fleet vehicle maintenance by changing the behaviour of vehicle owners
and fleet managers generally centre on the development of an inspection and maintenance (I and
M) programme. These measures have taken on different forms in different jurisdictions
(centralized or decentralized, public or private) and use different testing equipment, techniques
and drive cycles. I and M can be supplemented or phased in through a programme of mobile

This book explores the origins and practices of competency management, which has
arisen in the reactions of governments and managers to globalisation and increased
international competition in advanced industrial countries. The United States of
America (USA) and Britain have tended to lead the way in responding to these
environmental pressures by seeking to retain or regain their competitive advantage.
Each country has adopted different approaches to these pressures, although each has
influenced the other and some convergence of strategies and responses has evolved.
Targets also move dramatically over time. SME development policies in Western Europe, for example,
focused on employment creation in the late 1980s and early 1990s. By the end of the century the emphasis
had changed to international competitiveness and innovation. As a result, policy targets moved towards
technology issues and creation of an enterprise culture. In transition economies a major focus has been upon
creating an enabling environment for the market economy.
In recent years, legislative and market requirements have driven the need to reduce fuel
consumption while meeting increasingly stringent exhaust emissions. This trend has
dictated increasing complexity in automotive engines and new approaches to engine
design. A key research objective for the automotive engineering community has been the
potential combination of gasoline-engine specific power with diesel-like engine
efficiency in a cost-competitive, production-feasible power train.

The principal charge to the Committee on Elementary Particle Physics in the
21st Century was to recommend priorities for the U.S. particle physics
program for the next 15 years. Described in the Executive Summary and
more fully presented in the Overview, the committee’s considered response is laid
out in detail in the main text of this report, which begins by discussing the scientific
challenges in particle physics and conveying the current status of the U.S.
program and then presents the committee’s consensus on the best way to sustain a
competitive and globally relevant U.S.
Globalization wrote: “...the speed by which your latest invention can be made obsolete or turned into a
commodity is now lightening quick. Therefore, only the paranoid, only those who are constantly looking
over their shoulders to see who is creating something new that will destroy them and then staying just one
step ahead of them, will survive.
The U.S. food and agricultural sector is undergoing rapid change in
production, distribution, and consumption of food and fiber, and in technology.
There have been dramatic increases in production and marketing coordination,
market contracting, concentration of agricultural output by fewer and fewer
operations, and consolidation of agricultural operations. These increases are
manifested in significant long- and short-term changes in farm size, number,
distribution, and location.
Nowadays most companies are facing a great pressure caused by shorter product life cycle and wider product variety in the global market. To identify customer needs has become a crucial factor in any product development in this circumstance. It is an imperative to create a high-quality information channel that runs directly between customers in the target market and the product developers , who have to listen to the customer voice so that they can create customer centric values and thus meet the market competition.
