Human talent: The basis for sustainable competitiveness - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

July 21st, 2015 – Bogotá, Colombia – A few years ago, Professor Michael Porter was invited to Colombia by the Social Foundation to celebrate their centennial. He was asked in an interview why competitiveness is important, and he explained that competitiveness, if properly understood, is the root of prosperity. The main idea of competitiveness is productivity; every place and every nation has certain geographical resources, including the people who live there. The way in which we take advantage of those resources determines the salaries and jobs available. Competitiveness is the true path to prosperity.
