About this book

Globalization has created new opportunities and challenges for late industrialization. This book identifies underlying factors for latecomer firms to catch up as system integrators, or upgrade as suppliers in fast-globalizing industries. With in-depth case studies, several perspectives on firm growth are integrated into a comprehensive framework.
