Module 2 - Global Economic Competitiveness

Module description
The goal of this course is to enable participants to understand the latest frameworks, rankings and tools for competitiveness at both the firm level and the national policy level. Participants will identify the leading drivers of economic growth and competitiveness; cite examples from successful economies; understand how these drivers mutually reinforce one another and factor in elements of social inclusivity and sustainability into growth strategies. The participants will then apply these tools to Ukraine to develop a comprehensive government strategy for building the competitiveness of Ukraine and repositioning the country in global markets. Finally, participants will link this strategy to specific Ukraine Government Cabinet members for implementation.

The course begins by defining and quantifying high economic growth and presenting and analyzing sets of indicators. It then presents a framework for achieving high growth based on the actual examples of countries that have achieved it. Having done this, the course proceeds to ask whether growth is enough and how to incorporate concerns for social inclusivity and sustainability into frameworks for growth and competitiveness. The course also presents the drivers of competitiveness at the level of the firm and of the industry cluster using the Porter Diamond. It proceeds to then present a framework and series of tools, developed by the author for the World Bank, for assessing the competitiveness of Ukraine's economy. The course concludes with an exercise in which participants apply these tools to come up with a newly revised strategy for boosting Ukraine's economic growth including the delegation of responsibilities to various Ministers of state and stakeholders of the economy.

Participants will be introduced to recent authoritative writings of authors on economic growth whose writings are enhanced by newly available data. They will also have a chance to use leading indices such as the Global Competitiveness Index of the World Economic Forum and the Doing Business Index of the World Bank.

By the end of the course students will gain:

  1. Ability to utilize tools such as the Porter Diamond for improving the competitiveness of individual enterprises, industry clusters, regional economies and national economies
  2. Ability to define and quantify rapid, sustained and inclusive economic growth
  3. Understanding key drivers of economic growth
