Book Description: Darwinian Fitness in the Global Marketplace discusses how global business competition is undergoing a dynamic paradigm shift consistent with the Darwinian theory of evolution. Globalization has allowed free entry and exit for firms in the marketplace that has caused congestion of firms both at vertical (product and services led) and horizontal (geographic) business platforms. Thus, small firms struggle for their existence in the marketplace, whilst firms that demonstrate strength for survival, stay as the fittest among the competing firms. This volume discusses new concepts related to the efficiency and effectiveness of competitive strategies required by firms in order to survive in the global marketplace. The discussions in the book are built around the competitive frameworks based on systems thinking and delineate insights analyzing the extensive survey of literature on the subject. The author provides an in-depth analysis of a broad spectrum of important topics on competitive strategies and tactics for students and working managers.
