Business Competitiveness Switzerland

The IMD World Competitiveness Center, a pioneering institution in the study of competitiveness, has developed a groundbreaking conceptual framework and methodology to study firm competitiveness. The Center partnered with Accenture Switzerland to conduct a study about the competitiveness of the largest Swiss firms.
The report focuses on the firm-specific practices and processes that successful Swiss companies employ to strengthen their competitiveness. Our aim was to obtain insights into the internal behaviors and dynamics of those firms and their effects on the different dimensions of competitiveness.
