9783790817102: A Life Cycle for Clusters?: The Dynamics of Agglomeration, Change, and Adaption (Contributions to Economics)

This book studies the determinants of cluster survival by analyzing their adaptability to change in the economic environment. Linking theoretic knowledge with empirical observations, a simulation model (based in the N/K method) is developed, which explains when and why the cluster's architecture assists or hampers adaptability. It is found that architectures with intermediate degrees of division of labor and more collective governance forms foster adaptability.

From the Back Cover:

The phenomenon of non-random spatial concentrations of firms in one or few related sectors (clusters) is intensively debated in economic theory and policy. The euphoria about successful clusters however neglects that historically, many thriving clusters did deteriorate into old industrial areas. This book studies the determinants of cluster survival by analyzing their adaptability to change in the economic environment. Linking theoretic knowledge with empirical observations, a simulation model (based in the N/K method) is developed, which explains when and why the cluster's architecture assists or hampers adaptability. It is found that architectures with intermediate degrees of division of labour and more collective governance forms foster adaptability. Cluster development is thus path dependent as architectures having evolved over time impact on the likelihood of future survival.

Review:

Aus den Rezensionen:

"... Kerstin Press betrachtet aus betriebswirtschaftlicher Perspektive und mit systemwissenschaftlichen Methoden die Fähigkeit von Clustern, den Wandel ihrer Umwelt durch eigenen Wandel zu bewältigen. ... In ... analytischen Abschnitten ihrer Arbeit geht die Autorin souverän mit der umfangreichen Clusterliteratur um und kann mit einer klaren Argumentation die wesentlichen Wirkungszusammenhänge aus unterschiedlichen Theoriekulturen aufeinander beziehen. ... Die inhaltlichen Überlegungen von Press zu den Anforderungen an Simulationsmodelle bleiben überzeugend ..." (Christoph Scheuplein, in: Zeitschrift für Wirtschaftsgeographie, 2008, Vol. 52, Issue 2-3)
