The Institute for Competitiveness, India brings forth the fifth edition of India City Competitiveness Report where the search of the most competitive Indian city finally ends.
The India City Competitiveness Report 2012 is based on the underlying principles of Michael E. Porter, Bishop William Lawrence University Professor, based at Harvard Business School.
The City Competitiveness Index is built on the Porter's Microeconomic Competitiveness - Diamond Model which especially, focuses on the "Strategy and Competitiveness" of regions by taking into consideration their certain crucial parameters.
The model is founded on four pillars of competitiveness that are factor condition, demand conditions, context for strategy and rivalry and supporting and related industries.
These pillars are further divided into 12 sub-pillars wherein factor conditions splits into 6 sub-indices and other three are distributed into 2 sub-indices disjointedly, which in turn are measured through indicators.
All these pillars and sub-indices are directly or indirectly related to one another and help to evaluate the different dimensions of competitiveness.
