The yearbook Strategic Competence-Management, Volume 2, 2008 was originally published by Rainer Hampp Verlag.
This 2nd volume of the periodical “Competence-based Strategic Management” (double-blind review process”) addresses the causal relationships between individual skills and collective competence. It focuses upon the phenomenon of close relationships between organizational competences and other ontological levels in the realm of competence-based management. E.g., individual skills and team-based capabilities typically make up an organizational competence. Over and above this, relational competences emerge due to aligned behaviour in interfirm collaboration (e.g. alliances and networks). By now, strategic management research predominantly addressed organizational and relational competences whereas research on human resource management is much more involved in individual and group-related issues. However, a considerable research gap is the still missing integration of the different ontological levels. This volume intends to address this gap by five articles.
