Negotiating Competitiveness

Negotiating Competitiveness




As the United States pursues more globally competitive labor relations strategies,it can learn from Germany,whose employment system is characterized by high wages and high productivity,a negotiated approach to labor relations,and a powerful ability to diffuse workplace innovations. In turn,as Germany confronts the challenges of integrating the economy of the former East Germany,it would benefit from an examination of the U.S. System's capability to generate high-performance innovations in employment relations. Drawing on the examples of leading organizations such as GM's Saturn Division in the United States and BASF in Germany,Negotiating Competitiveness suggests a mix of public and private sector strategies that can capitalize on the strengths of both approaches to industrial change and organizational innovation.
