Abstract

By carrying out a systematic literature review and empirical research in the form of industry and government focus groups and case studies, this paper seeks to highlight the confusion surrounding the definition of high value manufacturing and the strategies companies adopt for high value repositioning. It questions the definition of terminology that is almost taken for granted in the literature but is not made clear enough to be useful at the organisational level. It provides insight into what is required from government and academia to assist industry to make the transition into a more competitive and sustainable mode of operation. It provides the foundation for further research by identifying those gaps in knowledge and issues that are affecting industry as the latter seeks to compete more effectively. The results provide key themes for future research, allowing academics to understand their role in enhancing the body of knowledge and practice around high value manufacturing.
