Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This book provides an excellent theoretical grounding in the key economic principles of strategy with a focus on the routes to and the constraints on value creation. Assuming little prior knowledge of economics, the book presents economic concepts accessibly and concisely. With little use of algebra it follows a clear and logical structure, divided into three main areas: Eliminate or Dominate, Co-operate, and Create Sustainable Advantage. Pedagogically enhanced, each chapter will feature: learning objectives, keywords, discussion questions, tasks and problems, learning outcomes, European examples and case studies, and further reading. This text is supported by a companion web site containing an Instructors Manual and PowerPoint slides.
