    Abstract

    The road to international competitiveness and business excellence is paved with good intentions. Nevertheless, its elusive nature and mystery can be peeled away, firstly, by a fuller understanding of certain unrelenting economic forces that govern growth and development and the realities of watershed technology, and, secondly, by harnessing the power of the pillars of international competitiveness, viz., globalization of the enterprise, globalization of markets and marketing, the pursuit of superior processing and the practice of business excellence.

    Keywords:

    Unbalanced growth, watershed technology, global company, global marketing, external minima, processing advantage, CQI, Triple-CIM, concurrent engineering
