Reviews

Rebecca Gerbec ★★★★★

Within scientifical facts authors clearly state different ways of improving the progress of cities and small municipalities. Congrats!

Tara ★★★★★

This book is the perfect way to understand urban and suburban development. Innovativeness described in ch. 7 should be the solution for many small municipalities to build a strong and sustainable future. One of the best lectures on “How to create material and social development for communities?”

Description

In this book, the issue of globalisation together with changed environment of cities is being discussed. The text starts with the introduction and general description of globalization effects on cities. After detailed presentation of the concept of urban competitiveness, authors analyse the strategic management of cities, followed by city partnerships and networks as very important management approaches for overcoming globalization challenges. Afterwards, the system of indicators for measuring performance development of cities is presented in order to identify stages of development and positioning of cities as vital factors for adequate preparation of strategic and development guidelines. Finally, foreign direct investment including their consequences and cities’ response to those processes is presented. With description of innovations and their importance for reaching sustainability, authors conclude the book.
