ABSTRACT
This paper provides a framework for analyzing competitiveness and competences. What is competitiveness and how could it be obtained? How competences should be developed in organizations? Which competences are more relevant for competing successfully, human capital or technological competences? Are there any correlations between these variables? This paper aims to summarize the results of our empirical study conducted in Romania and to answer all the above questions. It also aims to present our view regarding competitive positions. Of course, each organization's competitiveness level depends not only on their own competence development process, but also on competitors and their strategies. Dynamics is a main issue that was taken into account when developing our model. The model was tested on a sample of 98 Romanian organizations from different fields of activity. Intelligent organizations can develop useful competences in a shorter period and/or at a higher level than competitors do. The main idea of our model is just a basic one: organizations need to become more and more intelligent.
