Impact on Software Exports Policymaking in Developing Countries : The Development Of The Software Exports Success Model

Impact: Technological impacts, Societal impacts


Research by Nicholson at Manchester Business School has transformed the software export sector in several developing and transitional countries. The research comprised the identification of a comprehensive Software Export Success Framework that characterises the dimensions of strategic planning required for cluster development and software exports entry. The framework has been adopted directly by policymakers in Egypt and Costa Rica and has become embedded into the National Strategy for Software Exports in both countries, radically transforming their IT and software export industries.
