Summary

China has become one of the fastest-growing economies in the world ever seen in recent times. In the last three decades China has transformed itself from a command economy to a market one, albeit "with socialist characteristics", and its management systems have been reformed accordingly. In the light of these changes, Malcolm Warner, one of the leading authorities on management in China, explores the past, present and future of Chinese management. The book examines the history of management practices in "the Middle Kingdom", outlining the influence of traditional Chinese values, especially the Confucian inheritance, and also the legacy of the imperial bureaucracy with its meritocratic examination system, and the impact of industrialization and the influx of foreign-owned businesses in the late nineteenth century. It considers the current state of China "s management, showing how a new breed of manager has evolved since the beginning of Deng Xiaoping "s reforms. The book concludes with reflections on how management in China is likely to develop in future, especially on how far it will converge with global practices or how far management "with Chinese characteristics" will prevail.
